Removing DVD-drive on Travelmate 230

\015 I would like to remove the DVD-drive that was originally installed in the Travelmate 230 laptop, and install a DVD-RW drive instead that i got lying. But how do i remove the old drive without pulling the entire laptop apart, as the drive doesnt have one of those ''eject'' sliders under the bottom like the battery eg.\015

Answers :

At the back of the laptop you'll find screws. Search for one that has the symbol of an optical drive icon. This screw should be just above the optical drive. Unscrew it. Now insert a long pin into the pinhole in the drive's bezel (should be close to the eject button). Pull the tray gently beyond it's usual limit. If you had removed the exact screw, the drive will come out easily.

Hope this is helpful. If you need more assistance, comment back
Hi,
Eject the tray and turn the laptop off, close the lid and turn the laptop over.
take note of the positioning of the DVD and look for one screw that will be holding the DVD rom in place, once you have located the screw and removed it the DVD will just slide out of it's compartment and you will be ready to replace it.


Good luck.
