While the PC is on eject the DVD tray and turn off the computer, underneath the laptop you should find a screw which is holding it in place, when you find the correct screw and unscrewed it pull gently on the DVD and it should slide out, put your new one in and replace the screw, job done :)

I have removed the ram, hard drive and cd rom but it does not work hp nx6000

If after removing those, it still doesn't POST, then there is a motherboard fault. Consult an authorised dealer.

What is the cost of "dell inspiron 1525" laptop lcd

This one isn't too bad. The lcd for this labtop can be found on for 69.99 to 150.00.
its pretty inexpensive. The hard part will be putting the lcd in. If you have not taken apart electronics before it can be pretty hard to do. You have to basicley remove the keyboard, remove the screws that hold the LCD on, then you have to remove the lcd rails. and then re-install the components. If it is just the blacklight that has gone out this can be easier or harder and i usually recommend replacing the whole lcd if its that inexpensive. I hope this helps out

P.S. just search on ebay for "Dell Inspiron 1525 lcd"

My dell inspiron 9300 reads and plays DVDs, but does not detect any other type of CD in the CD/DVD drive (music, data, etc.). i've had a problem before where it didn't read CDs or DVDs and it turned out to...

Go to the webpage, enter the service tag number, located on a label on the bottom of the laptop, and download the latest BIOS update and drivers for the CD/DVD drive. You can verify the drive type in Device Manager. Once you have downloaded the files, upgrade the BIOS, this will restart the system. Next, remove the CD\DVD in Device Manager and then install the new driver for the drive. When the driver has been installed, Open Device Manager and right click on My Computer at the top of the list and left click on Scan for changes. The drive will be detected adn installed with the new driver and the registry will be updated.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works for you.
