Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

My cd draw is stuck in the cd drive. How do i get it open


Answers :

You should find a paperclip and straighten it out, on the front of the CD drive there will be a small hole just big enough for the straightened paperclip to fit in. Push it in until you feel tension and it should start to manually open.
You should find a little hole on the CD drive itself.
\015\012If you straigthen out a paperclip and push the paperclip in gently to the little hole on the CD drive you should be able to open your CD-ROM drawer.

\015\012Do not force it, if you cant do this and the drawer doesn't open easily then you need to take your laptop in to your nearest computer repair centre and ask them to take a look.
