Theres only three things to do
1 theres a small pinhole to manually open the draw just stick in a toothpick and the draw should open see if you can see the disk and shake it out(if it fell in so easy.
2 get a screw driver and start unscrewing the bottom panel(sometimes theres screws under the rubber pads on the bottom when you think their out just slowly wiggle if theres more youll feel it carefully of cousre after taking out battery hard drive and ram and if you need to unscrew any circuit boards lift them slightly just enough to get the disk to make sure no wires are pull out cos there will be wires that connect everything to each other, its easier than it sounds if you get cold fett stop and put it back together. also by doing this you void warranty but if thats expired then thats what id do rather than option 3 Pay a store to do the same thing, although i would expect it to cost $20-$45 and i wouldnt pay more than twenty but you might get rip offs
These are your choices
I hope you feel well advised

How to reinstall data backup hp dv7


try putting the disc back in but dont let it load.
then find your computer icon double click on it and it should take you to were it shows you your hard drive and the drive were your disc is in.right click on that and you will see were it says,open..
click open.and what that will do is what they call open the disc.
when the disc opens you should see everything on that disc that you put on there when you copyed all your files,if they are not on there then iam sorry to say but you may have lost everything if you done a full format.best of luck.

Disc draw wont open


On the front of the CD tray you will see a small pin hole, take a pin or fine screwdriver and insert it until you hear click, the loading bay should pop open and pull out. Take a can of compressed air and blow inside to remove any dirt that may linger.

Either your CD/DVD drive is dirty & needs to be cleaned, or the drive has gone bad & needs to be replaced.
First, try to take the drive off the laptop. Open the drive & blow compressed air into it (from a can of compressed air) to clean it. You could also clean the lens (the small round glassy object inside the drive) using lens cleaning tissues & lens cleaning fluid.
If this did not fix the problem, you will need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a working one, or use an external CD/DVD drive

Hey I have the exact same problem.
I called Compaq and they made me pay $30 for 8 recovery disks. They didn't help at all! not even the full flush! I am extremely pissed off.
