Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook ?
DVD won't open to accept a disc.
\015 I can't get the dvd drive to open. Physically. When I press the tiny button on the side of the laptop the dvd does not open. I can't insert a disc.\015
There should be a very small hole near the button. Straighten out a paper clip and push it in the hole. It will open the tray.
