For the conventional laptop having tray like DVD Drive, have the facility to eject the tray out to remove the CD/DVD by using pin hole facility, when it got stuck inside. But now a days most of the DELL and other laptops are coming with slot load DVD drives.
These slot load drives are very convenient, to insert any disc inside you just need to press the disc to go inside the slot and to eject only pressing or touching the eject button does the work. Anyways what will happen if the disc stuck inside ? There are no pin hole or any other facility to remove the disc.
How to Eject Stuk DVD from Slot Load DVD Drive:
One easy solution is that, hold the laptop with DVD drive facing down and gently pat on the backside or top of the laptop to make the disc come out ! But this will not work in all situation and even this method is quite dangerous for laptop.
So here is the solution:
- Switch off the laptop
- Press the power button to switch it on.
- Instantly after pressing the power button, start pressing ” F2 ” key on the keyboard to enter the BIOS setting.
- Now press/touch the ” eject button ” of the DVD drive and now you are done, you will get the disc out.
If any how these steps does not work, then try calling DELL service. Donot try to open the DVD drive on your own , otherwise it will void the warranty.
F2 key works with DELL laptops and for other laptops try pressing the key which open BIOS setting of the motherboard and finally press the eject button to make the disc come out. Hope the solution work for other laptops too.
