If you can't open the shelf, try to put a gem into the small opening in the front of the shelf, it will also be able to open the shelf in the old versions of WMP, I think^^. Good Luck! Regards, David.

If this is on your PC then try opening your CD Drive as soon as you power up. If it opens easily at this time but not AFTER it has booted up then you have a driver problem.

If this is the case I would remove the drive from the system, ie unplug the unit both power and ide cable, then reboot twice to take it out of rotation. If it is not the case, then your on board cd controller is bad, just replace the drive.

Next, after powering down, connect the CD Drive to a different IDE controller. Power on and then check the opening of the door. You will have a 66% chance of fixing your problem this way.

Good luck.

My cd rom will not open what can i do


  1. Software can lock the CD drive preventing you from ejecting. If this is the problem, turn off the machine, turn on, when the DELL screen flashes, push the eject button several times and the CD will eject.

  2. If that doesn't work, look for a small hole the size of a paper clip and gently push a paper clip into it. When you meet resistance, the drawer will start to open. You can then pull it open carefully. The computer can be off when you try this.

  3. If neither work, then you might have a jammed CD, i.e. incorrectly inserted. You can try to force the drawer open with your fingers but don't use so much force you strip the plastic gears.

My DVD-ROM tray opens only after many tries.


As per your information you done all the basic work. Hope you use little bit of oil drop in the side of the tray. If not then try that .If no success then there is a small spring available for tray in and out function. You have to change that spring from a service center or if possible then at home.
Thanks and waiting for your reply.

Well...first lets make sure the drive still can physically open.

There in the picture will show you where the manual eject button is. Use a paperclip and push the button in the hole. Once the drive is open enough for you to pull the tray, go ahead and pull it as far as it will come out. It will stop, and it shouldn't come all they way unattached from the rest of the unit.

Go ahead and take any cd or dvds that was in the drive out and turn your computer back on.

Once into windows, push the regular eject button and the drive should close the door itself. Let it sit for a second or two, and try hitting the eject button again. 9 times out of 10, that usually fixes my drives.

Hope this helps!

Cd-rom/dvd-rom door won't open


Hi!This is not a big problem...All you have do is take a pin, needle or something and just insert it into the small hole near your cd-rom drive..try this repeatedly while pressing the eject button..If it doesn't work you will have to unscrew the two screws on the right of your keyboard..doing this will give you the access to the cd tray and you can remove the cd and put it back together..
