Where is manual eject hole on hp slimline pavilion s7320n


Below the drive tray there is a tiny hole, straighten a paper clip and gently insert the paper clip into this hole. Push the paper clip and the tray will release and pop out, then pull the tray out to the fully open position.

I have an HP pavilion slimline s3600f desktop pc and the optical disk drive doesn't seem to be reading cd's or DVD's.


Check the Device Manager to make sure that the OS does not have any issues with the device. If there is an exclamation point ( ! ), then Windows has issue with it. If there is an " ! " then right-click on the device and select update driver.

If the drive shows in My Computer, right-click on the drive and select "eject" from the list. This will verify that the OS is talking to the device.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure that it appears in the BIOS and is not disabled.

Also, Microsoft recently released an update to disable Auto-Play on CD/DVD drives. If Auto-Play isn't working (due to this update), then put a music/movie cd/dvd into the drive and open Windows Media player and try to play the disc through there.

The drive may not be "broken" it just may be that auto-play has been turned off by Microsoft.

How to remove the CD rom drive in a HP Pavalon slimline client?


See the panel on the side of the DVD Drive? remove that by lifting it backwards, it has a black button on top of it, remove it and now you have access to the screws on the side of the DVD drive, after unscrewing there's a button on the opposite side, push it sideways to unlock the drive and push the DVD drive out of the casing. Hope you figure it out.

Can't open optical drive for HP Pavilion Slimline s3620


there should be a little tiny hole on the drive where you can use a paper clip to eject it

once ejected you should be able to see if there are any cogs / bands broken or damaged and if so thats why it wont open normally.

Also is this a laptop or desktop machine ?

Cd drive


I could tell you but it would seem like a long list of things to do. I'm giving you a link for a manual that tells you and SHOWS you exactly what to do. Start with the section opening your computer and then make your way to removing and replacing your optical disk drive. If this is what you needed please rate this as fixed. If you need more help with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. *Pay special attention to part that says what size drive you can install. This is a slimline and can only accspt certain size drives. Thanks.
