Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

CDdvd drive is not workin' so I have to replace it.

\015 Is there any place on the net where I can view a video on how to replace a CD/DVD ROM DRIVE. mY tOSHIBA p105-s6197; i I accidentally tripped on the cord as I was going from my desktop and my laptop and it jarred the disk drive loose. Now it will not work; and it has gotten worse.... Now as it boots-up it will just go into a memory-dump. Error message says it is probably hardware , and I think it is. I just need to know how to dismantle the laptop and remove the old disk drive and replace it. ty\015
