    Its a zd7140. Im going to see if I can print out some instrustions from that link you sent me. Thank you - I greatly appreciate the help!

    I tried taking some screws out last night but I stopped before I messed anything up.

    I also need a new lcd screen for this model if anyone knows where to get it. The cheapest I found so far is $850 !!!

    Isn't there a release button on the bottom. I thought the DVD and CD drives were made to interchange quickly with no tools. On my DELL Latitude you just push a slider button and it releases the drive so you can swap it out easily.
