disc stuck in disc drive of an old Compaq Presario 4814
« on: May 15, 2007, 06:18:49 PM »
I have a disc stuck in the disc drive of an old Compaq Presario 4814. Anyone have any ideas of how to get this disc out of my disc drive?? - Please!!! I can't find any holes where the disc could be pushed on and it can't be reached with needle nosed pliers.

    Is there a small hole in the front of the drive? If so a paper clip can be inseted to manually unlock the mechanism.
    Please post as much information about your computer, operating system, and problem as possible, what happened prior to problems, etc. Too much info is OK, too little is pointless! Don't just say "My computer doesn't work. What's wrong?"
