Re: Cd rom drive is stuck closed, done everything i can...

Quasi every cd rom had a little hole for emergency eject,you can put a paper clip on it for opening the lock when the computer is off. Also under the laptop must be a screw which take the cd-rom on place.Removing only this screw you can remove entire cd-rom drive by pulling it out. You can do this with laptop turned off and the battery removed. Never use excessive force.. Hope this can help - Bye

My DVD drive is not coming out. Whenever i restart the computer, it has some light blinking ,but when i push the button, it is not doing anything. My cd is insdie, I am new to electronics, please help. god...

I think your DVD rom tray is stuck in the mechanism.
You can try this. Search for some sefti pi or some long but very thin rigid wire. look at the dvd drive. you wil find a small hole at the front of the body. insert the wire or the seftipin inside like 10 cm. you will feel like pressing a button by the seftipin or wire, i hope it will pop the CD tray out. Once it is out, remove your cd from the tray. open and close the empty tray few times, do not use lubricants as they will damage the belts inside..
It should work.

Help my cd drive will not close. I am not sure if a cd inside. I am trying to install fax/printer mfc-295cn

If there was a cd inside then you should see it in the tray when the tray opened. If not, try to shake it with the tray open to hear if there's plastic rattling inside. If all else fails you may have to remove the cd-rom drive from the machine (with the power off) to see what else might be stuck in there.

Maybe try to install the mfc-295cn with drivers downloadable through the Internet instead of a cd-rom. They may be more up to date anyway.

Go to start--run--type devmgmt.msc it will take you to device manager.Hopefully you can see your Cd/DVD rom in there. So right click on it and press uninstall. Dont get scared you will get it again itself in next reboot.
IF you dont see it in there, it means there is something wrong with your drive or check if connections are loose or something
Hope it helps !!

Cd/dvd drive

You can see a hole located on the tray of the cd rom drive. Commonly seen beside the button to eject the cd out. Grab a small pin and push the hole and this should eject the tray. Close the tray again by pressing the button. Eject it using the button. If everything still failed, call up Dell to have the CD Rom Drive replaced.

Cd rom does not close

Before you do that - clean your laptop keyboard (soft makeup brush and canned air), if you are using an external keyboard clean it extremely well also - you might have a key stuck. (usally the Fn key).
