CD stuck inside my laptop

I inserted a software CD for a wireles HP printer using the CD/DVD tray and when I opened the tray to take the CD out the CD did not come out and is stuck inside my computer.  The tray opens and closes normally but the CD is stuck inside.  How did I get the CD out of my computer?

that depends on what kind of notebook you have, a model number and serial number whould be helpfull, alot of the new drives are held in by 1 screw which is on the bottom of the notebook. if you slide the drive out maybe you can get the disk.

CD stuck inside my laptop

Hello...I just bought this HP G61-327CL notebook on Oct.23 of this year.  There are several screws on the bottom of the computer...is there any way to know which one to loosen.  I really don't want to take all the screws out and take thr whole back cover off because I would probably really mess things up then.  Thanks so much for your help.

.

From this url ( HP Services Media Library ) for HP G61-300 Notebook PC series, select "Optical drive (CSR)". It should provide the video and detailed procedures for you to access the optical drive.

.

Have fun ...

This really worked well.  Was able to retrieve my CD and then replace the optical drive.  When I rebooted it reinstalled the drive software successfully.  Thanks so much!

@steveharper777,

 

I understand that two disks were inserted at once (one on top of the other) and now they are stuck in the drive.

 

Does the DVD drive tray open at all?

What is the product number? NOTE: Do NOT provide the serial number.
