\015\012Power the laptop on and push the eject button then power the laptop off. Flip the laptop overand there will be a screw to hold the drive in, this screw will be close to the center and will be the only screw in a square hole, remove this screw. Now if you followed my directions, you should have the drive out. Pull the tray out as far as it will go then grab the two sides closest to the laptop and gently pull it out. If you are having problems you can stick a flat screw driver in the square hole and push the piece of metel to the side to remove. If the drive you received does not have the metal sticking off of the back then you need to move it over to the new one. Now slide the new drive in the laptop and replace to screw. Then you are done.
I have to agree, its either you have a professional do it, or you can do it too, just have to be extra careful. the link below will give you tons of tips on how to open / clean / replace parts of your laptop. it gives out general ideas, it may not be Model-Specific, but you will have the general idea on how to get things done... good luck buddy.
