CD and Videocard jammed in my CD Drive. Acer Aspire L320

Need help I have a blockbuster videocard stuck in my cd drive and also a cd which I'm guessing has made the videocard go right to the back stuck in there too thanks to my 2yr old.When I turn the computer on it sounds like the cd drive wants to eject but nothing comes out.Is there a way where I can safely remove it myself without wrecking it or is it better to take the apire L320 to a repairer? Please help ASAP

On the face of the cd drive their should be a small hole. Use a paper clip and press in. It might take a little force but not too much. That is the emergency open on most CD/DVD drives.

Acer aspire L320 how do I uninstal and reinstal from back up disc

If you have the restore disk from the Acer Factory it is a fairly simple process. Insert the disk into the CD Tray. Restart the Computer. While is restarting continue to push F12 until you get a Boot Menu. Using the Arrow Keys, navigate to CD/DVD Drive. Hit Enter. It will continue to Load. A Screen will show that says push any key to boot from CD. Hit any key on the keyboard at this prompt. It will load and then you can begin the Re installation tasks.
