- open the cover
- remove ventilation shroud (black plastic cover)

you'll see that some electronics of the CD/DVD drive are exposed (right side of PC, face of the drive where the CD is inserted)

You can easily locate an LED, if not turn on the pc and you'll see that blink. Right next to it there is a little bump. Try pressing that with something non-metallic, blunt. It should feel like pressing a button, in fact it is a hidden button.

While the pc is on (and still open) press that button once and wait for the disk to eject.

Press the pin hole of the CD rom using a paper clip. You will see that at front near on the LED light of the CD drive.

How do I restore a Dell B110 Deminsion to factory setup without the disc?


Without the disc you can do nada. Of course if you wanna buy a set from HP they will be delighted to sell you recovery discs if still available. Some HP's have the recovery software on a separate partition of the hard drive. If the above is a newer unit it just might have the software and the program to install it already in it

Hp units usually come bloated with lots of trash software, some of which can be problematic in removing. U might just be better off installing a fresh copy of the OS of choice and taking it from there.

I put a disc in the drive and it stayed in the computer when the disc drive was opened


I am assuming that when the disc drive tray came out, the holder was empty, and you had placed the disc in the holder prior to this. Did you use the disc? Did it operate properly? Has your PC been tilted for any reason before trying to remove the disc? My feeling is the disc has to be SOMEWHERE! Take a flashlight and take a peak in the opened drive. Can you see the disc anywhere? Perhaps tweezers can be used with scotch tape wrapped around the points to keep it from scratching the disc. Grasp the edge of the disc and pull it out, if possible. If you can't find the disc, you should open the case and do a search. You might need to remove the drive itself, but hopefully you will get the disc back without needing to go to that step.

Good luck!

How do I eject a disc from a dell sdudio one


Removing a disc with the computer off

To remove a disc with the computer turned off:

1 Insert a slender object, such as a straightened paper clip, into

the manual eject hole.

The disc tray slides partially out of the drive (about 1 inch).

Never use a pencil to press the manual eject button. Pencil lead can

break off inside the computer and damage it.

2 Pull the tray out until it is fully open, remove the disc, and

place it in its protective cover.

3 Gently press the tray in to close it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Disc drive no longer reads discs, when trying to burn error "please insert empty disc" pops every time, regardless of CD inserted.


Assuming you have already tried a cleaning kit, the unit has probably burnt out the laser and will need replaced. Luckily new DVD+R burners can be found for less than $25.

I have an acer t135 desktop and when using the recovery discs i had make it stopped on the last disc and is now not working at all and just shows the power light and a red light help neone pls


Can you put the last disc into some other CD/DVD reader, to confirm that it is readible?

Can you totally restart the recovery, to see if it stops at the same point?

Have emachine T5212. Won't recognize when a disc has been loaded


If this happens for every disc inserted (make sure that it's not just a scratched or dirty disc.), the laser lens probably needs to be cleaned. Since this is a desktop computer, you can't get to the lens very easily. Open the tray and use a can of compressed air to blow out the inside of the drive. If this fails, you can buy a lens cleaner disc and try that. (Some manufacturers don't recommend this, but I've never experienced any issues with it. Just be sure that the disc is made for cleaning CD/DVD drives.) The final option is to remove the drive from the PC case, remove the cover, and GENTLY clean the lens with a q-tip and alcohol. If all else fails, optical drives are extremely inexpensive, and very easy to replace.
**Note:Removing the case from the drive will void any applicable warranty.

Yes, it should see it as a removable disc drive because it is a removable disc drive. This is absolutely normal.

Can't get disc out of tower


Restart the computer, and when computer is starting up keep pressing many times the eject button until disk pops out.
Do this a couple of times
If this does not work you will need to remove the CD/DVD unit and stick a paperclip on the CD eject hole, in the front side of the CD/DVD drive.
