I don't see the previous thread with everything you tried but for a stuck CD-Rom. The first and easiest thing to try would be:

You can straighten a paper clip and use the straight end to fish open the CD-Rom through the little pen head size hole located close to the mouth of the CD tray or around the power button/light.

I cant get my disk out of my xps m1330 laptop what do I do?


Have you tried using the Eject button on the controls above the Function keys on your Dell XPS M1330 laptop to eject the disk from the optical drive?

If the above does not solve the problem then you may need to refer to the Service Manual for your XPS M1330 which has information on how to remove and replace the Optical drive if this has failed.

The disk in my dell studio 1737 will not eject. Pressig the eject button creates the sound of it ejecting but no disc is ejected. Is there a way to manually force the ejection of a disk?


If you look at the front of the CD drawer, you should see a tiny hole. That hole is to allow the removal of a disk that will not eject.
Find yourself a paper clip and straighten it out except for the shortest bend and form it into the shape of a letter L.
With the rest of the clip looking nice and straight push it into the hole gently and that wil actuate the mechanism that will release the disk.
Hope that helps.

Can't insert CD into Dell Studio 17 - ejects!


There are small plastic drive gears that respond to the drivebelt. These gears are very fragile and may have come out of syncronization.

Dell studio touch keys won't work. the eject button stays lit and none of the media keys above the keyboard work when this happens.


Shut down your computer, remove AC power, remove the battery for about a minute. Put the battery back in, hold the power button for 30 seconds. This should reset it.

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


Supposing that the Studio 15 / 17 has a slot loading drive:

You can either press the eject button above the keyboard (the touch sensitive one)

or

Go to 'Computer' in Vista and right click the CD/DVD drive. Then click 'Eject'.

This should work.

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


It's very annoying they don't tell you how to do this. I looked here for the solution, then found it myself.

You have to depress the blue Fn key and simultaneously depress F10. Notice that that key has a blue "eject" symbol on it.
