There is a very small hole in the cd tray, left or right side of the eject button of the CD/DVD tray.... insert a very small needle or a hardwire of 2 inches length and the cd will automatically come out of the tray..

A cd is stuck in my lap top the tray will come out but the cd will not

With the tray open, visually inspect to ensure the cd is still in line with the spindle. Something long and thin (such as a thin knife or spatula) slide it between the top of the drive and the top of the cd.

Carefully tip the tool down to try and release the CD from the spindle. Do not attempt to force it! If it is not jammed in the drive, the CD should drop free. Carefully pull the CD out of the drive.

Look at the CD to see if it has been damaged from the drive. If the CD will not come out, it needs to be take to a repair service.

Laptop dvd drawer stuck closed

The front of the DVD drive, (Tray), has a small hole. It is to the right of the button you push to open the DVD drive.

Use a partially straightened out paper clip to insert into the hole.
This is a manual override.

When the paper clip is inserted into the hole, you will feel pressure, when the paper clip is so far in. Gently push the paper clip in further, until the tray pops out.

Follow with cleaning the DVD drive, with an appropriate product. It could be the laser optical eye is dirty, or it may be that the DVD drive is at the last of it's 'Life-Cycle'.

A DVD drive is a mechanical device, and is rated in hours of usage.

DVD stuck, computer won't turn back on

If you look at the door of the CD/DVD tray/shelf, you should see a little hole. Stick a paper clip into the hole and it will pop out the CD/DVD tray/shelf and you can get your DVD back. I would call Gateway support to fix the rest of it. If it is still under warranty, they can send out a tech to fix it.

I cant get my lap 2003 laptop to connect to the wireless inter-net and the cd/dvd drive door will not open

Check if your wi-fi is enabled. if it is, then it should have a remark that WIRELESS NETWORK is available and have a link to CONNECT. then you will be prompted for a password if connection is encrypted.

Your cd/dvd door might have stuck up for long time of not using it. Gently push it while pressing the eject button. It should eject manually.

Cd stuck

There should be a little pin hole on the outside of the CD tray where you can insert a paper clip or something similar to manually eject the CD.
