How do you exchange a tsst cd rw/dvd rom for a dvd rw internally


Answers :

Unplug all the cables from the computer to make it easier to get to it\015\012
using just screwdriver, remove the exterior cover........then locate the drive. It should be towards the top front......take a look at the IDE(flat) cable and any others that you may have plugged into there. If there are two then one is for your sound card, and the other one should be clear on the tip for power............unscrew the drive from the bay after you have disconnected the wires and cables........the drive is ready to be removed when it is laying loosely in the bay. Now push the drive to the front and it should come out from the side you put your disk in......slide the other one in and connect it back with ALL the wires and cables from before......if no place is available for the audio cable, if you had one, dont worry, it sound will still process through your sound card. \015\012
