defective DVD writer with my new order

I just received my order 3 days ago, but I had found that the DVD writer came with my W500 cannot read any DVD/CDs.


I had tried several different CD/DVDs, including the recovery discs that came with they system, no luck at all.

while at the same time, my desktop, fujitsu laptop have no problem to read those DVD/CDs.


I am pretty sure the writer came with the system is defective. how can I fix it?


before I placed the order, I worried about the keyboard issue, but at the end it turned into DVD writer issue for me.


how can I get a new dvd writer?
