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?

Need to replace DVD+/-R/W/RAM/Label Flash drive. How do I do this?


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the power-cord.
Remove the side-covers.

Disconnect the "data" and the "power" cables from the back of the drive.

Look for screws on both sides of the DVD drive.
If there are any, unscrew them, and the DVD drive will slide out the front of the front face-plate.

If there are no screws, remove the front face-plate from the computer.
Then, squeeze the "drive-rails" on the sides of the DVD drive, to "unlock" it, and gently pull the drive out.

Reverse the wholel process to install the new DVD-drive.

I want to upgrade the RAM, and when I opened the desktop the dvd is positioned over the memory slots. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE THE DVD TO SWOP OUT THE RAM


see if there the motherboard is secured onto a rack that can slide out of the casing. most newer computers have this feature. if not, you will have to unscrew the dvd drive from the casing to get to memory slots. unplug the drive, find the mounting screws, and remove the drive. remember to plug everything back up (power, interface cable, digital cable if present).

good luck.

Removing/replacing dvd rom drive


Hi Jerry
I have written down steps on how to remove the DVD-Rom drive for you.
Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked.
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized. I keep them in small cups separated easier to find and don’t get lost.
1. Remove the laptop battery
2. Carefully lift off the securing strip at the top of the keyboard.
3. Remove the keyboard securing strip.
4. Remove all screws securing the laptop keyboard.
5. Disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board. Lift the edges of the connector first and then carefully disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove screws securing the power switch board.
7. Disconnect the USB cable from the system board \motherboard
8. Lift off the power switch board.
9. Remove all screw from the support plate.
10. Remove the DVD drive securing screw.
11. Slide the DVD drive to the right and remove it.
12. Slide in the new DVD drive and follow this backwards.

Hope this helps it is not hard just have to take time an becareful when removing the securing strip at the top of the keyboard to get to screws.

Any questions I will be glad to help answer for you.
