The obvious - Use the eject button when the system is powered on.
If that does not work, use a straightened paperclip and manually eject via tiny hole in the front. Works on or off. gl

SOURCE: I installed windows 7 and now my function keys don't work

You need to install the drivers, windows does not recognize these additional buttons until the proper drivers are loaded. Depending on manufacturer windows 7 drivers may or may not be available. Microsoft did something smart with windows 7 by allowing you to use windows vista drivers in windows 7. So if there are no win 7 drivers just download and install the vista drivers. Good luck!

You can try cleaning the eye of the drive with a cotton swab and alcohol gently a few times and see if it starts reading the discs.Clean it gently in circular motions 2 or 3 times.If that doesn't work the drive may need to be replaced.

HOW TO EJECT A DISC IN LENOVO IDEAPAD 330


Sarthak Sharma and Carla Bunis want more answers
there are many ways to EJECT
1: the botton on the try , is marked EJECT
do so>>
2: the tiny hole on front of same tray use unbent paper clip, stuffed in hole and try ejects manually.even drive chassis in hand. by self.
3: windows is this ,not stated,but windows explorer
right click the DRIVE D:>? and click REJECT.
4: in windows, make sure the device manager does not list, the DVD as dead,red/yellow or unknown.
if device manager shows the drive missing or bad you need to get the new driver for it.
so right click the drive (be online) and click update drive.

no full model number stated, 330 is not full. number. so says Lenovo.

btw even a empty tray will eject.
if the disk is cracked or label fell , then only way
2 might work and cleaning the jam by HAND.
if way 2 fails.
only total dismantling the DVD drive can fix it.
true jams are hard work. ok?> physical world deal there.

not one poster here said, the button is dead.
saving this post from going to ALL wAYS it can fail and long.

Computer crash


One of the big problems with laptops is they come with the operating system repair on the reserve partition and you may not have a physical Windows Operating System CD/DVD disc to install the OS from scratch. Many times Dell allows for a back Up disc set to be made when the computer is first set up, you may not have done a back up set? Nevertheless; you can try to do a F8 when starting the computer. Select the REPAIR option and/or Safe Mode. Run your options. If that failed to work; you will have get a CD/DVD Operating System like Windows 7 or 8.1 and install the OS from scratch.

Error while ejecting dvd drive


Hi,
It seems that there is a problem with a software that is been installed relating to the burning of the disc or the system is infected with virus.

If you have not installed any software then I recommend you to format and install the OS or at least do a OS repair by booting from the OS disc .

MS FIXit, Resetting Upper and lower Filters (XP, Vista and 7)
First... try to use the MS Fixit (for Vista) if you are on the computer having the problem)...

Otherwise, here are the manual steps (overview):

1) Uninstall the CD/DVD drive in Device Manager and DO NOT RESTART the computer.

2) Uninstall your CD burning software (make sure you have the installation disc or you can resinstall from Start, Programs, PC Help and Tools, Recovery Manager (or Driver/Application Recovery). If you don't have the installation discs, skip this step - it might still work).

3) Open the registry editor (Start -> Run -> enter Regedit) ... might want to make a backup of the registry at this point.

4) Open the following keys:

+ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
+ SYSTEM
+ CurrentControlSet (or the current control set with lowest number if that is all that is listed)
+ Control
+ Class

5) Select 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318. It has to be this exact key - make sure you can see the last numbers!!!

6) Delete the UpperFilter and or the LowerFilters value in the right window if either exists.

7) RESTART the computer - this step is important. Wait for Windows to find and install the CD/DVD drive you removed earlier.

8) Reinstall your burning software and restart the computer again.
