HOW DO I OPEN THE CD DRIVE


Hello. The stuck cd drive door. Bin there before. Use a paper clip, bend out one of the arms of the paper clip. Look for a tinny sized pin hole on the cd drive door. Use the paper clip as a push key. Put the paper clip leg in to the hole, lightly push in and pull the cd drive door lightly toward you. Then you can take out the cd and push to closed the door. Then you can use the computer as before. But remember to keep the paper clip as your emergency key. Good Luck.

If there's a small hole in the front of the door anywhere, push a paperclip in there to release the door.

Not sure what "RAM is accessing it" means?

First to emergency eject, there should be a tiny pinhole in the front of the drive door. Straighten out a paperclip and push it firmly in the hole and the drive will open.

2 likely problems. One is that your laser LED has burned out, in which the drive is pretty much useless, other than that:

If you carefully dismantle the drive:
(you'll need to carefully push the open CD tray up and out to remove it from its cogs, then undo the screws and take the case apart, finally remove the metal shield that covers the rails and the laser head).

You'll see the laser head which rides back and forth on two metal rails. Sometimes it get stuck on the rails and cant move back and forth anymore. This results in a disk that still spins up and a computer that sees the drive, but no data read. If this is the case it is simple to push the laser head along the rails to free it up, grease the rails with a little silicone lubricant and reassemble the drive.

Optical drives are so cheap nowadays though, might just be worth getting a new one. At least you know how to recover stuck CDs now!

I cant get my lap 2003 laptop to connect to the wireless inter-net and the cd/dvd drive door will not open


Check if your wi-fi is enabled. if it is, then it should have a remark that WIRELESS NETWORK is available and have a link to CONNECT. then you will be prompted for a password if connection is encrypted.

Your cd/dvd door might have stuck up for long time of not using it. Gently push it while pressing the eject button. It should eject manually.

Regards!

First, you'll need a paperclip. Unfold it so there is 1 to 2 inches that is straight.

Now, look closely at your drive door. There should be a very small pinhole either above or below it.

Insert the paperclip. There is a very small gear that when rotated, will manually open the drive door.

Retract and reinsert the paper clip as many times as it takes to eject the drive enough so you can hold onto it.
Pull Out the CD or DVD Drive.

Now slowly pull the drive out until it is fully retracted. Remove your stuck CD or DVD, and slowly push the drive bay back until the door is closed.

My dvd cant eject


You need to provide more information.

A CD-ROM/DVD drive only needs power to eject a disc. It does not care if the drivers are installed, for that function, it only needs power.

If this is a new drive it might be a bad one. If this is a drive you have used before, it might have gone bad.

If you have a Disc stuck in the drive, you can always use a paper clip to preform a manual eject. Just unbend a paper clip, and stick it in the pin size hole on the front of the drive. Keep pushing until the drive door opens.

If this is new drive, make sure it is connected correctly.
