View Full Version : CD-ROM stopped functioning on my Satellite Pro 4200

I own an old Satellite 4200. After years and years of having dutifully obeyed all my demands, my CD-ROM stopped functioning yesterday. I tried to take a look if I can replace it all by myself, but I didn't even suceed in getting the broken CD-ROM out of the notebook.
Does anyone have a clue how I can get the drive out of the notebook?

Thanks in advance,

The Satellite Pro 4200 is not know to me but usually on most notebooks the drive is fixed with a screw at the bottom of the unit. If you will not found any screws so I assume it must be placed under the keyboard.
But if you have no much experience in computers I would recommend contacting the Toshiba service in your country. He can give you some details how to replace the drive.

Furthermore I the drive is dead you will need a new one. Please note that not all drives are compatible with every notebook. In this case you can order a supported and compatible one also from the Toshiba service partner in your country.

Good luck
