stuck dvd drive? Answered

i own a compaq brand laptop and the dvd/cd drive stopped ejecting. it won't eject by pushing the button or useing my computer to open it. it has a light on the drive that will light up when i try to eject the disc how do i resolve this?


Look at the side of the drive and you should see a tiny hole. Unbend a paper-clip to give yourself an inch of straight wire. Poke the wire straight into the hole and then push gently. The DVD drive should spring open.

yea it is right next to the button that u push to open the drive. but banging it worked.

hey forget it i fixed it and all those who were think "open he computer up and manually eject it" your wrong, i did it the cartoon way! I just started hitting it! and guess what it opened up but now focus your min to the question below this one that is the real one(well this was real then i fixed oh u know what i mean!)
