Did you try to eject it thru the software ? Go to your (My Computer) and open up to see the Drive. Right Click and Eject. If that don't work you can manually put a paperclip in and Pull out the drive. When all else fails remove the screw that is holding the drive in the laptop and pull it out to inspect it for damage

Did you accidentally buy a SATA notebook drive?

SOURCE: How to re-format Dell Inspiron E1705 Laptop

If you want to completely erase all data on your hard drive, and start with a fresh installation of Windows, the process is pretty simple. Boot to you Windows Media Disc, delete the existing Windows Partition (Normally the 1st NTFS partition) then create a new NTFS partition, format it, then install WIndows to that partition. After the Windows installation completes, then install the drivers (Normally in this order:)

Can not insert CD into Drive


You can flip the laptop over, find the screw(s) holding the drive in the bay, remove the screws and the drive, and then either attempt repairing the drive (highly likely not to be worth the time), or breaking down and buying a replacement that does have a tray. Old laptop parts can be quite expensive, but CD-ROM drives in laptops old and new are often quite widely compatible among many makes and models.

Does my Dell Vostro 1710 have a webcam?


It is an optional extra on this laptop according to dell link below.
the webacam is located at the top center of the screen if it is installed when you shine a torch in there you should see the lens like a camera on your mobile.

I would also check the device manager and see if anything appears in there. Perhaps drivers need to be installed.

Forgot my hdd password for dell vostro 1710 laptop


It probably would be easier to reformat the hard drive and start with fresh install of windows to get around this problem, only other option is go to www.ebay.com type laptop and password, and narrow it down to hdd password. There are sellers that offer software to deal with this problem, but the disc is only good so long as you can set the boot order first for the cd/dvd driver and the software must match your operational system.

My dell vostro 1710 laptop computer screen is black.


First, try reseating the memory modules in the laptop.

If still nothing, try removing the hard drive, CD/DVD Drive, and memory one at a time (in that order) see if anything makes it boot.

Replace the parts and try booting again.

The error flashing means a processor failure. If you are knowledgeable you can try re-seating the processor.

However, if your unit is in warranty I would call Dell and have them replace the main board and the memory modules as a set. Warning: They will make you go thru these same tests even if you already have.
