NEW LAPTOP CANT OPEN CD DRAWER, WHERE THE HELL IS THE BUTTON, IT SEEMS STUCK.


When first powering on this laptop, you should push the button on the left side where the CD/DVD drive is located. You should also push F10 to stop it from loading an OS and it will enter into bios where the CD tray can be opened.

Removing ASUS CG8350 cd drive


Facing the front of the computer is how you determine the Left side, and Right side.
The Left Side Panel removes.

Two screws to loosen. One towards the Top, on the back edge of the left Side Panel; one towards the Bottom.
(Screws should no remove all the way, unless clip is missing from screw)

There's a Fingerpull formed out of the back edge, of the left Side Panel. Pull back, remove.

There should be plastic clips formed out of the Front Panel, that when depressed, or gently pulled out on; will enable removing Front Panel.

WATCH as it may NOT just be a cover.
The Power On LED light (Asus), plus Power On switch, and Harddrive activity LED light, may be attached to the Front Panel.

This is a different Asus desktop computer case, but allows me to show you the clips I am referring to,

http://pctuning.tyden.cz/hardware/pc-sestavy/22300-asus-rog-tytan-seriova-kraska-za-60-tisic-korun?start=5

Scroll down to the photo of the open computer case.
See the three dark plastic tabs on the Front Panel?
One towards the Top, one in the Middle, and one towards the Bottom.

For this type the clips are gently eased out. (They are PLASTIC)

I could be wrong, but I imagine the blue round looking 'knobs', on the side where the optical drive bay is; turn to the Left to remove.
I think the blue round part is a screw head.

Could be wrong. May be they are just gently pulled out on, to release the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

Power unplugged to computer.

Im missing something on the left side of my computer what is it


LOL, it was probably just a PCMCIA slot that had a piece in there to avoid showing an open space. If you never used it, don't sweat it.
