I am changing the DVD drive in an ASUS X55U- FS22 -CB after having problems taking the broken one out. Can anyone help?

    You need to remove the keyboard, and then undo the retaining screw at the top. There's an excellent video on YouTube ( which shows this clearly (DVD removal at 4:10). The video is in Russian, but hey, it's a video and it's clear enough!
