Having problems with your Dell Studio 15 Laptop ?

Cd stuck in drive

\015 I have a cd stuck in my studio 15 n windows will not start up...how do I eject it? I can't find a hole to put a pin in anywhere\015

Answers :

Hi there.
There should be a very small hole next to or near the eject button, you will have to look very close. When you find it get a large paper clip and straighten it out, push one end in the small hole and push until it ejects.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
If the drive doesn't have a tray, try holding down the eject button. I think you would have to take the drive out from the laptop and possibly take the drive apart to get it unstuck.

Note that it may void your warranty if you have warranty on it, if you do have warranty on the computer it would be better to contact dell directly. They might replace the drive if its faulty.

also in windows you can try right click on the cd /dvd drive in my computer and select eject.
