Please provide the model number. Also, assuming you're talking about a CD stuck in the drive. There should be a tiny pin hole on the CD/DVD drive bezel. Unplug laptop and remove battery. Then stick a tiny pin in that hole -- should release the catch that keeps the optical drive bay closed. You can then open the drive and remove the disc.

SD Card and disc stuck in CD slot of Alienware M14x?

try taking a small piece of wire and bending a small hook into one end slide it in on TOP of the stuck disc and hooking the center hole of the disc, (you don't want to get the wire under the disc because you could damage the disc reading hardware) also once you have the disk hooked you may have to use the tweezers to gently hold the front of the disc up to align with the slot as your pulling it out. you should feel a little resistance but don't try to force the disc out too hard.

Dell inspiron dvd drive stuck in open position

Remove the drive from the laptop. You should be able to remove a plate from the drive casing and realign the disc tray with the tracks of the drive. This is fairly normal when too much pressure is applied to the tray while inserting a disc.

To start what operating system are you running? Dell's website has manyy troubleshooting and restore proceedures but you need to know your operating system(XP,Vista, or Windows7). Laptops with newer versions such as vista or windows7 automatcily back up your data to a second partition in the hard drive. There should be a complete copy of your original configuration from the factory which is used to reinstall the operating system and then alowwing restore of data from the same secondary partition so you will not lose you data. I can help you with this but I need whioch operating system your runing. In case your wondering Dell and other maufatcurers stopping sending operating systems discs with the ;laptops when you buy then, instead as mentioned before they install the oprating system on a seperate partition in your hard drive. they did this to stop the bootleggin of the operating discs. You can also contact Dell and give them the information from the servie tag on the bottom of your computer. The service tag # is like a serial number and contains the configuration of the laptop. You can purchase a copy of this disc from Dell for no cost if laptop is under warranty or for a small charge of about $30 if out of warranty, but if reinstaling from the disc all old data will be lost unless you can copy it before reinstallin the operating system.

With the slot load models the whole system needs to be disassembled to retrieve a stuck disc. Are you absolutely sure there is a disc in the drive? If so, it needs serviced and may need the drive replaced.
