Most likely a hardware problem with the media control strip. You can try re-seating the cable connection for the strip, if no change then replace the strip.

Go to control panel, Mouse, Synaptics or Touchpad tab. There should be an option either labeled Palmcheck or An option to disable touchpad while typing. That should resolve the issue

hello, is the drive now stuck won't eject with the button? if so try using paper clip in the tiny hole close to the eject button. take a paper clip and straighten it and then gently insert in tiny hole keeping straight and leveled, after is inserted in to drive about 3/4 of an inch you will feel little resistance and then gently press it to eject the drive manually.

I hope that what your question was, if not post back.

good luck

This error code refers to "The TV-Out port of your display card is not working properly". Often you need to go to the website of your VGA card manufacturer and download the latest driver for your card.

There have been other people who fixed the problem by rolling back to the previous version of PowerDVD too.

That's a known issue with the Studio laptop. I have the same laptop (almost the same- 15.4) and I experience the same difficulties a lot. Dell has some issues with their DVD drives.

The most affective solution I've found was to restart the computer, and click Fn+eject (it's the F10 button if I'm not mistaken)

That's the least intrusive solution I know

This is usually a sign that the cd drive has failed..

The only other things it could be are, something has lodged itself inside the cd tray.

Or the lens has become extremely dirty.

You could try running a lens cleaning disk through the drive, after blowing it out with a can of compressed air, and it may help..

but more then likely its just a bad disk.

The studio is a nice looking computer. having said that, I hate the audio/media buttons. Its likely you have to call dell for service to get that panel replaced.

when you boot the computer press F2 to get into bios. Once you are in BIOS it will display the Express service code and the Service Tag of your computer.

Hope this solution is helpful to you.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

try to eject it through emergency eject hole. if it works try to open with in windows and if it works you need to delete upper filter and lower filter from registry but before doing that take the backup of registry or it may crash your sys.
