Disc drive wont open on its own, and doesn't click back in place.

I dropped my laptop, and now the disc drive doesn't shut properly and the only way to open it is to put a pin in the little eject hole on the side.
please help!

There is no solution that could help you to fix this problem on your own.

There are two possibilities:

  • if your disk drive cannot read disks - hardware failure - most probably replacement needed or
  • if your disk drive can read disks - the open button is stuck - take it to the repair store.

Lenovo Z570 Disc tray is stuck -outside of laptop


Open the try slightly, shut down the machine, tilt the machine to the side of the DVD/CD drive a gently shake to loosen the tray or whatever is causing the problem, Is the disk off the spindle? Is the dvd/cd broken? Can you insert something to clear whatever is obstructing it? Have you tried to eject using the software, Go to computer, right click DVD/CD rom drive, click on eject? Has there been any damage to that area, bent..etc? You may have to force it open or remove the drive and try to open it.

Why wont my cd drive work


see this and fix it. God bless you
Turn on your computer and open the CD drive by pressing a small button on the front of the drive. Use a can of compressed air to clean the lens by spraying a few squirts of the air into the drive. This will fix disc skipping if there was dust on the lens.

  • 2 Place a CD drive cleaner into the disc drive. This is a disc that is specifically designed to clean CD drives. Allow it to run for a few minutes, and then extract the disc from the optical drive.


  • 3 Click the "Start" button and then click on the "All Programs" option. Click on the "Windows Update" icon and then click the "Check for Updates" button on the left side of the screen. Click the "Install Updates" button at the bottom of the screen to update the drivers for your CD drive. Restart your computer for the driver changes to take effect.
  • 4 Unplug the power cable from your computer and use a screwdriver to open the tower door. Locate the CD drive cables inside the computer. Make sure that the CD drive cables have not loosened. If the cables are loose, then the drive will not operate properly.

    Dvd reading error


    Try using a known-good (for instance, a movie you just watched on your TV). If it doesn't read that disc, make certain you have seated the disk in the drive properly (Laptop drives have a *CLICK!* when you have seated the disc properly). If that doesn't work- if the laptop is in warranty, get it fixed. If not, use an external drive to fulfill your media needs

    Why isnt my laptop reading discs?


    Try removing the drive and insert it again so it connects properly. If this doesn't fix your problem then most likely the drive is faulty and needs replacing.

    My daughter dropped her laptop now it wont turn on and keeps saying theres a hard drive prpoblem


    Well, either the hard drive inside has come loose from it connector, in which case opening the access door on the back and re-seating the connector will solve your problem, OR, the impact from the dropping has resulting in hard drive crash in which case you need a new hard drive.

    Describe how you insert a dvd into a laptop


    Hi Eunice, just want to clarify, for lenovo notebook if it doesn't have DVD drive you can use external DVD drive to access DVD CD. DVD external drive is just plug and play device once attached in your USB port, it will automatically detected and once detected you can use it already. Just install Burner application to burn some files if your DVD is capable of burning CD.

    I put in a blu ray disc but it is not playing in any media player and the disc drives do not recognise that a disc has been entered


    Unless the drive in your laptop is a blu-ray drive, it won't recognize a blu-ray disc. A blu-ray drive can recognize and play a regular DVD, but it doesn't work the other way around.

    If your computer is indeed fitted with a blu-ray drive, the laser lens may need cleaning. On a laptop, you usually have clear access to the lens with the tray open, so you can try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner. Or the disc itself may have a problem. Try another disc and see if the trouble continues.

    If the computer doesn't have a blu-ray drive and you will frequently want to play blu-ray discs, get a USB external blu-ray drive. It's easier to find one of those than to locate a suitable blu-ray replacement drive for a laptop. There are many variations of drives used in laptops, but an external drive will always be compatible. And you'll be able to use it with other computers not blu-ray equipped.
