Re: Dell XPS m1330 Loud CD/DVD Drive Problem
try to look for a very tiny hole near the cover of your cd/dvdrom drive. if you locate this one, you can use a thin wire (straigthened paper clip will do) and push the wire through the hole until you fill some resistance. at this point, your cd/dvdrom drive cover should dislodge and you can eventually open it and get your stuck cd.

There are two ways toopen the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work. Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject. If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by - Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc. If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD driveis faulty and needs replacing.
The DVD drive itself has a small horizontal 'eject' button that you can press to eject the disc. If the button fails the disc is stuck however the DVD drive will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter.
Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc
drive mechanism releases and opens.
When it's booting, try to access the setup, aka BIOS. See if you can set CD/DVD as a booting option. As the top BOOT device. Then see if you can boot your installation CD. You may be able to format your drive during the installation - if the hard drive hasn't failed?
