Toshiba A60-DVD rom doesn't read

My Toshiba Satellite A-60 laptop (with Celeron D processor and 256 MB RAM) is not able to read VDVs. I can burn CDs in the combo drive without problems, but whenever I insert a DVD, it cannot detect the same. What's the problem?

You may not have a DVD burner... I would agree with Sun.

I have problum dvd writer


is the DVD writer the original unit in the notebook ? if not usre, refer to the manual -- if you dont have manual, go here (it will cost a little )
http://user-guides.co.uk/cddownload/Toshiba/ToshibaSatellite/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-A100-TOSHIBA-Satellite-A100-Satellite-Pro-A100-161676.html

before you format, try replacing the DVD writer another unit similar

buy recovery CDs here
http://restore-disk.com/restoredisks/Toshiba/ToshibaSatellite/Toshiba-Satellite-A100-S8111TD-with-Intel-Celeron-Processors-XP-Driver-421349.html

i would restore the notebook to factory settings -- this is the best option in getting the computer back to the way it worked originally going to the factory settings management portion in the system and or use your recovery CDs to format and re isntall everything

Upgrading RAM and Batteries


For batteries, my advice would be to stick with the brand of the unit (Toshiba, in this case). Toshiba lists a 12 cell battery on their website under the "laptop accessories" section of www.toshiba.com. For the A60, the part number is listed as PA3382U-1BRS and costs $152.99. You can search google for another place to buy (perhaps where you bought the laptop) but be careful that you don't get a generic in place of the original (OEM). With memory, Kingston and PNY are the aftermarket leaders and you can't go wrong with either. Kingston's website lists a whole slew of specific A60 models. Some with 256MB on board (not removable) and some with 512MB on board. So, a 512MB chip may give you 768MB or 1024MB depending on the exact model. Max memory seems to be either 1.25GB or 1.5GB depending on how much is onboard (and not removable). Installation is usually easy on any laptop and typically requires only a small screw driver to remove the memory cover on the bottom. The owners manual for the laptop likely gives the steps to add memory.

Toshiba satellite A60 no boot


We can only assume that because the cd drive operates then the motherboard is operating in part, although, the southbridge chip may be damaged, as the northbridge works memory etc. Maybe it is that the processor is fried as there is no fan and the system then shuts down. Toshiba are probably half way there with the answer, unless; they investigated further and decided it was not the processor but the motherboard.
