Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop ?

I have a Dell Studio 17 and the eject button for the CD slot doesn't work. There is supposed to be a pinhole for manual ejection--where is it?!!! thanks

Answers :

If this has a small hole, it will be on the front of the CD. Each manufacturer seems to put it in a different place, but I would look above the eject button. Failing that, look on the opposite side of the drawer. The hole should be on one side or another. I have seen some CD drawers where the hole is actually right at the top of the drawer--hard to see.
To eject, insert the end of a large paper clip straight in. You will feel resistance and as you push, the drawer will open slightly.
