How to change the dvd rom in a sony vaio vgn-rb42g


Answers :

I would advise you not to start meddling with hardware if you're not skillful at this. However, if you do have some knowledge, you can open the back of the cover of your computer, and then identify the cables connected to your old DVD/CD ROM. carefully unplug these (when computer turned off) and connect the cables exactly the same way to your new drive. it should go to the same exact place as the old one does.
then see if the windows identified your hardware.
