Question about Dell INSPIRON 6000 CENTRINO 1.7GHZ,512mb,40GB,DVDRW,XP (086216118098) PC Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520. The little green light is on and I'm pretty sure there is a DVD in there. However, I cannot open using the button and the paper clip method isn't working either.
On top of that, my computer isn't recognizing this drive anymore.
My very large dog knocked my computer off the couch a month ago and I'm wondering if he did some major damage to this drive.
I know I'll probably need to replace the drive, but I really want to get the DVD that I believe is in there out soon.
Any suggestions on how to make the computer recognize the DVD or a plan C for opening it would be so very appreciated!!!
Turn the laptop off and then over you will see a thumb slider and possibly a screw remove screw (if present) slide ROM lock (thumb slide) and slide ROM out away from compy...and slide it back in and reboot make sure you here the "click" assuring that its in the LOCKED position again.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.
Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).
Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.
Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.
Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.
hope this helps
