Hi there:
If you know how to boot the computer into bios look for the boot section and check to see if the cd rom is there if not change the settings to show a cd rom and than save and reboot but i think you may have damaged the cd rom when you forced it open these are pretty delicate devices , force should never be used .
best regards mike

Cd tray wont open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 and the dvd and cd drive wont work


Hi
First of all, check that the computer can seet he DVD drive in "My Computer" (By "see" i mean that there is an icon theres showing that it knows there is a DVD present.**

If there is, when you insert a disc, can you see the green ready light on the DVD?

If you have tried several DVD and CD,s and none work, there is a possible power issue with the drive
You can try and remove the screw that retains the drive into the laptop, pull out the drive and re-insert it gently but firmly, sometimes this wakes up the drive.

** if the computer cannot see the drive, please repost and I'll go through the proceedure to get it recognised

How to insert dvd in acer 5538


Since there is no external drive bay button on the Acer 5538, you either insert a paperclip or similar object into the pinhole on the optical drive door until it opens or...open the 'Start' menu, click 'Computer' (1/2-way down under the user picture), highlight the 'DVD RW drive' and mouse click 'eject' under the top-screen toolbar. I hope this helps.

Laptop not show cd or dvd when i put it


Well, for starters, is your cd/dvd turned on in the bios.  Some but not all computer have a setting for this.  If your cd/dvd drive is removable, shut down the computer, remove the drive.  Reboot the computer and shut it down again.  Then reconnect the drive and start the computer back up.  This will make sure that if your drive is working, windows will redetect it.  You can check device manager to make sure it is not disabled.  If none of this works, you may have a bad drive.  If you really must reinstall windows, you can get an external cd/dvd drive pretty cheap on Ebay.  Just make sure you go into your BIOS setting and change the boot menu to external drive.  I hope this information helps.

The issue can be either with the Hardware or the software.

Make sure that this issue happens wiht all the CDs or DVDs you are using or able to used eariler.

First, check if the DVD Drive is listed in My Computer or not.

If yes, try uninstalling the DVD Drive from the Device manager by following the steps :

Right Click on My Computer and select Properties in the list.

Now go to Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.

Device Manager window opens in a seperate window.
Now click on the [+] mark next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to expand the tree.

Right click on the DVD Drive entry and select Uninstall.

Confirm if you get any message and close the Device Manager and restart the Notebook so that the DVD Drive Drivers will be reinstalled automatically.

Uninstalling DVD Drive Drivers in Vista :

Click on the Start Menu and type in Device Manager in the search field.

Click on the Device Manager from the results which will open the Device manager window.

Follow the same instructions to uinstall it.

If you find the yellow ! marks in the Device Manager, you may have to do some modifications in the Registry by following the instructions in the links below :

For XP :

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

For Vista :

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us

you may have either the Upper or Lower filter or both.

Delete both of them and restart the Notebook.

Finally, try removing and reseating the DVD Drive from the instructions available in the Manual in page number 135 of 310 :

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01035657.pdf

If the issue repeats, issue can be with Hardware.
