I had the same problem and I just literally 30 seconds ago fixed it. What you do is take the filler card out completly. Then push the button in until it clicks and then you can put the filler back in and its good as new!

Re: pc card slot
There are a couple of different kinds of these;
one kind simply folds over when not used.
THe other kind should push all the way in till it clicks (sort of). Was there a filler piece in the slot to begin with?

Look on the cover on the tray near the eject button. Should be a tiny hole. Get something like a straightened out paperclip and insert it in to the hole and push firmly but carefuly. It's an emergency eject for a stuck tray.
The slot will be there in the left hand side of the computer.. It will look like a slot rather than a tray so please use that.. In order to take a disk out of the computer floow these steps Normally the studio laptops have soft eject for the CD and they dont have a button.. Press and hold the Fn key and then press the F10 key to eject the cd.. Another way is get into computer.. Right click on the DVD/cd rom drive and click on eject... This will work....
Restart your computer and enter set up bios. Try ejecting your dvd rom from there... it that doesn't work, get a pin and insert it in the pinhole on the dvdrom whuile pressing the eject button... that should do the trick!

Ok, if you can't eject the disk double right click on computer, where you see you CD/DVD drive right click on the icon and select eject from the list. If it still won't eject get yourself a large paper clip and straighten it, look very closely at the eject button on the CD/DVD drive, you will see a very small hole. Push the straightened paper clip inside that hole and manually eject the disk. Post back if you need anymore help.
After you eject the PCMCIA card you can push the button in until it clicks and stays in. Now you insert your PCMCIA card into the slot and if you want to eject the card you push the button and it will pop out then press the button to eject the card.
If this pressing the button in doesn't lock the button in place, then the spring catch on the button is broken.
That is the PCMCIA eject button. With no card in the PCMCIA slot (Slot empty) you should be able to push the button in slowly till it clicks, then release and the button should stay in. Then re-insert the blank filler or card you had in the slot. (To engage the retention detent, you have to press the button in slightly past the outside of the chassis)
If the button will not engage the detent, then the motherboard will need to be replaced to fix it (The button is part of the motherboard)
