Hello gilliani,

Hello trt38,

On the front panel of the DVD-RW, you should see a small hole, either above or below the tray. Take a paper clip and open it out. This should just about fit into the hole. Push the clip tip into the hole as far as it will go and keep poking around. This will actuate the manual release lever for the tray and the tray should pop out.
S-L-O-W-L-Y pull the tray out and take out your DVD. Restart the computer and the tray should go in automatically.

Hope this helps! You should be able to buy spares directly from the manufacturer or a local computer store. You could even try a google search to find a store near you, or you can purchase the parts online.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

    Please check properly, gilliani.



    ALL DVD/CD players for PS's/laptop have one. This actuates the release
    lever manually, in case of computer shuts downs or failure. If it is
    not at the top or below the tray, it may be just side of the tray.
    There HAS to be one. here are some pics to show you what I mean..








    In case you have a laptop, here are some pics..


    Hope that helps!

    Should you have any further questions, please feel free to
    post them here.

    Ok, ignore the post above. I just saw a pic of your PC. Can't see the drive properly, but I found THIS user manual that may be of some help..

    Hmm.. it could be a problem with loading belt or rotor. If you say that this is a new computer, I would recommend that you take it your point of purchase and let them sort it out for you, because if you open up the PC, you could loose your warranty...

    All the best,

My acer x1700 cd drive wont open.. i can hear it attempt to open. i do not have an emergency bottom or push out hole. please help many thanks


CD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

if you want to keep the cd rom in tact not really you would have to either use a flathead screwdriver and forceably remove the disk tray or taking case off to expose the cd drive and unplugging it removing from computer and than opening the drive itself to retrieve the cd
