Unable to open DVD drawer

\015 Unable to open DVD/CD Rom drawer\015

Answers :

If you take a paper clip and straighten it, there is a little hole in the front of the CD drive, push the paper clip into it and your CD drive will get pushed open. This will get a CD out, but will not fix it.

Try re-seating, or connecting a different power cable to the back of the CD drive. Does your PC even recognize that the CD drive is present?

Most of the time the CD drive needs to be replaced.... they are very cheap.
Look exactly on the front panel,ther is a small hole to open. use something to put inside and push, tray should be had to leave.
