If the light comes on then you might have a program stuck that is accessing it.. I would suggest rebooting.. if it still will not open.. there is a small hole in the front on the drive.. (on most) that you can unfold a paperclip and push it in to manually release the door.. good luck

How to use a paper clip to open CD or DVD door


I have answered many questions about CD and DVD drives. One of the most common problems is "My CD door doesn't open"
This can be caused by several things but I am going to explain how to open the door manually.
To do this requires a small Paperclip. Straighten the paperclip. Find the small hole in the CD or DVD door. Gemtly insert the paperclip and push on the button inside. If the drive does not have a mechanical problem the door will open.

Cd rom door wont open


Do you see blinking light on your CD Drive. If not, you may need to check you power supply to CD Drive.
If yes, may be door looks jam, opening up once may remove any dust to smooth it out again. To open up there is small pin hole on cd drive, generally on the right side, use needle and press it through the pin hole, it will eject the CD Door and you can pull it out completely.

My cd compartment won't open.


You can manually open the door using a straightened paper clip inserted into a small hole in the door. Press firmly and the door will be released. You may have a CD stuck in there, or you may need to reinstall the driver for the CD. Or the CD drive may have failed...at least the control part that opens and closes the door.

Cd rom drive door


Best guess is that a small plastic catch broke. My cousin has similar doors on his CD trays. I personally would take the doors off. As far as repair, again best guess without seeing it, is that you'll need a new door panel.

CD/DVD


see care fully on the cd/dvd door, there must be a very narrow hole. This is an emergency hole to open the door.
  1. Make shutdown your Lap.
  2. Take a long niddle or hard wire.
  3. Push it gently inside the hole.
  4. It will strick inside, then push with slightly more force and you will notice that door is openning. Just push more till you can pull out CD/DVD tray by hand.

Thanks

you can find a small hole at the front side of your cd drive , carefully insert any pin inside this hole and press it , your cd drive door will open.

Some time holding the cpu in 90 degree angle while system is on and pressing the eject button releases the cd door.
