There is a service manual at HP/Cpq supportsite that shows 2 screws to remove underneath before you can take out the CD/DVD device.

Need to replace cd player in Compaq persrio 700 how do I do it? no screws in hinge covers?


Laptop off, remove the AC adapter, (Charger), if installed.
Remove the battery. Turn the laptop over so the bottom side is up.

Face the optical drive towards you. (CD drive)
See how there is a rectangular looking panel, on the bottom of the laptop? (Looking at the CD drive, the panel is over the CD drive. Bottom side of laptop)

See the single Philips head screw in the panel, towards the left corner?
Remove it.
Now take a paper clip, and bend it out straight. Make a small U-shape on the end of the straightened out paper clip, so you have something to hang onto.

On the drive tray that comes out of the CD drive, is a small hole. Insert the paper clip straight in.

This is a manual release to open the CD drive tray.
Gives you something to hang onto, to pull the CD drive out.

To install the new cd drive, (Player), just reverse these steps.

[Open drive tray. Slide CD drive in. Replace screw]

HOW DO I CHANGE CD/DVD DRIVE IN A TOSHIBA SATELLITE P105-S6114?


You can use the Toshiba Satellite guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

I need solution


Ok, this is a misworded error message on dells end. this laptop does not have a modular bay instead it has a locked in disc drive. Based on what i have seen on other dell laptops i would have to say the cd drive is going bad. To test this try removing the cd drive. Power the laptop on and push the eject button then power the laptop off. Flip the laptop overand there will be a screw to hold the drive in, this screw will be close to the center and will be the only screw in a square hole, remove this screw. Now if you followed my directions, you should have the drive out. Pull the tray out as far as it will go then grab the two sides closest to the laptop and gently pull it out. If you are having problems you can stick a flat screw driver in the square hole and push the piece of metel to the side to remove.

Now power the laptop on it may say something about there not being a cd drive(optical drive) if it does not say: "the device in the system modular bay cannot be identified" then you need to replace to CD drive.

Change CDROM on Toshiba 2805 -s 202


IDE 1 is the CDRom (or any optical device attached). IDE 0 (zero) is the Hard drive. So this message is telling you there is a problem with the DVD/CD-Rom, that has halted the boot process. Now you have no choice but to go to BIOS (read startup screen to find the procedure, usually DEL, F2, or F12 keys) and see if the problem can be corrected there (or if not, disable the drive, save change, and try rebooting again). If this is not possible, then you might try booting from an external device (floppy, CD, USB etc) if your system allows that (and if you have the boot software/media). Otherwise, you must remove the drive, in order to regain your desktop (pass the halt stage in boot process). Here is how to remove the CD:

Underneath the laptop, there will be a screw about 4 inches in, on a centyer line direct from the DVD/CD tray panel. Remove this screw. Insert a pin or paper clip (carefully, and STRAIGHT in!) to the small hole next to the CD tray release button. This opens the tray manually. Pull it out to the full open position, then GENTLY pull further, and the whole drive will release from the laptop.

Once you have reached the desktop, you should try to remove the previous driver if possible, via start menu/settings/control panel/system (or r-click my computer and select properties). In system control panel, there is a hardware settings tab. Here you can remove or disable hardware. Try adding a "generic CD-Rom", so the DVD might get past boot process when you reinstall it (later, below).

Now, try to start the laptop without DVD/CD. If it starts normally, your driver change was incompatible, or possibly, in the process of changes you did something that impaired the drive or its ROM (or perhaps needs to be cleaned).

Now try reinstalling the CD Rom drive (no screws yet, just insert fully). If you are still at the same halt, you have cut yourself out of using this CD, unless perhaps tou can reboot with a windows CD while the drive is installed, and let windows detect and install a PROPER driver.

If that is not possible, you need another DVD/CD drive. You can also buy a replacement or cheap older model for testing system at any legitimate advanced PC shop, or many used computer parts stores. Try the drive before you buy, just slide in and mount a CD/DVD. (you may have a special adapter that must be removed from the old OEM drive and attached to new one, and the tray cover may need to be switched to allow the CD to close for testing)

Regardless of the outcome of any of the above, please post your results, and the complete text of the black boot screen here, so I can analyze the problem -or any other possibilities that may be indicated by the post dialog.

Removing the hdd in my toshiba 1135-s125


OK, This is a big undertaking if you are completely new.

1st, if you can get a static guard wrist band - great!
2nd You will be dealing with plenty of screws so keep track

In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

e3673a1.jpg

I have .a Toshiba Satellite 1135-S155. It should be a similar configuration, same family/1135-S1xx series.

You will have to remove a total of 9 Phillips screws.

Place the underside of the PC up.
Disconnect all power, cables and Battery from Laptop
.
The first screw is located just under the Toshiba Serial Number / Bar codes, just above where the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive is located.
Mine is labeled (F5). Unscrew it and place in a safe place.
Pull DVD/CD-ROM combo drive out it is an assembly.

The Hard Drive is located under the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive.
The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is enclosed within a caddy containing the remaining eight screws.

There are four screws holding the caddy rails to the Laptop and four screws holding the rails, caddy and Hard Drive as an assembly.
Unscrew and place in a safe place/ container they are small. Disassemble the HDD from caddy assembly; place your HD in the caddy and reassembly.


Here is another Toshiba HDD access that is slightly more
straightforward than my 1135 series
So you get an idea of where a HDD is visually:

Above is a photo of the Battery sliding out


Below is the Hard Drive Removal

I hope this gives you an idea of how to go about it for your
particular Laptop

DVD Drive


once the screw is removed, you may need to insert the tip of the screwdriver, behind a small curved plate, where screw went in. Also, on outside of the laptop, there is usually a small button/tab key, which may be pressed in, then retracted, to pull the DVD drive out of it's bay.
