How to Remove DVD From an Acer Laptop

Most Acer laptops come with a DVD drive--the Acer Aspire One is an exception. Removing a DVD from an Acer laptop is as simple as putting one in. However, there may come a time when you have problems ejecting a DVD. In that case, there are three possible ways to remove it from your Acer laptop, one of which should work for you.

Step

Turn on the power to your Acer and press and release the "Eject" button on the side of your CD/DVD drive. If the CD/DVD drive door does not open, then move on to Step 2.

Step

Click on "Start" on your desktop and then on "My Computer" or "Computer." When the window opens, right click on the CD/DVD listing. If your computer is able to read the DVD that is in the drive, the name of the disc will be listed there.

Step

Right click on the DVD drive, and scroll down to select "Eject" from the drop-down menu. At this point, the CD/DVD drive door should open and eject the disc. If this does not open the drive door, then move on to Step 4.

Step

Take a paperclip and bend one end out straight. Insert the straight end of the clip into the small pinhole that is on your CD/DVD drive door next to the eject button. This will manually open up the drive door and eject the DVD.
