    To remove the DVD/CD-RW drive from the HP/Compaq NC6220 laptop, you first need to turn off the laptop. Turn the whole laptop upside down, and remove the one screw to the right of the dvd drive. You should be able to see that this screw is along the outer edge of the laptop, and toward the back. Once the screw is removed, you have to press inward with both of your thumbs on the actual DVD drive itself. You have to press pretty hard to get the DVD drive to unlatch itself. Once you have pressed hard enough, the DVD drive will pop out enough for you to get a good grip on it to pull it straight out for replacement, etc.

In order to remove the DVD/CD-RW from an HP/Compaq NC6220, you must first turn off the laptop. Then turn it upside down, so that the bottom is facing upwards. Remove the one screw to the right side of the DVD drive. It will be located at the edge of the DVD drive, near the rear of the laptop. Next, you will need to press inward on the drive itself with both of your thumbs. You will need to press pretty firmly, and deep enough to unlatch the drive. Once you have pressed it deeply enough, the drive will pop out far enough for you to get a good grip on it. You can leave the screw out from now on. It is no longer necessary to hold the drive in place. It was furnished to protect it during shipment. The DVD drive is plug-n-play, so you can unmount it using the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the SysTray on the bottom of your screen near the clock. Just right click on the little icon that shows a green arrow aimed toward the left, and another image below that (the optical drive). This allows you to choose the DVD for safe removal. Once this drive is clicked for removal, the computer will safely allow you to unmount the DVD drive, and insert a floppy drive, or some other appropriate hardware.

if you need to ask "how", you should take it to a qualified professional technician. Or, $30 is the price for an external CD/DVD-writer that connects via USB.

1 many times the the CD cant load as the files in the CD are corrupt or the CD is not read by the drive corectly...so get a new WinXP CD

BIOS screen can be enabled by pressing the F1, or F2 or the Del key as on as you start the PC
3 once in BIOS screen look for boot seq and change the boot drive to the foll
1st boot device - USB CD / DVD rom drive
2nd boot device - internal CD rom drive
and so on

if you can do the above then try the WinXP installation using the external CD rom drive....
else there is a little complicated method of using a pen drive thru USB (will discuss that later) provided your BIOS alows booting from USB

Restore


If you laptop was not supplied with a Windows CD then most likely the hard disk on your laptop has a recovery partition on the hard drive and you can restore your laptop back to the condition when you first purchased the laptop using this recovery partition.
HP can also supply a recovery CD for your model Compaq if you request one. This is needed when the hard disk has failed.
Read your laptop documentation for the instruction on the restore procedure. You also get this information from HP's WEB site.

I have HP nc6220 Laptop, I have this error whenever Im booting the laptp Drive lock multibay password


Hi there.
This is a common problem with HP laptops.
The best way to deal with it is remove the hard drive, CD/DVD rom and the battery for around an hour.
While the HDD and the CD/DVD are out clean the contacts and the lens of the CD/DVD also clean the compartments and the air vents of dust. when the hour is up reassemble the HDD and CD/DVD and it should let you log into windows, when you are in windows go to HP support website and download a bios update for your model and install it, reboot the laptop and the problem should not come back.
HP say that the most likely cause is dust but a bios update is recommended.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have a compaq presario SR2150NX and i need to replace the CD drive. What should i buy


The solution is that do not replace the cd drive !!
You could buy a new DVD writer drive which can be very useful.
You can use both "cd drive" and the new "dvd drive" at a time.
New DVD drive comes only for rs.1200/- to 1500/- .(LG,Samsumg or moserbaer).

Yes ! you can operate them normally as usual.
Only call your computer engg. to make connections or the shopman to fit the dvd and cd drive.

Dvd rom problem


as soon as a dvd writer drive only starts to play cd's, cdrw's or only reports that you have a CDRW drive when inserting a blank DVD, the writers laser is worn out or faulty and no longer recognises dvd's, and so needs replacing i'm afraid, but as you may know not all dvd drives are hot swapable and need to be replaced by a repairer.
