On the front of the drive there should be a button. It is tiny. That is the 1st way to open it. 2nd if you do not have luck with that try looking for a small hole in the front of the drive. By inserting a paperclip or small precision screwdiver(like what you would find in an eye glass repair kit) gently insert it into the hole and it will eject the door.

How do i restore it to factory settings?


First back-up all data- because all will be lost if you restore to factory settings

You can try "CTRL" + "F12" but that only works if there is a recovery console on a hidden partition ---otherwise
If you do not have a RECOVERY CD then contact Dell to purchase this Recovery CD for your model Dell computer or buy it on EBAY.
Boot up using the Recovery CD and follow the instructions.

The other way is to re-install Windows using a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop or on the side or back of the computer.

Boot up using the Windows installation CD and follow the instructions.
Next install all of the Dell's device drivers.
Next install the Windows service packs (SP2 & SP3 for XP, SP1 & SP2 for Vista)
Next Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone.
Next install all your programs - anti-virus etc.
Next click on Start - Programs - Windows Update (for the latest updates).
Next copy your data back to the computer

The device drivers for your model computer/laptop can be downloaded from the Dell WEB support site.

To download the drivers from Dell WEB site, select your model desktop or laptop, or a better option, type in the Service Tag number,this is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). The Service Tag will open the page where the drivers specific for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

You will need to reboot your PC as it starts up look out for 'boot options' and select boot from your cd drive. If you do not get this option then please reboot again then go into boot options and select your CD rom or DVD rom to be your boot device.

Module Bay


The D610 second battery is installed in the slot occupied by the CD Rom.
This is an additional omponent that can be purchased to extend the battery life for the laptop.

Unless you have this battery module installed the error is completely normal.
