How can I eject a cd drive from an Acer Aspire e 15?

Are you asking about ejecting the drive or the CD in the drive? The drive you may or may not be able to eject. Flip over the laptop look for slides or what looks like switches under the CD. Some units may have these releases. You usually slide them to one side or another and the drive can be removed.
If you are asking about the CD, i.e.the laptop wont power up but you still have a CD/DVD in the drive you want. Usually there is a tiny hole on the drive door. It's about the same size as a paperclip diameter. Unbend the paperclip until you have about 1 inch of wire straight out at a 90 degree angle from the clip. Gently slide the wire into the hole on the drive door and give it a gentle push. The door should unlock and come open just a bit allowing you to pull the door all the way open and remove your captured CD. The gears that open and close CD's are plastic and can be stripped very easy so be gentle. Close the CD by slowly pushing the door closed.

Cd stuck on cd drive in Dell

If the Cd drive is not ejecting, try going into My Computer, and right clicking the Drive and selecting "Eject". If that doesn't work, then take a paper clip (or any other piece of wire that small, which does not have a sharp end) and examine your CD/DVD drive. There should be a little paperclip sized hole, this is usually next to the Eject button. Slowly push the paperclip into the hole, until you feel that you have pressed something, and then remove it. The drive should eject. This should work regardless of whether the computer is on or off.

My slimline s3320f 'ate' a small cd. I can't get the cd/dvd drive out. There is a clip on one side, but the other side is still tight. How do I remove the drive.

First of all try to manually eject the tray, look very close at the CD/DVD near the eject button, there should be a very small hole next to it. If you straighten a large paperclip and push it in that hole you will be able to eject the tray and remove the mini disk.
If you can't eject the tray you will have to remove the CD/DVD itself. Now you say its a slimline? that usually means its in a laptop not a desktop. Am i correct in my assumption?
