You will have better luck on a Windows PC solution if you post this under a non-Macintosh forum. Also, please include what model Acer Aspire. Acer has had literally hundreds of different model computers called "Aspire", since the mid 1990s.
However, Windows PCs with Internal CD and DVD drives, in general, will have an emergency eject lever on them.
1. Look at the front of the DVD drive to find a small hole. It will be about the right size to stick a straightened out paper clip into it. 2. Do That. Straighten out a paperclip and stick it straight in until you feel a resistance. 3. Keep pushing on that until the drawer of the DVD drive opens enough to grab it with your fingers. 4. Slowly pull the drawer open to retrieve your disc. 5. Seek hardware repair or replace the drive if it continues to not operate via the push button on the front of the drive.
You'll need to take the stereo out of the dashboard. Unplug stereo and remove screws holding cabinet to the guts. Remove top of cabinet so you can see the cd and mechanisms inside the unit. Replug in the unit and push eject, watching mechanisms on both sides of the cd carrier to see if one is moving faster than the other. If eject works then you may have an alignment problem with the stereo - it's possible that you may have just fixed that too, so re - insert cd and immediately eject to ensure proper operation of the mechanism. If cd does not eject, get a small bladed screwdriver and manually turn the gearing on the side of the cd tray, going from side to side until you have proceeded far enough to pull out cd. Now take the stereo to a repair shop for estimate - or buy a new stereo to install, depending on the cost of the one you're having trouble with!
Desktop CD/DVD drives have an emergency eject feature, which requires a straightened paper-clip.
Shut the machine down.
Look carefully at the front of the drive, you'll see a small hole. Straighten your paper clip so you have a piece of wire with a handle. Insert this directly into the hole, and push slowly and firmly. As you do this, the drive tray should open at the same time. Once it's open far enough, grab the tray and pull it all the way out, and remove the disk. The disk may have been damaged by being jammed into the drive, but maybe not.
Pry it open with a paper clip directly in the middle. Don't worry it won't break the player. Once the door is open enough to grab with your fingers, then slowly and carefully pull the door back as far as it will go, then press eject button and it should put itself back on track.
Do you mean that a CD or DVD is stuck in the CD/DVD drive?
If it does not eject by pushing the eject buttom on the front of the CD/DVD drive, then straighten a paper clip and insert it into the tiny hole just below the drive tray and push the paper clip gently in the hole. The drive tray will pop out slightly, then grab the tray and pull it out until you can remove the CD or DVD disk.
You didn't go far enough in with the paperclip. Some drives, the eject mechanism is an inch deep or more. Just keep pushing it in and the CD will come out.
You won't damage it no matter how far you push it in ...the "barrel" for the emergency eject does not connect to anything electrical - it just has a switch somewhere down in the tube that you have to reach, which triggers the drive door to open.
