    This is not a desk top computer, so it does not have a hole anywhere in the laptop. Thanks for trying.

    I have a gatewya M-series computer, the dvd is stuck inside the computer and will not eject (it is still inside even though I cannot see it)

    Inserted a DVD into the drive, the disc then disappeared into the baseof the laptop. I can get the drive to open and close, but the disc will not eject with it.

There is a small hole, usually near the eject button. Unbend a paper clip and carefully push the paper clip into the hole, try to keep it straight. drive should pop right out.

Thank you for the advice about sticking a paperclip in the hole by the eject button. I was scared of being injuried. But it worked!!! I used the large paperclip and the CD popped out within seconds!

Thanks again!

press the "eject" button again.
If the error indication still does not turn off after
pressing the "eject" button for a few times, consult your
Alpine dealer.
