Having problems with your Dell Studio 17 Laptop ?

Won't eject cd and none of the touch buttons having to do with a cd playing like the volume, etc don't work

Answers :

That's a known issue with the Studio laptop. I have the same laptop (almost the same- 15.4) and I experience the same difficulties a lot. Dell has some issues with their DVD drives.

The most affective solution I've found was to restart the computer, and click Fn+eject (it's the F10 button if I'm not mistaken)

That's the least intrusive solution I know
