If there's a small round hole on the front than grab a pin wich is long enough (at least around 5cm shold do it) and fits in it, push it inside till the drive opens.
If there's no hole than you unfortunately need to dismentle the hole drive.

My acer x1700 cd drive wont open.. i can hear it attempt to open. i do not have an emergency bottom or push out hole. please help many thanks


CD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open 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 drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

I placed a cd on my cd holder and the cd fell off inside the processor. How can I get the cd out?


Use paper clip and stick it through a small just outside the cd drive (should be next to the cd button where you press to eject the cd out). Stick paper clip through this small hole until the cd door open and gently take cd disc out. Good luck

Cant get my cd drawer to open i push the button and it wont open try pushing button and pry at the same time and nothing happens have emachine T3508


with your computer power turned off, use a straight mini-kabob pin (or sturdy paper clip) to manually let out the DVD drive tray. There is a little hole under the drive tray door that accepts this kind of tool device. Another option is to massage the door while trying to eject the DVD drive tray. This method requires your computer to be turned on and by selecting the proper drive (E:) from the My Computer in Start Menu, you then "Eject" and can push in on the door and on the corners, enabling the DVD drive tray to open.

Cd jammed in top drive


On almost every CD/DVD drive there is a small hole next to the eject button. Take a fine needle (be careful) and with a cork on the other end to save you from hurting yourself - push the needle into the hole until the cd drawer opens. Do this with the machine swithced off. Then remove the cd.
I hope this helps you.

Well...first lets make sure the drive still can physically open.

There in the picture will show you where the manual eject button is. Use a paperclip and push the button in the hole. Once the drive is open enough for you to pull the tray, go ahead and pull it as far as it will come out. It will stop, and it shouldn't come all they way unattached from the rest of the unit.

Go ahead and take any cd or dvds that was in the drive out and turn your computer back on.

Once into windows, push the regular eject button and the drive should close the door itself. Let it sit for a second or two, and try hitting the eject button again. 9 times out of 10, that usually fixes my drives.

Hope this helps!

Cd-rom/dvd-rom door won't open


Hi!This is not a big problem...All you have do is take a pin, needle or something and just insert it into the small hole near your cd-rom drive..try this repeatedly while pressing the eject button..If it doesn't work you will have to unscrew the two screws on the right of your keyboard..doing this will give you the access to the cd tray and you can remove the cd and put it back together..
