Check the service manual or google it. | Report abuse hang-the-9 Laptop Expert November 22, 2010 4:40:15 PM There is not much "fixing" that can be done, the opening issue is nto too bad, but if you can't read it, new drive time. I don't suggest Dell though as a source, check ebay first. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Laptops & Notebooks>How to fix a dvd drive on a laptop> Related ressources: ForumHow to fix dvd drive in laptop ForumHow to fix dvd drive in laptop ForumHow to fix cd dvd drive on laptop ForumHow to fix cd dvd drive on laptop ForumHow to fix my cd and dvd writer on my laptop ForumHow do i fix my dvd drive ForumHow to fix missing dvd drive in bios ForumHow to fix all CD/ DVD drive issues.
