I would definitely contact Dell. It should come to you in perfect working order. I'm not 100% sure but I think that the chipset driver runs the DVD drive. You could try reinstalling that from the Dell website. It could be something simple like software but it could be a bad DVD drive.

Go to Dell.com.au then select For Home then down the bottom go to Drivers and Downloads. Enter your Service Tag number (it will be on the machine somewhere). It will come up with a number of driver downloads for you unit. Select the chipset driver and follow the prompts.

If in doubt, contact Dell. It's worth a try though. Should only take a few minutes.

If you want to contact Dell you can email this Anzxps_AP@dell.com and ask for Darren (not his real name). He usually helps me out very well.

if you still have not got the disk out of the drive you can eject it from windows itself, drop to the desktop click the file icon in the task bar click on This PC and then right click the DVD drive and click eject. Assuming you have windows 8 if not and its windows 7 click the start button then click my computer then right click on the drive and eject.
