Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

My dvd/cd drive does not open even if i try "eject" through the explorer

Answers :

If you have a paperclip you an unbend it and stick it in the front of the CDrom drives faceplate. Their should be a small hole on it just below the tray. push it straight in and it should pop right open.

This will not harm or break it. sometimes they do that and its very annoying. I have a brandnew one that does it sometimes.
