Unscrew what ever screws are holding it in place and open up the cd drive manually. if it is a laptop cd drive, there should only be a few screw on the cd drive itself befor you can retrieve your disc.
normally located on the top and sides. be warned the opening up the cd drive that way will void the warenty. and i cant be held responsible if it brakes or gets damaged in the process.

How do I eject a disk from my dell model 1737 studio lap top(window vista) . It made noise are clicking sound when it went in.


Hello Reg,

The CD/DVD rom is tray type then use a pin to eject the tray. There is small hole in front of tray plate.

Insert the pin in the small home and press smoothly and the tray will eject .

If the CD/DVD rom is different type then use long steel V shape clip to pull the disc.

My Dell laptop #S1555 won't eject a CD?


Software can lock the CD drive preventing you from ejecting. If this is the problem, turn off the machine, turn on, when the DELL screen flashes, push the eject button several times and the CD will eject.

If that doesn't work, look for a small hole the size of a paper clip and gently push a paper clip into it. When you meet resistance, the drawer will start to open. You can then pull it open carefully. The computer can be off when you try this.

If neither work, then you might have a jammed CD, i.e. incorrectly inserted. You can try to force the drawer open with your fingers but don't use so much force you strip the plastic gears.

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


Supposing that the Studio 15 / 17 has a slot loading drive:

You can either press the eject button above the keyboard (the touch sensitive one)

or

Go to 'Computer' in Vista and right click the CD/DVD drive. Then click 'Eject'.

This should work.
