CD?DVD ROM replacement fpr hp Pavillion 9700 Mon Oct 4, 2010 9:40:18 PM#135500Perm Link
I have to replace the cd rom onmy old HP pavillion 9700. I've been having major issues lately where the laptop won't start all the LED lights up on the front face then shuts off and never the screen shows anything just black with the backlite !! Sometimes for hours I let the laptop on and it does it's things for hours and just out of the blue the hing kicks in but very very slow. I taught at first it could of been the HD but I just got a brand new HD and it's for sure the cd rom. The thing won't spins and when it does it's not for long. 3rd guess would be the screen but it still works it just take hours sometimes.
So now I am stuck with a blank brand new HD I have the install disck but no ways of installing the OS so I need to remove that cd rom for the pavillion Anybody here found a step by step explanation on how to remove it?
When I power it on the blue LEDs on the front lights up then sometimes I hear a click then it resets itself. It can goes on and on for hours. Eventually it would boot up but now there's a new HD in it (I taught it was the HD that was the culprit) so now there's a new drive but can't install any OS on it!!!!
