Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Hi I have a dell inspiron 1501 and my cd rom will not open I have the flashing light but it will not open at all.
If none of the above solutions work for you, try tapping the F8 key repeatedly upon startup and start the laptop in safe mode and try to eject it that way

Is there a cd in the drive. If so, get a paper clip and insert it in the small hole on the bezel of the drive. it will eject the tray and open. If it constantly does not open, then it may be a logic problem in the drive.
You can also go to My Computer, and right click on the cd drive and select "eject" from the drop down menu.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Try going to the drive, in my computer ** should be named CD/DVD Or D: E: right click and press eject. Alternatively:-
if you look carefully at the dvd drive, it has a small pinhole in the front drawer. push a paper-clip sized piece of metal, or small jewellers screwdriver into the hole, this will force the drawer open.

SOURCE: cd rom not working
Try reseating the CD drive. Remove the battery and make sure the AC adaptor is not connected. Turn the laptop over and locate the locking screw. It will have a little "Pad Lock" symbol next to the screw. Once phillips screw is removed, pry the securing screw tab to push the drive from the chassis with a screwdriver. Re-insert the CD drive and fasten the screw back into the bottom of the laptop.
If you still have an issue with the CD drive, please feel free to contact me for futher diagnosis.
