Lost disc in laptop

\015 Help, i put a disc in draw of laptop but must not have put it in properly the disc has gone inside the laptop somewhere can you help please\015

Answers :

Theres only three things to do
\015\0121 theres a small pinhole to manually open the draw just stick in a toothpick and the draw should open see if you can see the disk and shake it out(if it fell in so easy.
\015\0122 get a screw driver and start unscrewing the bottom panel(sometimes theres screws under the rubber pads on the bottom when you think their out just slowly wiggle if theres more youll feel it carefully of cousre after taking out battery hard drive and ram and if you need to unscrew any circuit boards lift them slightly just enough to get the disk to make sure no wires are pull out cos there will be wires that connect everything to each other, its easier than it sounds if you get cold fett stop and put it back together. also by doing this you void warranty but if thats expired then thats what id do rather than option 3 Pay a store to do the same thing, although i would expect it to cost $20-$45 and i wouldnt pay more than twenty but you might get rip offs
\015\012These are your choices
\015\012I hope you feel well advised
\015\012Let me know how you go
