If when you push the button its led flash but not opening, turn off your computer and open its door by a needle enter and push it in the ole in center of its panel under the door. whon the door open a little use your hand and open it. if the this not solve the problem there is a hardware problem :( But if the drive dosent work at all (even the led light) maybe it's the power, then open th case left door and check th power cable... I hope this helps...

It could be "jammed".
Straighten one Norwegian paper-clip.
Put one end into the very-small hole in the face-plate of the optical drive, and firmly push it about 1 centimeter. This should "unlock" the drawer, and you can either push the 'open/close' button, or just gently pull the drawer to its fully-open position.

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.

My cd drive door is not opening of dell laptop


If the button doesn't work then you will need to replace the drive. Type the model number on the bottom and search ebay for a replacement. I'd say its a 2 out of 10 for difficulty to replace. For the time being you can use a paper clip and push it in the tiny hole by the button to open the drive manually.
Comment if you need more assistance.

Doesn't open when the button is pushed.


Push it harder. Then try to take your finger nail and underneath the laptop pull on it as you push the button. Restart your computer. Go to your computer and right click the icon on the cd/dvd drive and select eject. I have a Dell and sometimes the button has to be pushed in hard. I hope some of these suggestions help you out and thanks for using FixYa.

My cd will not eject from my computer


On the top right of the CD drive, you will see a very small hole. Take the end of a paper clip and push it into the hole. That will manually eject the CD by opening the drive.

My dvd is stuck in the CD Rom Drive thing


if the computer is powered off and the power chord deconnected, you can use a fine pin to 'poke' in the small hole in the front panel of the CD/DVD drive. this is the backup mechanism for when the regular opening mechanism fails. this way you can retrieve the disk that's blocked inside. after this you can try if it works as before again, but the possibility exists that you will have to replace the whole drive...

My CD ROM is not opening


Do this with your computer OFF.

Get a Paper clip of U shape. Straighten it or unfold it to make it a straight wire. Now there's is a small pinhole in the front of your CD Drive. Put this wire in that hole and push it a little. The CD Drive door will become free. Pull it with your nails or with the help of  this wire.

Cd door keeps onpening and closing


Hello,

When this happens it is usually one thing, but could be two.

The most common reason is that the button you use to open and close is stuck in the IN position. Turn the PC off with the drive door held open. Using a paperclip try to get behind the push button and press it outwards.

Second most common problem, the switch the button activates is worn and has failed in the depressed position.

Fortunately, replacement CDROM/DVDROM are rather inexpensive, but you would need a technically savy friend or relative to help you or you can ask your friendly neighborhood computer guru to help. Or, lastly, you can take this into a shop for a replacement as the newer drive will be better and faster than what you have now.

As always, if you have any need for clarification or further questions please do not hesitate to comment back to me.


Regards,
Worldvet
