@triviaace , welcome to the Community.

 

Here are the components in your computer on HP PartSurfer: https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=N3G98AV

 

If you look at the second section titled "Drive" there is a list of DVD drives.  Some of them can be order directly from HP by selecting the box next to "Add to Cart".  The others you can use the part # to search for them online.  Your best option will most likely be ebay.

 

Another option would be an external USB DVD/CD drive.  I have used one for years.  I use it to install some games.

 

Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

The drive in my computer is a blu ray writable 12.7 with an odd footprint.  I tried to attach a photo of it but was unable to do so.
