Ok I work as a laptop technician and I would say to do this yourself it is very easy to do.

Power 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.

Dell D600 cd rom replacement instructions


There should be a screw on the bottom holding the cd rom in place. Unscrew the screw and then with one end of a paper clip put it in the small hole on the front of the cd rom and the door should open. Now go ahead and pull the cd-rom out.

Now you can go ahead and put the new cd-rom in place and put the screw in and then turn on the laptop and let it boot up into windows and windows might redetect it. Go into my computer and you should see your cd-rom in there.

Cd rom not recognizable, but came with laptop?


it sounds like you have a bad cd-rom. before replacing, you might want to try deleting the cd-rom drivers from the system manager and see if that helps.

Is it a bad mb ?


If the HDD is not recognized in the BIOS, windows will not be able to install on that drive. Did you move the HDD interposer from the old drive to the new one? (t is a small adapter that plugs on to the pins of the drive.) If you did, reinstall the interposer on the old drive, ensure it still works. If neither drive functions, then you may have a bad motherboard.

0x0000007B normally occurs when you try to install an older version of WIndows XP on a system with a newer HDD controller and the XP CD doesn't have the correct driver for the HDD controller. So if you get an error like this after getting the HDD to be recognized by the bios, then you may need the HDD controller driver too.

Hangs up on boot


It is trying to boot from a network. You need to get it to boot from the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), there's no other way of installing the os, unless you can get another identical machine to load it with. If it doesn't recognize the optical in the boot menu, then you may have been more than a hard drive crash.

QSI CDRW/DVD SBW242C not reading disks


the system you have is an old system and DELL doesn't manufacture it any more.
the thing is that INSPIRON 1000 is a system in which you cannot take out anything as its bit complicated.
as its turning hot wot you can do is use a air compressed can and try cleaning areas near vents
if it doesn't fixes the problem try logging on to
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen
punchin your system's service tag
you will get list of drivers you have to download and install BIOS from that list
when you run that BIOS update make sure that the battery is in and ac adapter is plugged in
and still if it doesn't fix the problem get the system board,fan and heatsink assembly replaced and offcourse cd drive too.
if you need to get pricing info regarding repairs you can call 1-800-624-9896(United States Toll Free number for Dell Technical support)
