Question about Computers & Internet

My CD is stuck in my Toshiba Satellite A505D laptop slot, with no hole near the Eject button.

I tried right-clicking my CD drive and clicking on Properties and clicking on the eject disc, but nothing happens. I even tried pressing on the eject button to the right side of my laptop, but nothing happens either. I need to remove the CD ASAP..

Look on the cover on the tray near the eject button. Should be a tiny hole.
Get something like a straightened out paperclip and insert it in to the hole and push firmly but carefuly. It's an emergency eject for a stuck tray.

SOURCE: How to tweek a toshiba satellite A505D S6968

Only way is through the power settings in the control panel.

A few handy tricks are:

disable the wireless antenna when you are not using it (the device uses power while it continuously scans for networks)

dim the monitor as much as you can

remove cd's from the drive when you are not using it,

remove any SD cards or USB thumb drives when not in use

Hope this helps. Aside from all of this I recommend picking up a backup battery that can be swaped when your current one goes dead. In essence it doubles your use time.

DVD will not eject on my toshiba laptop



Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

if there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a staightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive

hope this helps

My PC won't allow me to right click to choose the eject option for a CD. I want to know if there is a way to remove the CD manually.


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.

Thanks,

Satellite p305d-s8828 cd won't eject


Use a pin and poke the small hole near the eject button. This will eject the tray even if the laptop is switched off. Try cleaning the tray. Do not touch the lens, or you will render it useless. Try carefully blowing the interiors to remove the dust. Now turn on the PC and try again.

My toshiba computer optical disk drive wont open but it keeps flashing i dont know what to do! help me please


Hi there.
There are a couple of ways to open the CD/DVD tray.
Firstly you can right click on the CD/DVD icon in my computer/computer and select eject from the sub menu, or if you look very close at the CD/DVD drive near the eject button for a very small hole, if you see one get a paperclip, straighten it out and push one end in the hole until the tray ejects.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Cd stuck in drive


if the drive doesn't have a tray, try holding down the eject button. I think you would have to take the drive out from the laptop and possibly take the drive apart to get it unstuck.

Note that it may void your warranty if you have warranty on it, if you do have warranty on the computer it would be better to contact dell directly. They might replace the drive if its faulty.

also in windows you can try right click on the cd /dvd drive in my computer and select eject.

Cd stuck inside laptop


There is a small hole, usually near the eject button. Unbend a paper clip and carefully push the paper clip into the hole, try to keep it straight. drive should pop right out.
