Lightly cleaning them with fine sandpaper and/or electronic switch cleaner, solves the problem! However, you don't say how to remove the DVD drive for inspection or mention disassembling the laptop down to the motherboard. Is that coming? I assume that releasing the single screw deep in the hole near the DVD will allow it to be removed. Yes? Does one have to have that irritating torx 8 screw driver, which I don't have?
