Welcome to Fixya.

There are ways for you to resolve this issue:

  • Turn off the computer
  • Get a paper clip and find the "pinhole" on the front of your disk drive.
Or
  • Turn off the computer
  • Turn it back on then tap on the "DEL" (on some systems its "F1" or "F2") key repeatedly until you reach the BIOS mode
  • Try to eject the disk tray
If none of these works, then I regret to inform you that the disk drive needs to be replaced. Here's Acer's support page for more information :

If the eject button on the CD drive tray does not work then -
You can open the CD drive tray manually by a straighten paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole in the drive tray. Push the paper clip gently into this hole and the drive tray will pop out. You can then pull the drive tray out fully.
If you still have problems, then the CD drive may be faulty and needs to be replaced.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with a cd in disk drive. The door will open but disk won't come out. What do I need to do to remove it?


The CD is loose in the drive. You need to remove the CD drive from the computer and then remove the metal case off the drive then you can remove the CD. Put the metal case back on the drive and install the CD drive back into the computer.

Cannot open my laptop... Did everything from removing the battery, cleaning the fan but still screen says non system disk or disk error replace n strike any key when ready.... Help pls


Please try the following:

1. Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the CD-ROM drive. If there is no CD or remove the floppy disk from the floppy drive.

2. Change your computer's boot sequence. To do this, you must change your computer's setup and the option that controls which device your computer uses to start from. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed. Normally, this would be your hard drive.

What if disk drive does not open during system says reboot and selesct proper booot device


Sounds like you may have a CD/DVD in the drive that is stuck and/or not inserted properly. There should be a small, pin-size opening on the front plate of the CD drive. Find a large paper clip, bend out one end of it then insert into the pin-hole. Push it until the drive pops open.

Trying to boot asus with windows xp cdrom. unable to boot


When you first turn on your computer watch the screen it will prompt you at the bottom usually to press the F2 or sometimes DEL key. Look through your BIOS sometimes under BOOT OPTIONS, sometimes in the HDD configuration. Your system needs to be set to BOOT FROM CD as the first boot option or USB then CD then your HDD. If your HDD is set to boot in the number 1 spot this would be stopping you from boot from that drive. Other problems would be bad CD drive, or a bad damaged install CD. If it's on now or if you can boot to windows see if you can open the disk there now. If you can see the cd in the drive from windows or if when you put it in it starts the setup we know your drive and disk work. If not then you will have to figure out if it's the drive or if it's the CD. If you have a new CD/DVD from the store with music or a movie on it put it in see if it reads/plays it. If it will open play other disks then it's the install CD. If you can open read it from another computer you can make a copy and drive to boot from the CD you just burnt. Let me know if this helped you or if you have more questions.

Acard duplicator - 'Source drive not ready'


> source drive not ready

When you push the button to open/close the drawer, does it work,
i.e., is there electrical power reaching the drive?

Did you put a disk into the "source" drive?
Is the same disk recognized when you put that disk into any other computer?
If so, then the "source" drive is damaged, and needs to be repaired/replaced.

I own eMachine Notebook e525 and it won't read any disks. I have tried multiple disks such as music cds, installation cds and video dvds. None of them read or open. There isn't even an icon for the...


> there is no icon for the CD-drive

Probably means that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the CD-ROM drive
* no "data" is being transferred to/from the drive
* the electronics inside the CD-ROM drive have "died"

Check the "power" and "data" connectors.

If necessary, replace the drive with a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop When I insert a disk in the CD drive, nothing comes up on the screen to ask me what I want to do with it. I have tried different disks. Recently was one that came with a router...


Two possibilities; a dead CD drive or a corrupted device driver (Windows likes to trash these so we don't get too bored).
Since it isn't operating anyhow, I would open the Control Panel, open the System folder, click on the Hardware tab, select Device Manager, find DVD/CD (ROM) drives and then delete the appropriate drive.
Reboot your system with nothing in the CD drive and watch for a dialog window telling you that Windows has found a 'new device' and is installing the software. If it does this successfully, it should finally tell you the device is ready to use although if the driver is not found on the hard drive in the library, it may ask for an installation disk. You should have either factory disks or a set you made when the system was new. If you don't, you will have to download them, best from the Dell website.
Good luck-
