Cd jammed in a dell pp31l

There are two ways toopen the CD 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 drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drivetray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive traypops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CDdisc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD driveis faulty and needs replacing.

Acer CD is not getting ejeccted

The mechanism is physicall jammed.
Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Push that end into the small hole in the faceplate of the CD-drive.
Push until you feel resistance, and then push another 1/4 inch (10 mm).
The door should "unlock" -- gently pull the tray the rest of the way open, and remove any disk.
Then, it's time to spend $40, to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.]

Cd is jammed

What you can do is look for a paper clip and make it into a long pin by straightening it. Then insert it into a small pin hole which you can find on the CD Rom. Push the pin a little hard and you will find your CD Rom Tray opening up about an inch out. Now you can pull the cd tray out and take out your CD. Read more at

CD-Rom Drive tray came off

If the tray came out of the drive, it's toast. If the face plate came off the tray, it usually slides back on from the top down. If the face plate came off the drive itself, it should pop back on if you line up the tabs properly.

CD ROM is jammed-wont open

This has happened to me. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I'll place a CD or DVD in the tray and start to close it without making sure that the disk is seated flat in the tray. If it's ****-eyed the CD wil shatter when the tray is closed. The only way to remove the pieces inside the CD drive is to take apart the CD drive. Might be easier just to replace the unit. They run from about $25.00 to $75.00. One other note: You can try to open the tray manually by inserting the end of a paper clip into a small hole on the front bezel of the drive.

Your CD-ROM may still be functional. The tray may just be stuck, instead of broken. First let's remove the CD.

Get a large paperclip and bend the end out straight. Look for a tiny hole underneath the CDS tray. Push the end of the paperclip into it, and it should open the CD tray a little. Then pull it out the rest of the way and get your CD out. Then try pushing the eject button on the CD-ROM to get the tray to go back in. It may take several trys. If that does not work push the tray in, slowly. Then try the eject button again. I hope that works.

If it does not you can continue to use the CD of course (lots of CD-ROMs have paperclips hanging out of them. And I've seen the problem go away, occasionally, after continued opening and pushing back the tray.
