  1. Well I had my laptop in a case and i dropped it. When i examined my laptop I noticed the cd drive slot was sticking out and was stuck. I pushed it back in and it would not eject until i pushed the little pinhole. The little light on the cd drive was blinking once i fixed it so i thought it was alright. But, now I do not see the drive in my computer. I put in a Dvd and a cd and I can hear the drive reading it but i see no cd drive on my computer.:dead:

    PLease help

    Probably damaged a connection shouldn't be too hard to fix just be care full when you take it apart
