Question about Computers & Internet
It must be hardware problem with the CD rom. There are few gears inside the unit with some plastic levers that regulate opening and closing of the Tray. If the problem persists, you will need to repair or replace the CD rom. In the meantime, as a temporary solution, straighten a paper clip (a a long needle), push in through the tiny hole just below the tray while you press the eject (Open) button. You'll need to press inside the pin/clip with possible force and it will automatically eject out. Push in the pin/needle straight, you don't need to find anything inside the hole, just push it straight in.
Let me know if you need further help.
Thanks for using FixYa.
