There is a small hole on the CD-Rom you can straighten out a safety pin and push it in there. It will eject the CD. Hopefully it will then fix your problem.

How do you remove a hard-drive on a Compaq Presario SR2050NX


Hi,
Attached is the link to the service manual for your desktop. It gives complete instructions on how to open the tower and remove the drive.

Service Manual

Go to page 4 of the manual in case you have opened the chassis and removed the front cover.
Note: You would need a philips head screw driver for the job. Do name the screws from place you took them out. otherwise it would be confusing.

Thanks for using Fixya

Compaq presario sr1920nx--dvd rw lightscribe cannnot read or play dvd, compact disc; cleaned the tray, tried other players: real player, windows media player, sonic player, quicktime player


Assuming it powers on - since it sounds like you can open and close.. check 2 things - 1. run set up - press F1 while booting up for most pc... make sure your dvd drive is detected. if yes, 2 open case and make sure the data cable is connected on drive and the board.

How to burn mp3-cd disc to cd-rom


the best way to burn an Mp3 disk is to pick which Mp3 files you want to burn and put them into a folder (the 2 best ways to know if the files are Mp3 are either to mouse over the files or to right click on the file and click properties) then insert your chosen CD or DVD into your drive. when autoplay comes up tell it to take no action or cancel. then click on my computer. then open your Mp3 folder and press Ctrl + A. right click on any file and then click copy. go back into my computer and right click on your CD Drive (usually (D:) ) and click paste. then Click on the CD Drive and find the button that says burn wait for it to burn and you should be done.

Have you tried another video card? Or even another monitor? If not, could be the motherboard especially if the video card is integrated into the motherboard.

Presario SR1123WM won't restore to factory


If Compaq doesn't have one no one else will either.
  Have you tried the recover clean up utility? Available as a download (link below)  
My guess is that if it will not restore something is wrong with the hard drive. Have you contacted HP to ask them what it means? 
Another option is to buy and install windows and download the drivers from Compaq/HP.Same link

MY COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000 WILL NOT OPEN WINDOWS XP.


Does your desktop comeup and give any time before it shutdowns, say 1 minute or something like that,
You can log into safe mode and do system restore by pressing F8 once you power on the computer, but you need to keep on pressing till you see the safe mode option.

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
