I'm buying a used Compaq laptop, and the CD drive is broken. Do I need to buy a specific brand/type of internal CD drive or will any one work?

You will need to get the one that suits this model. Best thing to do "if you can" is get the model/part number of the faulty CD drive and do a google search for it. You will find alot of spares on Ebay so you can search there for the part number. As long as the part number is correct, dont worry if they are advertising it for another laptop. Last thing make sure that you get the colour to match your laptop as they can come in different colours (black,grey, etc)

My Laptop LCD is broken. How much will it cost me for a repair?

Typically, $40 to $100 for a used or new optical drive.
Add $50 to $75 for one hour for a qualified technician to disassemble your computer, swap the drive, reassemble, and test.

It might be cheaper to buy an external USB-connected CD/DVD drive.

This model laptop is installed with an IDE 40Gb hard drive.
You can use a faster hard drive but the BIOS limits the maximum size hard drive you can install.
Check the specification of this laptop for the maximum size hard drive you can install.

CD Drive is not reading disks

It will cost about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer to replace your "dead" (broken laser) optical device.

Some keys in the keyboard not working

Hello
The easist way and cheapest is to buy a exernal keyboard for your laptop.The keyboard is broken and you cant repair it, to buy a new laptop keyboard it very expensive.

The cd driver is also very expensive to buy, so I suggest that you buy a external one with dvd and everything.

Also check if the "CD" that the drive doesent read is DVD media.? CD drivers cant read DVD media, then you need to have a DVD driver.

Cd/dvd rom not reading

It's likely a laser alignment problem inwhich you will need to replace the hardware. However, I had a similar problem once with a notebook and found out that a tiny bread crumb was near the spindal making the cd in the drive off balance. Check liberally for any debris. Good luck!

NEED CD/DVD INTERNAL DRIVE

You can buy any drive. go for Samsung \ LG. You can get used drives but now a days they dont cost much so its better to go for a new one. Get it from bestbuy or any local tech shop. Make sure while purchasing you mention drive for notebook.

Thanks

Laptop CD/DVD Drive

I think buying a USB DVD drive is a very sensible idea as internal drives on laptops can be a pain to remove and fit and they are more prone to failure than their desktop brothers because of their flimsy construction.

Spindle for cd drive broken

I'd suggest you change the drive,, DVD DRIVES FOR LAPTOPS are usually standered parts Take the drive out and buy one and replace it. I dont think you laptop might require a special drive Laptop usually carry standered drives meaning any one should work.
