SOURCE: dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside

Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."

I cant get my disk out of my xps m1330 laptop what do I do?


Have you tried using the Eject button on the controls above the Function keys on your Dell XPS M1330 laptop to eject the disk from the optical drive?

If the above does not solve the problem then you may need to refer to the Service Manual for your XPS M1330 which has information on how to remove and replace the Optical drive if this has failed.

Straighten a paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole below the CD drive tray. Push the paper clip gently into this hole and the CD tray will pop out slightly. Pull the tray out to the fully opened position so you can remove the disc.

I have a dell xps M1330. My 4 year old daughter somehow managed to get 2 cds inside the cd drive and now I can't get out. Need help! Thanks.


On the front face place of your CD player, next to the button you use to eject/open the CD caddy, you should see a very small hole. Using a paperclip, insert the paperclip and gently press in the paperclip. It should release the caddy.

Machine won't start - so put diagnostic cd in and now cannot eject it. Sift key eject does not work - is there any other way of ejecting cd from Dell XPS One


You may not be able to eject CDs or DVDs from your computer, either using the Windows Eject feature or by pressing the button on the drive. If the Recommended Solution above does not automatically return your drive to a working state, try these options:
  1. Attempt to Eject the CD in System Setup. Software may be interfering with the normal operation of the drive. Reboot the computer and tap the F1 key while at the Dell logo screen to enter System Setup. Then attempt to eject the CD tray using the button on the drive. If the drive ejects properly, there is a software conflict that needs to be resolved.


  2. Try a Diagnostic Startup. If the drive ejects normally in System Setup, try a Diagnostic Startup of Windows 7.
    1. In Windows, click Start, then in the Search box type msconfig and hit .

    2. Click Diagnostic Startup to load basic devices and services only.

    3. Reboot the computer and try to eject the drive when you get back into Windows 7.

    If the drive ejects correctly, look for burning software that may be controlling the drive and update it or uninstall it.

  3. Reseat the drive. The cabling of the drive may be loose, or the drive may not be seated correctly in the laptop. Refer to the Online User's Guide for your computer for information on reseating the cables or the drive in the computer.


  4. Update the optical drive firmware and the BIOS on the computer. In some instances the firmware of the drive may become corrupted or the BIOS may 'lose' the drive. Visit the Dell Drivers and Downloads website and input your Service Tag to get updates specific to your computer.

My dell xps m1330 will not boot up.it comes up on screen saying ''no boot sector on internal hard drive'' ''no bootable devices''it has had a new motherboard fitted by Dell.i'm trying to install xp pro


When it's booting, try to access the setup, aka BIOS. See if you can set CD/DVD as a booting option. As the top BOOT device. Then see if you can boot your installation CD. You may be able to format your drive during the installation - if the hard drive hasn't failed?

Dell XPS M1330 Laptop can't boot to windows, when running express test, got error code 0F00:137B when re-install the vista, it stop at "Expanding files (0%)" long time ...


if you bought this from dell, use the restore disks that came with it starting with disk one. you wont be able to save your files bt at least you will have a usable computer. i have an XPS studio 16 and had to do the same thing.
