  1. Hello,
    I need some help in opening an IBM T60 Laptop. I accidentally dropped it and the CD drive seems to be jammed. I want to open it and fix the CD Drive. If you could help me in opening up the laptop that would be very helpful.

    Thank you.

    I wonder if it would be more helpful to have the link for IBM laptops?

    The drive should have a tiny physical eject hole init. Have you tried pushing a straightened paperclip or sth similar in there to force the tray open?
