Problems with CD Drive eject on HP Pavilion

By kristindewey ·
HELP!! I'm a novice when it comes to computers and problems. I have a 3 year old HP Pavillion a6000n desk top, with Vista (that came pre-loaded), that will not eject the disk when you push the button. It also will not eject if you do a "Cntrl + E." After pushing the button or doing "Cntrl + E" seven or eight times it will finally eject.
Is this a driver problem, and what can I do to fix it??

Whats the orientation of drive

by JamesRL In reply to Problems with CD Drive ej ...

I have similar problems, because my CD drive is oriented vertically.

There is a hole in the front of many drives, big enough for a safety pin to be pushed into. I use that to manually eject when the drive doesn't respond to the button or "Ctrl" E -does yours have one?
