I know this sounds crazy but an SD card was accidentally inserted into the DVD drive, and now can't get it out, or put any DVD in this drive. Need to uninstall it but concerned about not doing it right.
The power supply also just quit working, and am wondering if a generic replacement will do, or if I should get one from Dell only?
Welcome to the Community.
For instructions on removing or replacing the DVD drive on Studio 1555/15 you can use the link below:
If the power light on the adapter barrel does not come on even after trying different power outlets than you would need replace the AC adapter or power supply. It is recommended to use the Dell AC adapter or power supply.
Studio 1555/15 comes with 65 watt or 90 watt AC adapter.
You can check the link below to get more information on the AC adapter compatible to your system:
