    Did you install any software before this problem started happening? When was the last time it worked properly?

Gateway dx4200 09 dvd drive will not eject?

Unable To Eject DVD From DVD-ROM Drive With The Eject
The DVD-ROM drive will not open to release the DVD when the button is pushed on the drive. RESOLUTION:
  1. Shut down the program that you are installing or running that uses the DVD-ROM drive.
  2. Wait 10 to 15 seconds, and then open the DVD-ROM drive by pushing the eject button on the DVD-ROM drive.
  3. If the DVD-ROM drive door still does not open, do the following:
    • Insert a paper clip or small pointed object into the small hole near the button on the DVD-ROM door.
      Gently push in the paper clip until the DVD-ROM door opens.
    • Remove the CD from the drive.
To prevent the DVD-ROM drive from exhibiting this behavior again, follow these steps:
  1. From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Device Manager tab.
  4. On the Device Manager tab, double-click the CD-ROM category.
  5. Double-click Toshiba DVD-ROM.
  6. In the Toshiba DVD-ROM Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
  7. On the Settings tab, clear the Auto insertion notification check box, and then click OK.
  8. Click Close.

My cd door no longer opens on my dell dimension 2400. The light is off too.


Hi minic2,


Your CD-ROM must be defective.
Try to check the connection of the cables from and to your CD-ROM and motherboard as well as the power cable.
If it is still not working, I suggest you replace it with new.

Hope this helps you a lot.

Thank you for using FixYa!

How to install microsoft office


Insert the installation CD and wait for the setup wizard to load. After you insert the installation CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive, a dialog box will appear prompting you to begin installation. If this dialog box does not appear, double-click your CD drive and explore the contents of the CD. Double-click the file called "setup.exe" to start installation.
Select an installation type. In the setup wizard, click the "Next" button until the dialog box asks you to select an installation type. You must select either "Minimum," "Typical" or "Advanced" installation. Although the "Typical" installation is recommended, you can select "Minimum" if you wish to use as little hard disk space as possible to install Microsoft Office XP. Selecting "Advanced" will require you to select individual components you wish to install. Do not choose this installation type if you are unfamiliar with these components.
Finish the setup wizard and restart your computer. Click "Next" and wait for the progress bar to indicate that the installation was successful. Click "Finish" to close the dialog box and finish installation. When the dialog box closes, restart your computer

I was in a hurry and turned my computer off via the main power button while a disk was in it. I can power back up but it flashes a light at the CD door and a dialog box appears in the middle of the monitor...


Normally there is a very small hole just beneath the CD door, poke in it with a needle, it then should open, no power needed for that.

Els you may try to remove the wires that connect the CD rom to PC, start up the PC, if all is ok, ask an expert to manually remove the disk (this is only if first attempt did not work)

I know this is going to sound dumb but is the drive for loading educational software for my child the top or the bottom one ?


If it is a cd-rom and you have more than 1 cd-rom in your pc, any cd-rom will work fine just insert the disk and allow to auto run. Hope This Helps. Good Luck.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
