Problems re installing Windows 7

HI, I need to re install Windows 7 on my other comp, Samsung R519 laptop. After 3 hours is still on 0% Expanding Windows files. Thought would copy on a flash pen, in case disc scratched or something, but as installation had started am unable to get the disc out.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Pressing the button to open it not work.Can you switch the laptop off and hope the try will open when you start up.Just press the button to open the dvd drive as it restarts.

Try going to the bios on startup and change the boot order to HDD first, then reboot. You might have an option to temporarily change the boot order if you have a manual to check out.

Many drive have a "pinhole" to manually release the tray by inserting a pin etc
