Second step I would suggest is
Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.

What is the brand make and model of the laptop and I will see if I can find the instructions for. Usually it is one or two screws and then the drive slips out. You then just reinsert it firmly and put the screws back in. Takes just a couple of minutes at the most.

There is one other option but you will need to find another system like yours you can use to test the drive in.
