In some models you need to take screws. But most of them are easy just play around with the frond cover, that is just set with rubber pins onto the cahsis, so unplug them and also the side panel of the case.You wil find screws taht hold the CD_ROM.

How to open the disk drive


Open the Computer folder in Start Menu, select the DVD Rom Icon, right click, select Eject. If a DVD or CD has exploded inside remove DVD Rom and open the DVD case. Sometimes if you open the front case door cover and access the DVD/CD drive door you will see a tiny hole to insert a open paper clip that will open the tray.

CD in stuck in the computer and I can't get it out using the eject button. How do I get it to come out?


hi,
its too simple. you dont need to worry.. Check the front side of the CD ROM. you will find there one small hole. Now just take a thing, which is around the 4 to 6 inch (min is 4") long and can pass through that hole (for eg. take medium size U pin, and remove all bends and make it straight or long needle) Now insert this equipment in that hole and press. your ROM will eject...
Hope this has helped you ... Thanks....

Replace the disc drive on hp pavilion notebook


1. First of all, you need to shut off your computer . To do this press the power button on the front of the computer after you have shut it down from Start> Shutdown on your start menu.

2. Unplug the power cord from your computer. This is the big black/white/grey plug that plugs into the power supply on the back of your PC.

3. Unplug the rest of the wires from the back of the computer.

4. Find a sturdy flat surface on which to work on.

5. Unscrew all screws from the back of your computer except the power supply screws. You will make a mess if you unscrew the power supply screws.

6. Open your computer up by taking the side panel off, or sliding the cover off. It might be difficult but it will come off if you have taken all the screws out.

5. Now before touching anything inside, it is a good idea to hook up to an anti-static wrist strap. If you dont have an anti-static wrist strap, just touch the side of the computer where it is metal to deshock yourself. Then when you touch the inner components you wont risk damaging any of them.

7. Find the CD-Rom drive, it should be about 1.5 inch thick 5 inches wide, and 6 inches long. Unplug all plugs from the back of the cd-rom drive, there should be an IDE (wide) plug, a cd plug (small) and a power plug (medium).

8. Once you find the CD-Rom drive, find the screws holding it onto the chassis. unscrew those screws on both sides of the Cd-rom drive. Be careful not to unscrew any screws holding the cd-rom drive together.

9. Now, you just have to remove the cd-rom drive, carefully by sliding it either forward or backward. Check the jumpers on your new cd-rom before moving to the next step. A typical cd-rom drive should be set on slave if it is using the same IDE cable on the same cable.


10. Now that you've removed the cd-rom drive the next step is to install your new CD-rom drive. To do this, simply slide the cd-rom drive in from the front of the computer, controls facing forward. Plug all the plugs back into the cd-rom and screw everything back into place.

How to replace CD-ROM in Medion MD40566


Generally what you will need to do is first open the computer case. Then you will see 2 screws on each side of the CD-Rom Drive. You will need to remove these screws. Now you should be able to slide the CD-ROM forward away from the front of the case. Before you completely remove it you will need to remove the cables at the back of the CD-ROM before removing them note the position of them. Now that the CD-ROM is removed bring it to the store and ask the associate for the correct replacement. Once you bring the replacement home installation is reverse of the listed procedure. One thing to not is the position of the Jumper on Slave, Master, or Cable Select. This will be explained on the instructions that come with the new drive. Whatever the jumper setting is on the old drive make sure it is set the same on the new drive. Once this is done turn the computer on and you should be all set. Good luck and keep me posted.

Thanks - Tech101
