Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
This happens from time to time. Could be time for a new disk drive. In the mean time,
Shut down the computer for about five seconds and then turn it back on. Start pressing the key that gets your computer into its BIOS settings.
***To enter the BIOS, press the Esc key when the Toshiba script shows up on the display. You should then get a message to press the F1 key to continue. Press the F1 key and you should be in the BIOS. The Boot sequence is on Page 2 of the Bios settings on many Toshibas. To get to page 2 press the page down key. Make sure you follow the screen prompts because your system may be slightly different.***
That key is different on many brands of computers. It may be displayed which key it is on your screen on boot time; but, that message comes and goes quickly.Once in the BIOS, do not make any changes to settings. Simply attempt to open your CD drive. If it will not open while the BIOS screen is open, you have a hardware problem. If it does open, you have an Operating System problem.
That being said - you can open the disk drive manually by inserting a paper clip or push pin into the hole in the front ot the drive. (see picture below)
