Replace cd player

There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Dvd drive does not open

Have you tried pushing a paperclip in the manual release hole in the bezel of the drive? The opening mechanism of the tray may be jambed shut, possibly pushing the release will unjamb the mechanism.

Stuck DVD tray

Turn off the computer and then use the paper clip to open the DVD tray.
If this doesn't work, then something is jaming and stopping the tray from opening. In this case, remove the DVD drive and dismantle the drive (ie. remove the metal cover to reveal the internal components and remove the CD ot DVD disc.
If nothing works the the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced, these drives are not expensive.

System shuts down when opening dvd drive

The best thing for you to do in this case is send it back to Acer details can be found on thier website of how to do this.

If you wish to test this though, turn the laptop on and immediately eject the dvd drive whilst pressing the required key to enter the bios. Usually F2 or F12 if you can still find the Dvd drive listed in your bios when its ejected then it could be an OS problem. However if not its a hardware issue and opening the laptop will void the warranty.

I think what is happening is that when you open it in windows it causes the drive to be disconnected causing a fatal error in windows and thus it reboots or shuts down the system to prevent anymore damage.

Opening acer aspire 5050

The top and bottom covers are also held together with plactic catches.
After you remove the battery, CD/DVD drive and hard drive etc.
start near an openning and gently pull apart the top and bottom cases, you should hear a click as a catch releases, then continue to work around the edge fron this point.

Suspect dvd drive ribbon cable disconnected from Acer 9410 laptop

I guess it depends on the type of drive your laptop came with. Some laptops have a switch on the bottom of the laptop that lets you release and remove the DVD drive. Others have a small screw that has to be removed to pull out the drive. Yet others need the case completely taken apart. Guess it depends on your model...

try releasing the dvd tray by inserting a paper clip, and then, with laptop upside down, while moving the tray in and out, and using a flashlight,  look for a window opening through the tray that allows access for a screwdriver and you may find the last screw.
