there is a single screw on the bottom of the laptop hidden by a little rubber cover. pry out the rubber cover and unscrew one small philips head screw, then the unit slides out and you can buy a new one to replace it.
All CDs & DVDs have a tiny hole on the drive tray.
Get a paper clip, straighten the paper clip and insert it into this hole and push the paper clip in gently, the tray will release and pop out, then you can remove your disc.
You can do this without the laptop being powered up or powered down.
I have not worked on your model before but have done many laptops.
be sure the part you have is correct.
get some small screwdrivers,
as you disassemble it, lay the screw around it where they came out.
some times case screw are hidden under stickers on the bottom. (nice hu?)
be VERY careful with the data/ribbon cable (probably dark gold in color)
Depending on the memory you already have you can install upto a maximum of 1GB 266MHZ DDR, and cannot see any reason for not being able to upgrade your hardrive for a bigger one, but be aware that the Operating system backup will probably be on a seperate partition on your current hardrive, unless you got an installation cd with your laptop.
