You simply need to purchase an external cd-dvd drive. You can buy one at Walmart for around $25-$30. Then you plug it into the laptop in the USB drive. Then a pop up may appear to install software which should take 2 minutes, and you're ready to go. They are small so its really not much of a hassle. It should fit into your laptop case so you can bring it with you.

you would have to buy an external drive and plug into one of the usb ports, I think that would be the easiest. As far as making one built right into the laptop I have no idea and wouldn't chance doing it myself. Hope this helped.

You can't add an internal DVD drive. You need to purchase an external DVD drive and connect the USB cord that comes with the drive into one of the laptop's USB ports. Laptop will install the drive for you. Once installed, the external DVD drive while connected to laptop will appear under Devices and Drives.

There is no room for you to add dvd drive to this computer however you can add a USB dvd drive externally, I happen to have USB dvd drives so this was never a requirement for me to have a DVD drive in the laptop and throughout the years I hardly ever use any DVD drive except to watch some old home made wedding videos.

Easy, you will need a 32gb minimum USB drive OR a 32gb SD/micro SD card and have it mount to a USB adapter and then plug to your computer.

Once you have the above memory device, go on the search type create recovery disc or just type recovery and you should see the option to create a recovery drive.

Each computer can only create one drive so make sure you keep that backup secure once you created it. Also, don't use the recovery option that came with the window 8 software, it will result in failure to create in midway through, you have to use the HP version of software to create your recovery drive, this is to prevent you from creating more than one recovery drive.

Yes it has a webcam and you need 7 blank dvds to create a restore disk. You can also use a 32gb usb drive. Use an external dvd burner.

Yes; within minutes of starting up this laptop I was able to connect to my wireless network. Note there is a wireless antenna on/off button on the top row of the keyboard (to the right of the mute button). If the button light is orange, the Wi-Fi is off; if the button light is light blue, the Wi-Fi is on.
