    I should have mentioned that the Part# for this port replicator is 331740-001 and Iwould like to be able to install a DVD drive into one of the 2 expansion slots but don't know what is required. My laptop has no internal optical drive .

How to put an sd card into my computer ?

It depends on your model. Some have a SD card slot on the front panel. This is the same panel for the headphones. If yours does not have an SD card slot you cant add a SD card to you machine.

I have a Lenovo Y650 4185-55U ptop and need instructions on how to open it so I can replace the dvd drive.

Flip pc over. There will be one screw not part of a plate. About an inch in front of the battery and about 4 inches from where you would put in a DVD. Only one screw holds the DVD in. Unscrew it and gently slide the optical drive out. If the optical drive does not move with some gentle prying with finger nails or a plastic tool, you did not loosen the correct screw.

Hp 2700 hard disk is bad . need to recover files and data . please solve

If you have no access then your only option may be sending the drive to a data retrieval service. This is not cheap and not an overnight thing.

If you know a brave local techy who knows his stuff he could swap the control boards inside the drive with the ones from a identical working drive.

Had the same problem with my HP nc4010 .Youcan use a USB stick or card if yoyur PC has the slot for it. Mine had a card slot for SD card so I could install Windows XP . You can also get an external DVD drive which is a better choice in the long run. I bought one of these from a vendor in china off of EBay for cheap to Canada free shipping under $50.00Cdn. Hope this helps
