Re: CD not rejecting
The only thing that can be done is to go to my compter, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look for cd/dvd drives, click the + sign and when your drive appears, right click on it select uninstall, then restart the pc and it will reinstall itself again.
If you still find that it wont eject, either the firmware or the mechanism is at fault and only replacing the drive will be the solution as they are only very cheap to replace and very easy to fit.

Hi, the disc drive has an emergency eject hole on the front. With the laptop switched off, insert a paper-clip (or similar thin object) into the hole until the cd pops out. This is number 4 in the picture below:
Use a pin and insert in the emergency eject hole (usually in the center below the tray) and then you can eject the drive tray with force. It is time you planned for a new drive.
Untill then please insert a music CD into the drive tray and leave it there, this will ensure the eject will work (most of the time). Booting time will definitely increase if the drive has issues, reading or responding.
In an emergency you can use an unbent paperclip (or anything similar) in the tiny hole on the front of the drive, that will release the catch and open the drive. You can do this with the notebook on or off.
Hi! My reply is a bit late, but if you still have the same problem this may help.
You can force your DVD rom to eject a disc by poking a paper clip into the small hole near the eject button. Insert a paperclip into the hole for a few seconds (perhaps 10 to 30 sec). You may need to repeat the process several times until it ejects the disc. In case you are wondering where is this little hole - it's on the left side of the eject button.
did you try to do the emergency eject ?

use the eject method again, Computer powered Off. Open the drawer and push it back in firmly.
This is an eject button, make/break switch problem.
Also try ejecting the drive from my computer/Right click with mouse ( CD Drive ) Eject.
And ensure the 4 Pin Molex ( Red-Black-Black-Yellow ) is the right way round. Yellow usually faces to the outside of the casing.
Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.
Since the warranty period has expired I will assume that the CD/RW has been in use for some time.
Normally a small belt powered by a motor drives a gear that slides the tray out. Sometimes this belt is loose, warped or plain cut. Replacing the belt should solve the problem. You have to open the CD and it is near the front just below the tray.
In other instances, the grease on the toothed railing at the sides and/or underneath the tray gets gummed up, cleaning and repacking with new light grease should take care of that.
Rarely (but still does happen), the motor itself burns up and replacement (if you can get the part) is in order.
An interim fix is to push a small straightened metal paperclip at a small hole below the tray cover/lip and slightly push till the tray partially opens. You can then manually pull it out.
Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Good luck and kind regards.
