Question about Packard Bell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I cant get my dvd drive to eject, and its not recognising that there is a disc in the drive. I do not have a small hole to stick a pin inside as instructed by others as my pc is a PB OneTwo L5710 and as far as i can see there is no hole as the dvd drive doesnt have a tray, it simply ejects the disc itself. Any help will be appriciated! Thankyou!

Dvd/cd will not eject,,,, what is the solution?????


First , you need to locate the small circle hole on your dvd then
use a pin (make sure that the pin that you're going to use will match going to the small hole located on the dvd )
Second insert pin inside the small hole and once the tip of the pin reaches the end inside the hole pull the pin and then after pulling the pin automatically the dvd drive will eject/open

You don't need to worry because it is 100 percent safe it doesnt matter if its the unit is off or switch on

DVD drive will not open


There should be a manual open button on the front of the drive. Look on the face for a small indent of hole. You will need a pin or something small. Stick it in there and gently push it and it should pop the tray out. Let me know if you have any trouble or can't locate it.

DVD will not eject


To eject a disc.
  1. Use the eject option in the menu bar by selecting open from the drop down menu.
  2. Press the eject or F12 key on the keyboard.
  3. Open the drive face plate and insert the end of a paperclip into the small hole under the drive tray area. This will pop the tray open.

My disc drive wont open, i tryed hitting it, prying, and even tearing off the front off my tower! any ideas?


in front of your cd rom disc drive you will see a very small hole, try to insert a small sharp object or pin that will fit in the hole, that is the bypass key to open the disk tray

Dear! It is the fault about belt of a CD/ DVD Rom. You can remove this fault if you can change the belt that is inside the CD/ DVD Rom. And if you want to eject your disk as soon as possible? Use a pin and put inside the very small hole of CD/ DVD Rom and press under your controle slowly. Your disk will open.
Thank you.

Dell xps m1330 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."

My dvd cant eject


You need to provide more information.

A CD-ROM/DVD drive only needs power to eject a disc. It does not care if the drivers are installed, for that function, it only needs power.

If this is a new drive it might be a bad one. If this is a drive you have used before, it might have gone bad.

If you have a Disc stuck in the drive, you can always use a paper clip to preform a manual eject. Just unbend a paper clip, and stick it in the pin size hole on the front of the drive. Keep pushing until the drive door opens.

If this is new drive, make sure it is connected correctly.
