If the boot priority in the BIOS setup screen is set to thr CD it  will open the cd door every time you boot looking for the BOOT cd.    It will not accept anything else, at that point except a boot cd since it hasn't found the operating system (windows) yet.    By "blue laptop" you mean "blue screen" DO a "Windows restore" or reinstall windows from the reinstall cd or Harddrive partision containing the restore files.

How do i open a disk drive to a acer aspire e touch


well it sounds to me like you are just trying to open the drive to insert a disk ? go to "computer" or "my computer" on the desktop, double click to open. you should see your hard drive "c" and cd/dvd drive "d" listed. right click the "d" drive, left click eject, voila. if you have more than one hard drive or a partitioned drive there might well be more drive letters but your cd/dvd drive will be marked as such. alternatively click "start", bottom left of desktop, click "computer" and once again you should see your drives listed. physically there should be , on the cd/dvd drive drawer itself a small button, push it once to open. failing all else, there should be a very small hole in the drive drawer, using say a paper clip or similar, insert into the small hole and push reasonably firmly, this should release the drawer manually and the drive will open. hope that helps. good luck.

It may be bad. Has the laptop been damaged? Dropped? Open Device Manager, DVD/CD Rom drives, is it listed? In Start Menu, Computer, Is it listed? Try re installing the DVD rom driver, the MS Vista 32bit drivers can be found here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/vostro-a860

Insert a blank diskette into the floppy drive. Click start click on computer you should see all of you drives.

Right-click on Drive A. You will see the option to format the drive.

For CD Rom or DVD disks


Open the software that you use to burn or write files to the CD-rom or DVD drive.

Click on "Make a Data CD or DVD." Insert a blank CD-R or DVD-R disk into the drive.

Look for the option to "Make this disk bootable." You may have to scroll over the various icons displayed to find this option. Click on the option.

Burn the CD or DVD as usual. Once completed, this disk can be used to boot your computer.

My DVD drive won't open - seems stuck


on the front of the dvd drive, there is a small pinhole that you will need to insert something the size of a safety pin and push inside and that should pop it open and you can pull it open the rest of the way. or you can also try "start/my computer/dvd drive/then rightclick on the dvd drive icon and click "eject". if its not reading disks as well, you can purchace a cleaning disk. the drive may be about ready to quit working so plan on a new one in the near future if possible. hope this helps!!

Dvd won't open program


Does your dvd drive opens other dvd's if it does, that means your dvd has gone bad but if your dvd drive fails to play any dvd's than it's a problem with your dvd drive.

Best way to test it would be to insert a new empty dvd and see if your dvd drive opens it.

My DVD drive D works fine. Problem is with one particular CD.


this is a very common problem for all CD/DVD drives... sometimes.. there are CD-R DvD-R brands that will not work with your CD/DVD drive... its compatibility issues... another possibility is that the CD burning was bad.
