CD disc tray stuck

\015 Hi - tapped my foot on CD tray slide button & when it came out, I knocked it out of it's slot. We tried to reinsert but now it's stuck 1/2 way in; won't come out either. Any suggestions how to remove & reinsert?\015

Answers :

Try pulling it out hard it might just be caught .. i know you thinkin what if it damages my comp but i really think its your only option now i mean if you send it to a tech they do the same thing as for attaching it make sure the grooves all line up then onl put it in part way and press the tray eject button twice so its pulling the tray back in if that dont work just push it in all the way and tryit out
