Although the CD drive is partially exposed to outside of the laptop, the laptop still needs to be opened up for replacement. Replacing the CD drive is a good solution if normally-working CD's aren't working properly for any reason.

    Remove the leftmost screw marked with blue circle. Push the drive out. You're done. Rest of this "guide" is just making you do incredible amount of work for no reason whatsoever. The DVD drive is attached LITERALLY with one screw, and that is the screw under the leftmost blue circle.

16-step guide about an action that can be completed in 3 steps.. REALLY? Why do you make people do SO MANY steps for no reason whatsoever? You REALLY don't need to take apart the whole laptop JUST to remove the optical drive.

THIS FIXIT GUIDE IS COMPLETELY WRONG.

As Antti Vahtera said, you DO NOT have to disassemble the laptop to remove the CD/DVD. Here are the steps required:

1. Open DVD Tray by pressing button (if switched on) or by pushing a paperclip in the small hole next to button).

2. Turn laptop upside down and open the Memory Cover (one Phillips head screw, then lift off the cover).

3. Remove ONE keybpard screw (Torx or Flat screwdriver) - it’s in the corner of the memory opening, same side as DVD drive.

4. Slide the DVD Drive out by pulling (very little force required). FINISHED !!!!
