Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?
Cd stuck inside laptop
\015 Even after pushing eject button and Ctrl-J, going to Windows Media Player and pressing eject; error message shows 'stop processing using dvd-rw drive' there is nothing accessing this drive\015\012\015\012\015\012I cannot eject my cd out of the cd player on my laptop\015
There is a small hole, usually near the eject button. Unbend a paper clip and carefully push the paper clip into the hole, try to keep it straight. drive should pop right out.
Thank you for the advice about sticking a paperclip in the hole by the eject button. I was scared of being injuried. But it worked!!! I used the large paperclip and the CD popped out within seconds!
