    I have Dell inspiron 15 3542 and I want to replace DVD rom with SSD (or just put HDD in it and SSD in HDD place).

    So I want to know what do I need in order to replace it. Can you post like links or just explain it for me.

    Dell Inspiron 3542 Laptop (support site)
    Make use of the "Manuals - Inspiron 15 3542 Owner's Manual" link.

    That model laptop supports a SATA 2.5" hard drive and a SATA 9.5mm disc drive.
    I don't believe you can use the disc drive bay for a hard drive, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
