Remove the optical drive - - - part number should be underneath it perhaps.
I was thinking there would be a part listing somewhere to avoid compatibility issues. I am concerned that if I remove the optical drive it may cause my computer to be inoperable without the drive or until I have a compatible drive installed. I want to try to locate a refurbished optical drive before I tear my computer down.
New Egg advertises refurbished optical drives, but they are listed by part members... so I need alittle help.
