Reboot & proper boot device how to slove the proble
1, to open your cd drive manually, get a tooth pick, look closely onto your cd drive i mean where the cd comes out from when ejected, you will see a very tiny hole put the tooth pick inside the hole push it in a bit hard then bring out if it does not try a tinier object it will come out.

2, if the system was on when u disconnected the belt it might have burnt the hdd or has caused error on the hdd, off the computer and reboot if no solution, reformatt the system if it does not work, get a new hdd. thanks
