Im a new laptop user. The only way that Ive figured out

This answer was rated:

I'm a new laptop user. The only way that I've figured out how to open the DVD drawer is to go to computer, right click on DVD drive and click eject. If my laptop crashes with a CD in the drive, is there another way to get the drawer to open so I can get the offending CD or DVD out? I have HP ProBook.

Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your question. How exciting a new laptop I am happy for you. Can you please tell me the exact model number of this machine please so I can check out to see if it has fail safes and to know what I am looking at please?Smile

Sure - I have to find the receipt.

It should be located under the machine as well. I will be waiting.

Thanks. It's an HP ProBook 4540 Notebook

It looks like there is a manual release. Go to this link and you will see all the options on manually removing disk. You will need to scroll down to the middle of the page to locate it.


Let me know if you can see that Debbie. Smile
