The cd door won't open on the tower


CD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

I have a dvd+r stuck in my delldesktop tower


shutdown the computer. There should be a small hole (tiny pinhole) on the front panel of the DVD player. Unravel a paper clip and insert it into the hole. Keep pressing and it will manually eject the DVD player tray. Hopefully you'll be able to get access to the DVD and remove it.

How do I open the door to my CD/DVD player on my eMachine Tower. I use to know how but as an old lady I need help remebering now. please help


There should be a button just below the cd tray on the front of the tower. If I remember correctly, on E-Machines there is a black bar just below the tray, and the button is a small section of this bar. If you press along the bar you should find a place that presses in. That will be the button to eject the tray.

Another way to do this is to click on "My Computer", there should either be a link on your desktop, or in the start menu. In this window you should see your disk drive, usually "D:\". Right click on this icon, and there should be a menu option called "Eject", which will open the drive for you.

Thanks,
John Vickers

How to play a cd


Hello,

Usually the DVD drive or the CD drive has a very small button on the front side of the Drive, if you see a button press it, the tray will come out and you will be able to put the cd on the tray and than press that button again it will take the cd in and will play for you.

However if you feel that difficult, try doing this,
simply go to MY COMPUTER, there you can see your dvd-drive or cd-drive, you can right click on the drive and click on "eject" it will eject the tray just like a normal dvd or cd player and you can insert the disc to play.

if there is anything else i can help you with please let me know.

Thank you.

How do i eject a stuck cd from gateway one 710 series I have tried the eject button on the keyboard but will not give it up...


Have you tried the eject button from the tray? If all that you need is a tool to eject the tray without touching the tower, I suggest you to go to this link and download the Eject-CD freeware runtime file EjectCD.exe - approx 30kB. Alternative if your tray is locked and can not open with the above methods, you have to locate a small hole in the front panel of the tray and put into that hole something like a connector (for papers) or a strong wire in order to push the internal system to open.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Gateway computer LX series need to recycle power before it will go into post.


The only reason I can see in a no POST issue is because of a defective hardware in your computer.

1. Try to remove all the cables at the back of your computer tower and power cycle it for 15 seconds.
2. Plug the power cord back in and the monitor cable only then start your computer.
3. Put the devices one-by-one to your computer tower until you see the faulty device.
4. If no faulty device detected after connecting all the connection at the back of your computer tower.
5. Try to open up your computer tower and reseat your Video card, memory, HD cables and CPU as well.

Let's investigate if the problem will reoccur.
