Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
I need to know how to eject my cd's from my new Dell Laptop Studio 17.
If you are not knowledgeable on this then please let me know
You've tried the touch keys at the top of the keyboard -- those buttons light up when you touch them -- control the video, audio and the far right is the dvd eject button

Okay here is the solution and I know it is going to sound dumb, but this will work. You will need to do the following to get the media control working so you can eject cds:
1. Power down the lap top
2. Remove battery then press hold down power key for 10 seconds
3. Re-install battery and power back up
Supposely, it is due to a electrostatic issues which dell claims. Personally, I think my step 4 is going to reallyr rethink if I want to keep my studio 17.

Is it stuck or just not responding when you press the eject button?
Well , there is a manual way of ejecting the cd tray regardless of whether the laptop is on or not, just take a needle and gently insert it into the fine hole on the tray ( its meant for this purpose) that will release the lock inside and pop the tray out.. you may then hold and and pull it out!!

You need to turn off your computer
take the battery out
hold the power button (with the battery out) for abou 10 seconds
put the battery back in
turn the computer on
the key should not be lit anymore

Thanks Starmike, reinstalling quickset worked for me!
went to dell support site, put in the serial tag of my computer (on label on the back)
Found available downloads, quickset is under applications tab.
Worked first time!

The only way to fix this is issue is to remove two scres in the battery compartment. Remove the fromt media panel. Behind it, the wire needs to be removed (mostly it is crooked if you look at it closely). The removal is tricky. The connector opens up. Don't pull the wire. Open the connector by lifting it towards you. Remove the wire. Reseat it correctly (so it is not crooked). Close the connector. Re-essemble everything. Your Dell is now fixed!. Also solves the standby eject issue!

Just restart the PC. While the PC is logging out, you should press eject button. And you can have the CD get out of the drive.
