Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

How do I remove the CD rom from my Satellite pro L10. the drive needs to be replaced. I have removed the screw from thr underside that I think hold the drive in place but it still will not move.


Answers :

Not all Laptops are built that way, i.e to remove the screw from the back only and make it come out.
But I will just tell you the 2 situations that I've seen before.
1. Remove the memory card enclosure, and see if there's a screw which can be traced to where the drive is located, and at the same time, try and check other enclosures at the back.
2. There are also some that the screw holding is not even at the back at all. But you can only see it after removing the Keyboard infront of the laptop. So you can also try this one out too.
Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard.
