CD/DVD drive

HP Recommended
Pavilion 23
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My cd/dvd tray does not eject when I press the eject button, nor does it open when right clicking its drive letter and choosing "Eject" in File Explorer.  I have tried pressing the eject button before Windows starts - as was suggested by a previous help suggestion...but it is hard to know at what point during the startup process I should press the eject button, because it is hard to tell just exactly when Windows starts...?  Or maybe press and hold eject button?  Thanks for any help.

I would suggest you uninstall the driver as explained here.    Upon re-boot it will find the device and install.

Thank you for your reply, but after uninstalling the drive as per your instructions and then reinstalling the cd drive still will not open.  What should I try next?

@ShelbyMF,

Here is a dialogue that mentions testing during startup.  That would mean continued pressing of the eject button as power is applied until the boot process is complete.

Following the process described in our last correspondence did not eject the drive tray.  I am thinking a new drive is the best option at this point.
