Re: want to buy ncr 7401external cd rom drive
That is probably because I don't think anybody makes them anymore BUT you are not out of luck. The reason nobody makes them is because they all make external DVDs now - and the DVDs will read and write CDs. Hopefully you have USB ports because that is the standard way they cnnect now.

Turn the laptop over, on the bottom you will find a screw about 5-6 inches in from the cd-rom drive. The screw will have a little symbol of a CD next to it. If you remove this screw the cd-rom drive should slide right out. Be sure to do this with the laptop turned off, unplugged and with the battery removed.

bcollier696, You did not state how many hours of use this small screen monitor has on it!! You may need to replace the CRT if it has been in use for a long time. Can you approximate the total "ON" time of said unit? Is it >10k hrs. Multiply hrs/day x 300 days x yrs of use. If u come up with 15k hrs or more replace the unit with an LCD if possible.
