Laptop DVD Drive problem; need geek/nerd
So my dvd/cdr drive on my laptop was not working right; so i found out that that metal/gold ribbon thing that attaches the dvd drive to the computer had a long crack in it. What happened was that when the dvd drive slides out..that ribbon kind of hangs a bit underneat the bottom and apaprently when i slid the dvd drive back into the computer, it got caught a bit between the computer and dvd drive, got pinched and put a crack in it.
Question: What is that ribbbon called? And is it something i can replace easily or is it gonna be computer specific?
