I cannot find any service manuals for your notebook.
My recommendation is to remove the drive, get the part number from it (normally found on a sticker with a 6 digit dash 3 digit part number (123456-001) and search by the part number on the internet, or specifically on eBay.
Then you'll have a no muss, no fuss, direct swap.
You may also be able to replace it by inputting the part number in the space provided at the link below to the HP Parts Store.

Disappearing CD/DVD drives seems to be way too common the last couple of years. You 'might' find that it actually reappears if you start the laptop up once without it, shut down, reinstall it and start up again.
