Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
My dvd drawer won't open on my inspiron 1525. The little black cover comes off the side of the computer and won't stay on.
Start the system and keep tapping the F2 key when you see the Blue Dell logo. Once you are on the BIOS screen, try to eject the drive - if the drive does not work here > your drive needs a replacement. For the broken plastic panel, you can stick it with a quick stick glue if the drive ejects.
