Try using a very fine screwdriver, or a needle and give it another shot, if you still can't open it then you must take the case off and remove the entire cd/dvd drive and take it apart.

My dvd-writer/cd-writer combo will not open?


look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.

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.

Unable to open DVD drawer


If you take a paper clip and straighten it, there is a little hole in the front of the CD drive, push the paper clip into it and your CD drive will get pushed open. This will get a CD out, but will not fix it.

Try re-seating, or connecting a different power cable to the back of the CD drive. Does your PC even recognize that the CD drive is present?

Most of the time the CD drive needs to be replaced.... they are very cheap.

Somewher on the front of the CD drive there is a VERY small hole. Take a paper clip and insert it into this hole and gently push on the paper clip until you find that it depresses a bit. At the same time gently try closing the drawer.
