Acer 5100 laptop dvd tray isn't opening

\015 I'm not sure if it's an overheating problem as the laptop was on my legs. I heard this series overheats quicker than other top laptop manufacturers. Please help me!!!\015

Answers :

You may be absolutely correct about the heat issue. As a backup plan be aware that there is a small hole next to the tray which will accept the tip of a straightened out paper clip. Just slide it in a wee bit and the drawer will open manually.
