Cannot open CD drive on startup to reinstall XP?


LOOK FOR A PIN HOLE LOCATED ON THE CD-ROM THIS WILL MAKE THE CD-ROM TO OPEN.
OR
SOME KEYBOARD HAVE THE OPTION ON THE KEYBOARD TRY PUSHING IT A FEW TIMES AND WAIT FOR 1 MINUTE AND THEN PUSH THE REFRESH BUTTON ON THE KEYBOARD OR IN THE PULL DOWN MENU ON THE DEST TOP IN VIEW AND HALF WAY DOWN.

LAST OPTION REMOVE THE POWER FROM THE DRIVE WAIT 2 MINUTER THAN PLUG PWR IN TRY OPEN BUTTON AGAIN.

LAST YOU CAN FORCE THE CD-ROM OPEN WITHOUT BRAKING IT CAREFULLY.
*********************************
********************************
ONE OF MAY BOOK SAY TO CALL THE VENDER OF THAT DRIVE AND SEE IF THEY HAVE ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO OPEN THE DRIVE WITHOUT BRAKING IT.

LAST BUT LEAST IS THE DRIVERS MAYBE CORUPTED AND YOU NEED TO DELETE AND REINSTALL AS NEW HARDWARE AND USE THE CONTROLL PANAL OPTION TO IN STALL NEW HARDWARE OR HARDWARE WIZARD.

If this happens with all your CDs and everytime, I would suggest you should replace your CD Rom Drive with a new one. After use of some years CD Rom Drives have such problems. Otherwise a software might locking your drive. you should find a tool which unlocks the drive and then press the eject button.
