Sounds like there's no power going to the drive, or it's jammed.

Stick a paperclip into the hole on the drive's faceplate. This should manually eject it. Close it and you should see a blinking green light, if not then the drive is not getting any power.

My Toshiba Model L505-S5993 laptop won't read


Hello there,

The problem is that the Drives lens is already bad and cannot read any disc, no matter the type of disc you put into it, it wont read it still. The solution is to replace the drive. Replacing it is the best way to solve the problem. If not trying to replace the lens is going to be futile as the lens for the driver is not available and when you install a new disc drive, it will have to install the drivers software.

If you replace the lens, the laptop wont be able to install the drivers of the lens as it reads it alongside the driver itself and if they are not compatible, it wont install the drivers software. So my best advice is for you to replace the CD drive.

My laptop is a typical example because my disc drive is also bad. And i had to replace the drive and not the lens.

Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

How to remove bios password of L505 S5984 model laptop


The basic input/output system (BIOS) is essential computer motherboard firmware. Using the BIOS menu, you can configure many system settings--for instance, the computer boot sequence--and also configure hardware, such as optical (CD/DVD) drives or a monitor. An optional password protects BIOS from unauthorized access. However, you may need to remove the BIOS password to facilitate the configuration of your system. The Toshiba laptop model Satellite Pro T1000 allows you to change BIOS settings and remove the password with a special Windows hardware setup program. 1. Click "All Programs" from the Windows start menu.
2. Open the folder "TOSHIBA" and click on "Utilities."
3. Click on "HWSetup" to start the Toshiba Hardware BIOS utility.
4. Click on the tab "Password" in the HWSetup window.
5. Select the radio button "Not Registered" in the field "Password."
6. Click the "Apply" button to to remove the password and save that change in the laptop BIOS.
Please rate me if you find it very helpful.

Thank you very much. Good day ahead on you.

My Toshiba Satellite L505-S5966 computer screen is black. Motor or a fan is still running. Numberlock light is on. It will not power up or down. It will not eject cd.


Press the ON/OFF button, and hold it for 10 seconds. That should turn-off your computer.
Turn it on, and you should be able to eject the CD.
