Just press the button on the drive (Make sure the computer is ON), if that fails, shutdown the computer and jam a straigtened paperclip into the hole in the drive to activate the "Emergency Eject" Funciton (Pull the drive open when you hear a click)

Cd drive keeps ejecting

Does the it eject as soon as you close it or is there a delay?

Things to check in the meantime - The button on the drive itself (you may even have an extra on on your laptop too) to eject the drive isn't stuck or jammed in some way.

There are no foreign objects preventing the tray from closing properly.

If there is a disc in the drive it is seated in the tray correctly.

Dvd is stuck in my ACER laptop how can I get it out

The Acer 5610 has an emergency eject hole to the right of the eject button on the right side of the computer. Find a paperclip and unfold it (or small allan wrench), push the end of the paper clip into the hole until you feel pressure. Press firmly and the optical disc tray should come slightly out of the machine. Grab and pull the tray out (gently). This should work even without power to the drive on any machine tray optical drive, if the tray mechanism is undamaged.

For a slot-loading optical drive, it's a bit trickier. You can try sliding another object into the slot and using it to pry or lift the stuck disc. The safest option is to use another optical disc or credit card sized item and double-sided sticky tape. Put a piece of the tape on the item and then remove the paper from the other side of the sticky tape. Slide the item into the drive with the sticky tape towards the stuck disc (down for most computers). Once far enough into the drive, lower your item and press the tape firmly onto the stuck disc. Lift up and try to pull the stuck disc up and out of the drive.

I hope this helps.

I put a dvd on the disc tray, but it must not have clicked down because now the tray is open and the dvd is still in the computer

The only thing to do there if you have tried everything to get it to remove the disc drive and take it apart...
but this is a strange 1...i,ve never worked on a computer where,s it,s swallowed up the disc...only if the disc drive is stuck in the closed position.....

Or remove the disc drive,give it a gentle taop on the top...then near the bottom of the opening you should see a small hole to put a pin in it ,to manually open the drive...try that a couple of time rarther than opening the drive up...

Hope this help...if it does then please rate it and if i can be anymore help..

Replaced new hard drive and i donot have start up disks

If no startup or back up discs exist, then the best way to install windows is to use a full install disc set of windows 7 home premium if the computer has enough memory and processor speed.

One can purchase the full install discs off of or directly from

I've found that using the full install discs is less of a hassle than using the upgrade discs which require that some partial image of Windows be on the hard drive, before proceeding with the installation.

Otherwise, one could put the old disc drive in, and burn startup or backup discs using the DVD burner, if so equipped.

I wish you luck on this upgrade path.

I have an HP Pavillion Slimline and the cd reader is not working any ideas?

When you say "not working" , can you clarify that a bit?

  • Is the drive opening?
  • Is the drives light flashing when you insert a disc?
  • Do you hear the disc spinning when you insert the disc?
  • Does the cd-drive show in "My Computer"?
There is an issue that I have ran into multiple times in the past few weeks that causes this issue. It is related to a Microsoft Update. To remedy the problem, goto this page and select the "Fix It" icon.
