Question about Computers & Internet
Have cd stuck in Acer L3600 desktop computer. need to know how to remove it without voiding the waranty seal. Thanks
If you look on the door of your cd drive next to the button you push to eject the cd there is a small hole. This is essentially the ememrgency release. Unfold a paper clip and push it straight into the hole. Once it releases you will feel the paperclip pushing down on a button. you will feel and hear the drawer release.

The L3600 doesn't have an emergency hole so you need to disassemble the cover. MAKE SURE IT'S UNPLUGGED FROM THE AC POWER BEFORE GOING FURTHER! I would only suggest this if your warranty has run out. Remove the screw at the back under the warranty label then slide the top cover backwards and remove it. You will see 3 strap type black plastic catches towards the front of the computer, lift each one to unclip the front then lay it forward (it will still be attached by a cable, leave it connected). You should then see a metal catch under the CD/DVD Drive, lift it then slide the CD/DVD player out of it's housing, remove the Ribbon Cable at the back but make sure you know how to reconnect it. Remove the 3 small screws from the top and the two on the side holding the metal cover on top of the Drive then take the cover off, you should now be able to lift out the CD. Do the reverse of the above to reassemble your computer and there you go.
