Never taken that one apart. But if it doesn't slide out the back it will slide out the front. Sometimes they have latches. Sometimes I have to take the front Bezel off so that drives will slide out the front. Got a digital camera to send me pics?

How do I nremove the cover on a Gateway 200arc to replace the DVD drive..... Thanx


Looking at it from the bottom with the dvd drive to your right look for a screw about five and a half inches or so from the right hand side will either be in the middle line of the dvd drive or offset to oneside or the other. remove it and gently pull on the dvd drive or use an old credit card to pry it out till the connectors release. Then slide the replacement drive into place, and put the screw you removed back in.

How do you remove and replace a dvd drive on a 701z laptop


Look on the bottom of the laptop - flip it over and you will find a screw that secures the drive to the laptop. It will have a small picture of a disc next to the hole that the Phillips head screw is located. Remove the screw, with the tip of the screwdriver push the mounting bracket outwards to slide the entire drive away to remove the unit - then it will slide out.

How do i remove the cd/dvd drive for my acer3003lc so that a can replace it


You can use the Toshiba Satellite 5205 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.

for the acer 3000
1. At the back of the laptop remove the three screws on the support posts for the screen
2. Open the laptop fully and lift the plastic panel that has the power button.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard in place
4. Carefully slide the keyboard towards the monitor and lift.
5. To the left of the keyboard ribbon cable is the screw that's been causing all this grief.
6. Remove, slide out optical drive, reassemble.

HP Compaq nx9010 CD drive replacement


You are correct.
The screws for the dvd drive is under the keyboard.
there should be 2 tabs one above the f4 and the other above f12 take a regular head screw driver put it where those tabs are and gently pull down towards the touchpad and the keyboard should come up easily.
Now under that keyboard in the center you will see a opening and inside that opening you will see 1 philip head screw remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Right below where you removed that screw you will see another opening which has another philps head screw in it.
Remove that screw counter clockwise and the dvd rom should pull straight out with ease.
To put it back together just reverse the steps.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to ask.

Dvd is not working, tv work just fine


My grandson's Lightning McQueen dvd player was acting up. The tray would come out about a 1/4 inch and then go back in. Once I got the tip on how to remove the case, I was able to access the dvd player. You must remove all four screws from the bottom of the unit. Carefully remove the smile from the front of the tray. After that you can slide the black tabs toward the front and get to the dvd player. To remove the dvd player, first carefully disconnect all the plugs from the back of the player, better to use a needle nose pliers than to try to grasp each connector with thumb and forefinger as you might inadvertantly pull a wire out of it's connector plug.. Now on each side of the player are two detent tabs. With two small pairs of pliers or needle nose pliers, pull the detents out a little on both sides and then the dvd player will slide out. It helps if you have a third hand to pull the player while you gently pull the detents out a bit. Once out, I removed the four bottom screws and the two top ones that are under the silver tape. Lift up the top from the rear and slide back a little then off. Once the metal cover is off, you must remove the four screws that hold the plastic part of the player to the metal base of the case. I discovered that the tray had jumped off it's track, or rather was probably forced off it's track by my grandson's pulling or pushing the tray too hard. If the tray comes out manually, then the small drive belt from the slide motor is probably suspect. Replace the belt. If the belt is ok, but the slide is off it's track, then carefully pull on the sides outboard from the tray, I was able to put the tray back on it's track. It's a small white pin or tab that rides inside a long track on one side of the tray. Leave the tray slide out while you are putting the four screws back in holding the player to the metal base. Put the metal top back on with the open end on the slide end and press is down onto the metal base. Replace the top two and four bottom screws. Before you slide the player back throught the detents, aim the extended slide throught the slot in the front of the case and snap the smile back on. If you don't have the slide out and it gets pushed back into the player, the slide will lock in and you won't be able to snap the smile back onto the front of the slide. After that you can pop the players notches back into the detents. Plug all connectors back into the back of the player. Align the tabs through the slots on the bottom of the unit and slide them back until the four screw holes line up. Put the four bottom screws back in. Put the cover back on allign it so that the two screws that go to the case on each side that were hidden by the fenders. Replace the top two screws and the two counter sunk screws where the video and audio inputs are on the back. Replace the wheels. Each wheel must go back on it's correct side, Line up the tab and the space in the back of the wheel and push the wheel back in on each side. Replace the three screws in the middle of each wheel and put each fake lug nut back into place. Use a small pair of pliers to gently squeeae the tabs of the lug nuts so that they will go in the slots easier. Plug the unit back in, turn on and after you select dvd, then you can press the open/close button for the tray to come out.
No parts were needed, as the one small drive belt that comes off the tray motor had not stretched or broke. Great patience is needed just for the removal and replacement of the back of the case.
