Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop. I got one of those half size CDs with a new cell phone and foolishly inserted into it the D drive of the laptop. Of course it disappeared out of reach and the Eject function does not eject it. What can I do to get it out, please?

    Thanks for response. My Vostro 1510 does not have a conventional tray that ejects. It is more like the CD drive in a car. The CD goes into a slot and comes out of it when ejected. That might explain why I cannot find the hole that your response referred to. Also there are no screws at the back of the laptop that correspond to where the CD drive is. Any other suggestions, please?

Try to turn the laptop upside down ...in case the disk felt out trough the hole of the tray ..and take a look at the tray face that it is a hole in which you have to insert a sharp object in order to manually eject the tray ..If you are lucky it will slide out ..and the disk will be in ..
Another way ..if it is stuck..is to remove the cd drive ..by removing the 3 screws in the back that are placed in the drive directions (disposed in triangle ) ..and after that eject the tray manually with a sharp object in that hole aside ...to have something to hold it , and pull it out..
once out ...disassemble with care and get the disk out ..
Lets hope that will be no need to take teh drive out and if you manually eject the tray you will be able to get the disk ..
after that copy the driver from it in another regular computer ..and put it on a memory stick ..and run it from there ..

I am having issues with my laptop Dell Vostro 1510. Getting a black screen and white cursor in the upper left hand corner.


The error code indicates that the system is not able to access or detect any Hard Disk Drive.
If comfortable you can try the following:
1. Open your laptop following the below guide
2. Look for the Hard Disk Drive
3. Remove it from the system
4. Re-seat the Hard Disk drive
5. Re-start the system

If still the HDD is not detected I am afraid to say that the Drive is gone bad and needs a replacement.

Kindly feel free for any further clarification or assistance.
