Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
When you explore the cd rom it gives me please insert any cd in the drive which mean the cd rom does not read any cd ( my cd drive is TEAC CD-W24E)
Most likely this is a failed CD drive or failed CD reader board in the drive. You can try cleaning the lens, and uninstalling the drivers for the drive from the device manager, but most liky you will have to replace the drive. When you unistall the drivers, restart the machine. it will find the CD drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. If a lens cleaning kit, or reinstalling the drivers do not work, then I'm afraid the drive will need replaced.

There are two ways you can do this.
1). Go into file manger or File explore.
2). Click on my PC or This PC.
3). locate the CD rom Icon for the drive you wish to get into.
4). right click on The CD rom drive Icon.
5). Click "EJECT".
1). Get a paper clip. bend it in to a letter L shape.
2). on the CD drive face plate there should be a small hole. NOTE: Not the LED / LIGHT.
3). Insert the paper clip into the hole. While keeping the clip straight give it a small push and the tray should open.
