Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

1 Answer

The screw that holds the cd drive in place came off, need help openeing laptop.

One day there was a rattling in my laptop and I shook out a small screw through one of the crack in the laptop. Every time I would hit the back side of the laptop by the cd drive the computer would shut down. Well I found out I was easily able to slide the cd drive out of the laptop because there was no screw holding it in place. Can anyone help me take apart the laptop to screw the cd drive back in or have any other solutions?

Take off the keyboard and plastics surrounding the keyboard, the screws for these are on the bottom. This should allow you to see where the screw goes for the CD drive when you slide it in. The plastic casing should snap apart rather easily, if it hangs anywhere check for a screw you may have missed.

If you're leary about doing this, go to Acer's site and download the manual. It will have diagrams of the machine to give you a better picture of taking it apart.

How do I remove the DVD Drive on a Toshiba Satellite 1955-S805 laptop and where can I buy a new one


To remove the drive you will need to remove the small screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the drive in place. Look for a CD symbol near a screw aproximatly 6 inches in from the DVD drive center. Remove that screw and the DVD should slide out. The best place to get a replacement drive is Ebay Do a search for the model and DVD and you should see many for sale

My Dell PP39L has a problem and will not start up. I need to get a CD out from the laptop but the eject buttom does not work. There is NO small hole to insert a paper clip like some models, so how do I get...


unscrew what ever screws are holding it in place and open up the cd drive manually. if it is a laptop cd drive, there should only be a few screw on the cd drive itself befor you can retrieve your disc.
normally located on the top and sides. be warned the opening up the cd drive that way will void the warenty. and i cant be held responsible if it brakes or gets damaged in the process.

Dell D600 cd rom replacement instructions


There should be a screw on the bottom holding the cd rom in place. Unscrew the screw and then with one end of a paper clip put it in the small hole on the front of the cd rom and the door should open. Now go ahead and pull the cd-rom out.

Now you can go ahead and put the new cd-rom in place and put the screw in and then turn on the laptop and let it boot up into windows and windows might redetect it. Go into my computer and you should see your cd-rom in there.

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.

Remove cd/dvd drive acer travelmate 2310


I'm not an expert on Acer, but I can tell you that *most* CD/DVD drives just "pull" out with a little bit of oomph applied. It's just a plastic connector on the other end of the drive that connects to the motherboard inside.

Eject the drive tray, and *GENTLY* pull out with a slight bit of pressure. If you feel your muscles tensing up, you are pulling too hard and perhaps there is a hidden screw - generally, though, if there is a screw, it's in plain sight on the bottom of the case (and obviously should be removed first!)

Hope this helps - remember to rate! :)
