How to replace my DVD drive?


well if you are going to buy one, i would go to www.newegg.com and see what they have. I am also assuming that you are comfortable opening your computer. When you get a new DVD drive open up your computer and look how the old one is connected(i would do that before you buy a new drive too) and if your connects the way i think it does it should have a ribbon (bunch of wires attached together in a line) that have a rectangular thing at the end that connects to the back of your drive and also it will have another set of wires that are multicolored that come from your power thing it will have 4 wires that connect to the back of the DVD drive, make sure both the ribbon and the power cables connect correctly to your new DVD drive. if they do great, you now would only have to take out the old drive and put in the old one(they usually attach to the computer case via screws on the side of the drive) once the old is out and the new is in you just plug in the cables(ribbon and power) and it should work.If the cables arent the same see if you can return it for one that would fit correctly. If you have any questions about my explanation ask (i am new to this and not all that great at giving organized instructions)

DVD+RW DRIVE STOPPED WORKING


Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.

If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.

If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.
