Having problems with your Dell Latitude C640 Notebook ?

Hi, can anyone help,the small cd holding spigot in the centre of my laptop cdrom drive has fallen to pieces is there anyone with any idea where i can get the spare part to replace it.


Answers :

Hi there,
you will have to either seek ebay and be the lucky guy or buy a whole new or used drive for a dell latitude, it should be no more than 30 bucks for the used version.
dell does not give away these parts, so
try googling used laptop parts and by chance you may find sites like this:

http://www.laptopking.com/

good luck in finding!
Try to find a junk drive somewhere...old computer, used parts sale, etc...and remove the plastic piece from the old drive...carefully...and install it on your drive. Yes, it would be easier to buy a new one, but you can't. Just not sold at the retail level. This part is the same on virtually all cd and dvd drives so you don't have to look for a specific drive. Even a drive from a desktop will have the correct plastic piece.
