Disc got stuck in a Lenovo H320
1) Unplug the computer from power.
2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out
(Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer.
Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.
IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.
3) Facing the front of the computer the LEFT Side Panel removes.
At the rear of the computer, and on the back edge of the Side Panel, are three Philips head screws to remove.
One towards the Top, one towards the Bottom. Along that edge. There is another screw on the bottom, below the screw on the edge, and towards the middle somewhat.
Use the fingergrip molded out of the back of the Side Panel, and pull the Side Panel towards the back of the computer, then lift off.
4) Remove the Front Panel. (Proper speak for Lenovo = Front Bezel)
Once the Side Panel is removed there are three tabs on the Front Bezel to depress.
These look like flat plastic 'fingers' with a flat hooked end. They are molded out of the plastic of the Front Bezel. They go through slots in the metal framework of the computer case.
Ease the Top plastic tab towards the OUTSIDE, and ease the Front Bezel out a little, at the top.
Now go to the middle plastic tab, and ease it to the outside.
When the bottom plastic tab is eased towards the outside, the Front bezel will swing off. It is just a cover.
5) Now look for a tiny hole near the optical drive's tray.
(CD/DVD drive = optical drive)
Straighten out a paperclip, and bend the end over so that you have a little handle.
Put the straightened out paperclip in the hole, and push in. This is a manual override, and makes the optical drive's tray come partially out.
Then you can grab the tray, and ease it on out.
If there is no manual override hole, you'll have to disconnect the power cable, and data cable, and remove the optical drive's mounting screws.
Then remove the small case cover screws for the optical drive, and remove the disk.
