Hi,

Yes you certainly can swap out the combo drive for DVD/RW. Just make sure you purchase one that is similar to yours and remember to keep the front face of yours just in case you need it.

How do I remove write protection from a DVD-RW?


Your M35X-S1143 model - assuming it still has the stock drive - has an DVD / CD-RW optical drive - i.e. it will write only to CD's but not DVD's. If you try to burn a DVD, it'll tell you that the disc is write protected (when in fact, the drive doesn't even know how to write to a DVD disc.); if you go ahead and burn a CD, you will not encounter the write protection warnings.

If you are getting display in an external monitor, it means Laptop is working fine except LCD. Better to replace the LCD. It will not coat you much. Contact Service center or Computer accessories dealer, for used LCD, they used to have from old PC.

My toshiba m35x-s149 does not have a hard drive but has the little thing with the holes in it how do you install one?


http://wize.com/pc-laptops/p9910-toshiba-satellite-m35x-s149-psa72u00t00u-pc-laptop
By the reviews I see,not the best choice for a dependable machine...that said,it should have at least a 60GB HD,so I don't know what you mean by NO HD? http://www0.dealtime.co.uk/xPF-Toshiba_Satellite_M35X_S149_P1_50GHZ If it's missing,it easy to install one,but if you are not sure of your mech knowledge,bring it to a shop,maybe $20.00 to install.

Keyboard replacement for toshiba m35x S149


Above the keyboard - between the keyboard and the screen there is a plastic piece that if you take a small screw driver you can pry off just above the keyboard or at the hinges. Be very careful not to scratch. If you are worried about scratching ifixit.com sells a tool called a spudgner that is soft plastic. This is what the pro's use. Once you have that plastic off you can simply unscrew the keyboard.

Be carefull when lifting the keyboard off. It is attached with a thin ribbon. the ribbon is held in with a clip. gently pull on the clip until it release the ribbon. Once you have the old keyboard off simply push the ribbon in the clip and force the clips back down. Then just reverse the previous steps.

Good luck
