Go to section 5.6 and it will show you the diagram on how to remove the dvd drive from the laptop.


I think he meant reinstall the device driver not the actual device. Doing it to the actual device wont accomplish much but take some time. As for the driver go to this website: Click Here

Then download and run the fix it program there
Once you have run it restart the machine
You may have to do it twice before it works
