OK, so this isn’t exactly a problem that has plague man since the dawn of time, but it is something that bothers me about laptop CD/DVD drives that is so simple to solve.
Here is the problem, to open the CD/DVD drive on most laptops you need to push a button on the right side of the computer that is flush mounted, under the edge of the laptop. So it’s hard to find in a hurry and normally means you are running your hand up and down the side of the laptop.
Even worst, if you close the door and your finger hits the button, the drive opens right back up. It’s a pain sometimes.
Well, now with less than 30 seconds and a marker, you can fix this problem. All you do is add an “index” mark on the side of the keyboard that is directly over the button of the drive.
Step 1: Step One
Find the button for your CD/DVD drive and with a permanent marker, place a quick dot over the button.
