Having problems with your Acer Aspire X1200 Desktop PC - Athlon X2 Dual Core 2.5GHz, 4GB DDR2, 320GB, DVDRW, V ... ?

There is not an emergency DVD eject hole that is evident anywhere on the front or side of the Acer x1200 desktop. I have done this on other computers before so know what to look for. When I push the button to open the drive or click eject with the right mouse button, all the drive does is click several times. So, I need help from someone familiar with that particular computer.


Answers :

Is your optical drive hidden by a panel? Some computers have this cover that should flip down when the drive opens and close when you close the drive. If this is the case, you need to get behind the cover to find the manual eject hole. For whatever reason, I can't get the Acer manual to load today so I can't quickly check how to remove the entire faceplate from the computer.

http://support.acer.com/ is a good starting place.

Since the drive is recognized by the computer, I suspect the cover may need adjustment (or the cd tray isn't pushing hard enough).

I hope this helps.
