    Hi there

    Actually opening a laptop and removing a DVD is very simple -- same as changing the HDD on a laptop. Just remove the battery (Usually), undo about 8 screws on the back and the DVD will usually slide in / out easily - it will probably have either a SATA connector like a laptop HDD or a small adaptor -- take a picture with your phone camera if there are any other cables - but usually especially on larger laptops removing the DVD is very easy.

    I recommend though if it really is broken get an external USB one - then if you get a new laptop that doesn't have a DVD drive then you can use it when you need one -- they are very cheap often around 35 - 45 USD.

    DVD drives are are quite robust -- try and blow some (dust free) air through it - use one of those photographers "air cans". - there might be a dust spec on the laser lens which causes bad tracking, or use one of those DVD cleaning disks (the ones with a little brush) on it. I've seen a few perfectly good laptop DVD drives thrown away just because people haven't tried to clean them.

    Cheers
