DVD Tray stuck in

Hi - I've got a dvd in the pc but the tray won't come out when I press the button . I've put an opened out paper clip in the little hole but that hasn't done the trick. Anything else I can do please??

Sounds as though you might have a disk jamming the tray.

Keep trying the paper clip method BUT don't do it with the system switched on (for obvious reasons).

You may eventually have to take the drive out and open it up enough to free the tray.

right clicking the drive in My Computer then selecting Eject ? If not, worth a try.

Switch the computer off. Restart it and, as the system is whirring up, keep pressing the cd tray button. That worked for me.
