I'm assuming you've tried multiple CD's, DVD's, audio discs, etc with the same results... at this point, you're probably looking at a bad drive (something wrong with the electronics that's telling the computer to "eject" instead of "load") ....however, here's a trick I did once to fix this problem:

Close the CD tray, and just as it's closing, hold on to it and keep it from closing ...again, the drive's probably bad, so you're not going to hurt it...the drive will fight you for a moment, then open back up. Now try closing it again (with the button) and see if it stays this time.

If so, woo-hoo! If not, time to head to the store :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

I tried to set the timing belt for the v6 bighorn but it seems like its not right.i took the right handside cilinder head off and replaced the burned valve and i tried to put it back and i forgot to mark...


This is not something that can be fixed in a few lines,so the best thing to do is go to "alldatadiy.com". About $30US will get you a very specific diagram and steps to help you put your engine back together the right way. You could also try to get the Haynes manual for it at the auto parts store or a chain store like Wal-Mart that has an automotive section. Hope this helps.

My hp Pavilion a450n wont boot it shows the screen where it says Window XP and it shut down and for maybe 1 second shows a blue screen with some info and it goes back to asking to start window normally...


It sounds like your windows OS installation has been corrupted. Your computer might have a recovery partition like many HP models do.
Try hitting F11 when you first turn on the computer (watch the screen in the corners. It may say something like hit "F2 to go to BIOS or F12 to choose a boot device/ etc. Each computer is different in this regard).
If you can get into the recovery partition you may be able to do a windows repair. Alternatively, if you have your windows disc you can boot off the cd and run the windows repair tool like that.
I would HIGHLY recommend manually backing up any and all important files first. If you have a USB enclosure use that to pull the drive out and hook it up to another computer. If you dont then I would run a bootalbe version of linux or something and transfer your files to a USB drive or burn to a cd. See here to download ubuntu.

Im havin a problem wit my acer comin on it askin


similar story trying to fix friend's 5420. She had trashed Vista and lost any&all original discs. Well, who needs vista anyway...it's not one of M$'s better efforts. TRY THIS, download LinuxMint from a reliable source, burn a "live CD". put into drive, boot machine, during boot press "Alt"+"F12", select CD to boot from. See how it feels. Wait couple minutes for boot to finish then manually click on tiny icon next to network icon to load wireless driver, (don't ask...), on bottom right of screen. Learn some new stuff, toss some windows. enjoy.

Im having trouble burning a cd. it goes through the whole cd and it ejects the cd and says that the disk didnt burn


For $40, buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" device -- much cheaper than paying a qualified technician to try to trouble-shoot, and then make the same "replace it" recommendation.

Im a learner so please could you help me i try to record on a cd it goes through all the correct proceads then when i ask for it to burn it starts shows that its working after a moment or so it says its...


Check whether you are putting the proper CD, I mean to say that its a blank CD. It could also be possible that your CD is bad.

Secondly you can also clean your CD writer using the cleaner.

There are certain CDs which are not compatible with the burner. Try using a different CD of a different make.

Lost cd and when i put USB in computer it doesn't work?


The New Hardware Wizard comes up whenever a new device is connected to the computer. At this point, you would usually put the CD into the drive and proceed from there.

Since you have lost the CD, go to http://www.praktica-uk.com/dload.php and select "Driver download for Practica SlimPix 5200" from the drop down list. Click on the Icon and download the file SlimPix 5200.zip. Unzip the file into a new folder and connect the camera. This time, when the New Hardware Wizard comes up, direct the wizard to the new directory rather than let it search for the drivers.
