Normally there is a slot and you push it in until it clicks into place.
Then to hold in place there is normally a screw,
that is acessible from the bottom that holds everything together.
Quite posible there is a screw under the keyboard too

Apart from that its a software thing.

Once fixed in place reboot and try use the drive,
if it don't work then update drivers and try again
It should auto recognise,

Let me know of your outcome thanks

I have a hp laptop that i dj with ..every time i open windows media player to burn a disc it says connect a burner and restart ....HELP!!!


The solution to your problem depends on a couple of things:

1. Which operating system are you using (for example, Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista)?

2. Have you connected an external devise (such as an external CD/DVD burner) to the laptop in question previously? If so did it work successfully?

3. Does the laptop have a built in burner, and if so have you ever used it successfully?

Please repost with you original question plus answers to the above the questions and hopefully someone will be able to help you soluve the problem.

Good luck!

My microphone stopped working and its built in


I had thesame problem on a brand-new Dell laptop. The solution is to intall IDT STAC9228 Audio Driver (file R204473.exe), which can be downloaded from Dell web site (http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R204473.EXE). This solved my problem with not having mic when using Skype.

My dvd burner doesn't burn dvds


You need to check that with blank DVD's you are using compatible with your drive.Because the DVD's may work with your extranal drive but not with your builting drive. If this doen't slove the problem I would recommend using a different burning software other than "sonic record now" and "vista o/s Built-in dvd burner".

Downloading pictures


Two ways, 1- burn the pictures to disc using an external, since I'm sure your 27 doesn't have a burner. Standard issue burners are a little after it's time. 2- purchase an IDE to USB laptop hard drive cable. This cable will allow you to connect the 27's hard drive directly to your new computer as a slave or storage device, and will show up in "my computer" as another drive.
