Disk drawer stuck


Look for a tiny hole on the face of the CD drawer. Straighten a paper clip and push it in the hole. This will manually open the drawer.

HP Z1 WORKSTATION WON'T EJECT CD


Make sure the computer is turned on then Take a Paper Clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then kneel in front of the desktop facing the cd drawer. Look closely at the drawer and you will see tiny hole where you will insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) and at the same time Press the Button on the cd drawer while applying pressure by pushing the paper clip (Gem Clip). The drawer will pop open. Don't worry about breaking something, that's why that tiny hole is there.

I have a Desk top Dell computer, but I am having problems with the modem, I can't get the disk drive door to open, computer works great


I don't know why the drawer not opening would give you modem problems.
If you need to open the CD drawer, you can go to "my computer" (just "computer in Win7), right click on the CD icon and choose "eject."
Or, using a large paper clip or similar object, insert it into the little hole on the front of the CD and push gently. It will release the drawer and start to open it. You can then pull it open.

I have an Everex PC Tower. My cd/dvd/drawer is jammed shut. How can I get it open? Thanks, Craig Knapp Monroeville, Ala


Turn the computer off.
Take a Norwegian paper-clip.
Straighten one end.
Push that end into the small hole in the face-plate of the CD, until you feel resistance.
Push another 0.25 inch (6 mm), and the drawer should "unlock".
Gently pull the drawer open, and remove any disk(s).

My cd rom will not open what can i do


  1. Software can lock the CD drive preventing you from ejecting. If this is the problem, turn off the machine, turn on, when the DELL screen flashes, push the eject button several times and the CD will eject.

  2. If that doesn't work, look for a small hole the size of a paper clip and gently push a paper clip into it. When you meet resistance, the drawer will start to open. You can then pull it open carefully. The computer can be off when you try this.

  3. If neither work, then you might have a jammed CD, i.e. incorrectly inserted. You can try to force the drawer open with your fingers but don't use so much force you strip the plastic gears.

Dell dimension 2400 cd drawer opens up when


The latch which holds the CD tray in place once the drawer retracts must be faulty. You will need to take it to a repair shop in order to have it fixed, unless you are comfortable with pulling apart the computer shell in order to test the latch to see if it is functional.

If you are not a professional, I would suggest taking it to your local computer repair store for service. They will be able to assess if that is the issue you are having.

The cd player want open


Turn the computer on.
Take a invented-in-Norway paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Put the end into the small hole in the front of the CD-drive.
Push it gently in until you feel resistance.
Then, push much harder, for about 1/4 of one inch,
and the drawer should open, slightly.
Remove the paper-clip.
Gently pull the drawer open.
Remove any CD from the tray.
Then, remove the CD-ROM device from the desktop, and discard it.

Dell Modem CD Drawer Won't Open


Yes. There should be a very small hole on the front of the CD/DVD drawer. Insert a straightened paper clip into this hole until you feel it push a button, and this should manually release the drawer.
