Having problems with your Lenovo 3000 Y410 Laptop ?

Cd/dvd drive does not open and cd stops in the middle of running

\015 On Lenovo Y410 the CD/ Dvd drive gets stuck and does not open. If I am lucky to get it opened and put a cd in it. It would run for sometime and than stop by itself. If i have to change the cd/dvd drive, how do i take it out. There is a lock and unlock slide button below and i tried to unlock it and remove it, but was not able to do so.\015

Answers :

  1. \015\012Step 1\015\012Power down the computer. You won't need power for this and when inserting metal objects into the computer it is a good idea to keep it turned off.
  2. \015\012
  3. \015\012Step 2\015\012Take your paperclip and straighten it. You probably won't need the whole thing, but straighten most of it.
  4. \015\012
  5. \015\012Step 3\015\012Look around the front of the drive. There should be a very small hole there (just wide enough for the paperclip). This hole will probably have no markings and seem to serve no purpose.
  6. \015\012
  7. \015\012Step 4\015\012Push the paperclip into the hole. There is a button inside there that will release the lock on the CD/DVD tray. It's pretty far in there so push lightly until the paperclip won't go any further. You'll see the tray move a little.
  8. \015\012
  9. \015\012Step 5\015\012Now you'll need to get that tray open. Use something small and flat like a credit card, screwdriver, fingernails, or a dull knife (the type used to spread butter) to pry open the tray until you can get your fingers around it to pull it open.
  10. \015\012
  11. \015\012Step 6\015\012Pull the tray open. It will give some resistance, but this should not hurt your drive. Get the disc out and close the drive again.
  12. \015\012
  13. \015\012Step 7\015\012Reboot the computer afterwards to reset the drive. This step may not be necessary, but it's usually a good idea to reboot after manually opening the drive to make sure it resets and is able to be used normally again.
\015\012THANK YOU
\015\012PLEASE RATE ME....
The lock/unlock you mention is not for the DVD drive but for the battery. To pull open the DVD drive, you need to unscrew three screws. One is the one nearest to the DVD drive bay. The other one is near the subwoofer. The next one is in the recess next to the white label. Then only can you pull out the drive.
