The CD drive is held by two screws on the bottom near the small handle you use to pull the drive. Take out these two screws and it should slide out rather easily. If it doesn't check to see if you removed the right screws. It doesn't matter how many screws you remove, just so long as you put them back in.

HOWEVER, it requires the Atheros Client Utility v2.4.2.18, to be installed. If it isn't installed on the laptop, this utility needs to be installed first. Then the Driver above.

My toshiba satelite A45-S250 doesnt start the windows, it keeps rebooting and I am not being able to install it again, my dvd drive isnt working


Unplug the power cord, take out the battery and hold the power button down for 10-15 seconds. This should take your computer out of the reboot loop that it is stuck in. If it doesn't, try using an external CD drive from Wal-Mart or Radio Shack, your computer should register it and you can load the windows CD from there.
