Having problems with your Dell Studio 17 Laptop ?

I want to replace my Slot loading DVD Writer from my Dell Studio Laptop and want to replace it by Slot loading Blu ray rom


Answers :

Not entirely true...you can change it but you will have to completely disassemble the laptop to do it. The best I recall, on a Studio, the drive is located underneath the motherboard. Once you have access to the drive, it is a drop in replacement. If you are not completely confident you can accomplish this and reassemble the notebook, you probably should not try it. Both types of drive plug into the IDE bus and have the same connector so I assume the previous poster is referring to the extent of disassembly by 'some internal changes'. Also, some of Dell's models use an interposer which must be removed from the old drive and transfered to the new. If you have never cracked open a laptop, this is not the project to start.

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem.
