Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
Assuming the normal eject button isn't working....
Shut the computer down. Do not just re-boot. Wait at least two minutes, then start the machine again. After it re-boots, try ejecting the CD again with the eject button.
If still no luck, look for a small hole in the CD drive front cover. Open a paper clip and insert it into the hole carefully. This should permit the CD door to open.
This problem can sometimes be caused by a bad CD and in other cases, a corrupt CD driver. If it keeps happening, try re-installing the drivers for the drive. The last resort would be a bad CD/DVD drive.
