Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

DVD drive stopped working

My dvd drive on my Toshiba Satellite A100 has stopped working and I'm not sure why. It opens and closes just fine, but doesn't read discs (any discs). I'm wondering if it's the laser, or something else - anyone know how I can figure it out?

Take a can of air and blow some air onto the laser so that way you know the laser is free of debris.

Now try a few different DVD's, if it still doesn't work then that means the laser is bad and you would have to replace the dvd.

Go to www.ebay.com Type: Make and Model of your laptop and refine search DVD driver, you will be presented with a choice of DVD units at different prices, stay away from the used drivers, "they are a gamble" But you need a DVD/R-WRITER to burn discs and watch movies.

I CANNOT OPEN MY DVD DRIVER ON MY TOSHIBA NOTE BOOK


I have never worked with a toshiba notebook.However every DVD/CD driver has a small pin sized hole on the front of it .This hole is sort of a manual switch.If getting the drive open is urgent, insert a pin in the hole and press gently, the drive should pop open.Get your drive checked though.Most likely it's the motor which has failed.Within warranty periods it's a free replacement.

Look at it close and you will see a tiny hole. Put a gem clip or something that small into the hole and it should open. You can also right click the drive in ( my computer) to open it up.

Please rate me if this helps.
