    Until today had no problem using CD drive. Now cannot get CD to eject. Have rebooted and restored to 4 weeks back. Nothing fixes it. I have WIN Me.

    2 things you can do. First go to MY COMPUTER and see your CD drive. RIGHT click on it and say EJECT. did it work? If not try this. Look at the front of your CD drive, right around where the tray comes out, you should see a small hole. Unbend a paper clip and put the straight portion of it into that hole and keep pushing it in. be sure to give it a little force. It should push your cd tray open enough for you to get your CD out if one is stuck. Pull it out all the way and then try and use the button to close it. If it doesnt push it back in and try and use button to open it.
