Manually eject with a paperclip or pin/needle

DERP, sorry, I have been awake for too many hours tongue.gif

Get a butter knife and pry the thing open.

Just find another optical drive laying around, change boot order and priority to that drive, and install windows. Then eject.

USB Linux boot should work as well if you can't/don't find another optical.

Quick question though: Why did you run memtest BEFORE installing windows?

Also, I am ashamed at my fellow members for not reading ANY of this thread before posting. Totally uncalled for.

OP, since you fixed the issue (yes, I can read :b ), I imagine you either used tweezers or some other tool to get it out, OR, you may have turned it upside down and jolted it downward with a sudden stop to get the disc moving out of it.

Or you threw it against the wall. lol

why would you need to install Windows before running MemTest, as it boots it's own OS anyway?

I'm just wondering why he would need to test the memory before installing an OS is all. Most people would install OS first. Just wondering what happened that he felt he needed to check the mem before installing OS is all.

Actually was just curious to test out the latency on the ram and wanted the purist way to test that's all. In the hindsight it was obviously a stupid move as I said in the original post.

Ok ok what I eventually did was that I took out the drive and plugged into another working computer and used the windows to eject it. I will however look at the ubuntu option for future.

Again tx for all the suggestions!
