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.

Upgrade CD/DVD ROM to CD-RW/DVD ROM

I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

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.

Replacing CD?DVD Rom CD-RW Drive for T-30

I would remove the Drive in the meantime to prevent it from slowing down your system untill you can get a new one. You can try new ( more expensive) or ebay. But make sure the person you get it from has a good rating.

Also, sometimes a improperly burned CD will casue your systme to act iratic when its in the drive. Even after removing it.

If this is the case. Try ejecting the drive from windows by going to my computer> select the drive> right click> select " EJECT" and then close it afterwords.

Also you might try removing the device like you would a USB cable. Laptops often consider the CD drive as an attahced device like a USB Drive, Remove it with windows " safely remove Device" at the bottom left, then power off and physically remove it.

Have you also tryed getting all the updates for the laptop? Once you do all this, Re-install it and see if that doesnt help.

Otherwise, just order a new one or get a new laptop, descent ones are not too expensive and with todays technology, anything baught yesterday will be obsolete quickly, no sense in spending lots of time and money trying to fix something that wont be worth it.

Its all up to you on that. Good luck.

DVD-ROM/CD-RW

Either the drive is maulfunctionig or you have a problem with the drivers/ settings. If it's the drive then I'm not sure it will be worth fixing. Try reinstalling the device by removing it from the device manager and reinstalling with the original drivers. good Luck.
