Replacing dvd/cd-rom drive on gateway laptop

\015 Does anyone know how to replace the existing cd drive with a cd/dvd rom drive on a gateway laptop?\015\012My laptop fell a few days ago, and the LabelFlash DVD player will not recognize any cd/dvds in the player. It flashes on and off and acts like it wants to read, but can't quite get there. I was going to pull it out and reinsert it to see if that made a difference, like the plug might have been jarred loose. I don't really know how to get this dvd out without breaking anything. I cannot see a release anywhere. Can you help? Thanks Rich\015

Answers :

Without knowing your specific laptop, look underneath about 5 inches from the edge where the drives slides in. You should see a screw there but not holding a panel.
\015\012Remove that one screw, pop the drive open and give it a gentle pull, it should just slide out.
\015\012Most laptop drives are the same with the exception of the faceplate and the bracket (surround) that is attached to the bare drive.
\015\012This is removable and can be transferred to another drive. Careful not to lose any of those tiny screws =)
