Hi, A quick search on Google showed plenty of sellers for that model drive. Many of them for Dell. Evidently it is a common drive. What You will have to do is move any mounting hardware to the new drive and change the plastic plate that holds the button you press to open the drive so that it is a nice cosmetic look in the laptop.


They seem to be selling Used at around $15.  As a 4 year old drive You may have trouble finding a new one.


Good Luck
