Button on left side won't go back in

I don't have experience with computers so don't know the name of the bit. It's on the left side - a tab you push and a 'tray' slides out (it's removable) but when I push the tray back in the button won't go back in. Please help

    Sorry - it's not the cd drive - it's on the opposite side of the laptop and much smaller.

  • kevmar429 Oct 12, 2008

    I'm sorry - I meant that the solution was inappropriate to my needs! I may not be equal to your intellectual standard but I would never resort to personal attacks on complete strangers. I was wrong not to give more information but I had searched for ages just to find a site that even acknowledged it could help. So, can you please help?

    I have a Dell Latitude D630 laptop that was given to me for work - it came with nothing but my passwords and I'm to use it in the field.

    I accidently pushed the button on the left side and out popped this little tray. When I pushed it back in the button stayed out and won't go back in.

Dell laptops have a blank PCMCIA card to go into the slot when not in use to prevent dust and other harmful particles from entering the case. Try pushing the button back in before you insert the card.

Hi kevmar429,

It sounds like your referring to a cd rom drive(the unit you put your cd's in). It also sounds like it may have been pressed on way to hard. Anyway, try this, take a compressed air can(sold at most office supply stores and big box discount stores for around $5.00 a can) with the extension tube on, blow on and around the tab. Also, listen for any irregular sounds like something binding up. Under no circumstances use a loosening agent such as WD-40 or the likes there of. If the tab is truly broken your only recourse may be to purchase a new one. They are fairly cheap nowadays and real easy to install. If you do end up buying a new cd player and don't know what to do, come back to and post a new question i.e. "how do I install new cd player in my computer." I'm confident that someone will, if not me, be glad to assist you. I hope this helped a little.

Thank you for using

Sincerely, cyyyd7

    Hi kevmar429,

    My bad, I thought you were referring to a desk top pc. Your question was posted under "processor?"

    And you gave very, very vague information to work with. How can you possibly rate as inappropriate when you yourself didn't even tell us what model of computer you have, you simply stated "I don't have experience with computers. How much experience do you need to read the model what model computer you have. I don't mind criticism when it is warranted, but, to think a computer illiterate such as yourself thinks solid, indepth, informative, way over your head information is inappropriate absolutely makes me never want to help dumbasses, such as yourself, ever again. And I don't give a flying **** if they kick my off this site, its just one many I belong too. So, crawl back into your hole and figure this **** out yourself. I hope this helped, it sure helped me.

    Thank you for using

    Sincerely, Your intellectual superior

    cyyyd7... *******.

Unable to access sound. I do not know what to do. It is a rental so I do not intend to buy but I would suggest to them. Thanks

Tell them to download, AND install, the proper Audio Driver, from the HP Support website.

Look at the back of the computer tower, or up on the side/top, for the white Service Tag.
Look for the Product Number. (To the right of P/N)

Go to HP Support, enter the Product Number. Then go to Drivers and Downloads on that computer's main page.

Look at the Audio driver/s.

1) IF more than one audio driver is listed on the driver download page, they need to go to Device Manager, and see what audio device manufacturer is listed.

Then match the audio device name to the audio driver name.

(Examples; RealTek, Creative, Intel, Conexant, and so on)

[ Device Manager:

Left-click on Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list > Left-click on the Hardware tab >
Left-click on Device Manager.

Win Vista and Win7:
Left-click on the Windows start button > Right-click on Computer > Left-click on Properties > Left-click on the Hardware tab > Left-click on Device Manager.

Click on the + sign to the left of Sound, video and game controllers.
In the list; do you see Realtek, or Creative, or Conexant, or Intel, listed?
Match the name up to the audio driver listed in HP Support ]

2) They also need to match the Operating System.

If the computer has Windows XP on it, (Any version, Home or Pro),
they need to download, AND install the audio driver for WinXP.

Same for Vista, and Win7.

One more variable to look at with the Operating System.
See what bit version it is.
Is it 32-bit, or 64-bit?

Need THE appropriate audio driver.

However, look close. Some drivers will work with both a 32-bit O/S, and a 64-bit O/S.
(O/S = Operating System )

A lot of times the file name does not list what Operating System, and bit version, it is for.

If you click on Download, a small window will come up on the right.
In the heading is a basic description of the file.

XPx86 means it's for a Windows XP operating system, that is 32-bit.
XPx64 means it is for a Windows XP operating system, that is 64-bit.

Vista x86? Vista 32-bit
Vista x64? Vista 64-bit

Same with Win7.

An example;

1) I have looked in Device Manager, and see the name Conexant listed in the list under Sound, video, and game controllers.

I know now that I am looking first of all, for an audio driver that has the name Conexant, in it.

2) I know that the computer has the Windows Vista operating system.

If I Left-click on the Windows start button, Right-click on Computer, then Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list, the System Properties window will state what bit the O/S is.

If it is a 64-bit O/S this will be stated.

If it is a 32-bit O/S this may not be stated. It is assumed unless 64-bit is stated, the O/S is a 32-bit operating system.

64-bit is not stated. (x86 is 32-bit)
I now know the operating system is 32-bit.

I look through the audio files listed for a Conexant audio driver, that is for Windows Vista, and 32-bit. (x86)

Also; if there are audio drivers that match, but one has a newer date, use the one with the newer date.

If it is a rental computer, the rental company is the Administrator, and is the only one who can download, AND install, the audio driver.

IF, downloading AND installing the audio driver does NOT repair the audio problem, then the Integrated Audio is bad.

Another term used for Integrated Audio is OnBoard Audio.
ON the motherBOARD.
The audio chipset is soldered TO the motherboard.

This means the audio chipset soldered to the motherboard is bad.
Install a sound card. (PCI version)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
To have me clarify/explain anything I have stated above, please post in a Comment.

[ Also include the computer manufacturer name, { Compaq? I do not want to assume }, and the Model Number. (Product Number for Compaq and HP )

It's in the white Service Tag on the back, or upper side, of a desktop computer tower.
Bottom of a laptop.
P/N = Product Number ]

Need ethernet drivers for emachine e525

Scroll down. There are two LAN drivers listed.
One is RealTek, one is Ralink.

The Ralink LAN driver is for Vista 32-bit, and 64-bit
The RealTek LAN driver is for WinXP 32-bit or 64-bit.

So without having to go to Device Manager, you know right off the bat which LAN driver you need, based on what Operating System you are using.

Vista or XP.

[ But the proper method is to check;

Left-click on Start
Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of -
Network Adapters.
Your Ethernet adapter manufacturer will be shown.

Vista and Win7:
Left-click on the Windows logo button.
Right-click on Computer
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of -
Network Adapters.
Your Ethernet adapter manufacturer will be shown ]

When you click on the appropriate driver file, a small window will come up on the right.
Go to the bottom of this small window, and left-click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left. In the wording at the top of this window, tells you where the file will download to.
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

{Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, for Vista and Win7}

1) Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

2) My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents.

{Windows logo button, then Documents, for Vista and Win7}

3) Downloads: Left-click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

{Windows logo button, then Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads, for Vista, and Win7}

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it. The Installation Wizard will come up.
Follow the easy instructions.

{Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish at the bottom.
Windows knows the proper place for the driver file. Do Not change any settings}

After the installation is finished, restart your computer if not asked to do so.

{TIP: Sometimes it takes a cold boot, instead of a warm boot. (Restart)
The computer has to be turned all the way off. WAIT 1 minute, then turn back on}

Can you please tell me where the reset button is ? I hate to pay someone $100 to do this. Thanks, Jo Ann Deloy

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

While I don't have a video or diagram I can tell you on the LG dryers there is indeed a "reset" for the heating/burner funnel (as you obviously know) on the right hand side of the funnel, however they also incorporate a no reset "hi-limit thermostat" on the left side of the funnel. Once it is tripped it must be replaced. This is only present on the gas dryers.

It is located on the left side as I mentioned, but the other is on the right side of the heater housing/burner funnel and will resemble the images shown below.

It is part number 6931EL3004B ( the reset type is part # 6931EL3003C ) and available at "searspartsdirect" (which also has a illustration which may help you) or "" to name a couple.



With the aid of an ohm meter you can check the non-reset for continuity, the other you should be able to push the center reset button ( listen closely for a "click" ) but it too can be ohmed out for continuity to confirm or dismiss it's condition.

Hope that help`s move you forward. If so please take a second and rate the guidance and a testimony to the assistance you received here at FixYa, either or all is appreciated.

Let me know if you need any further info and I'll continue to help in any manner I can. Good luck

I can't remove the old filter to replace it. You're supposed to push the button in and it would pop out, but it won't go in. 56166501 is model.

If its been some time since you last changed the filter then you may need to pull the filter holder while holding the eject button. Don't twist the cap on the holder, just pull.

If you can't get a grip on it and the eject button still doesn't work then remove the base grille by openeing both doors and pushing the top and pulling the bottom to give you better access to the eject button and filter holder.

How do you disable the PTT button on the Samsung

From what I have read, there is no setting to disable the PTT
If you don't plan on using your PTT in the future.
Look for the PTT button on the left side of the phone.
Take a pin slide it under the button and pop it off.
On the back of the button, there is a little tab.
Take a nail clipper and shorten the tab just a bit.
Snap the button back on the phone.
With the tab shortend, the PTT will not activate when pushing or hitting the button.

I am attempting to put 2 gigabytes of memory into Hp Pavilion a12

What is the Brand name and the model #? on most computers, you should be able to pull the panel on the side of the tower off. it is usually on the left side. Sometimes there is a tab in the back to pull or two screws in the back you remove in order to remove this panel. Once the panel is off, You should see one or more slots where the memory chip will fit in. On each slot, there will be a tab on each end. push the tabs away from the slot so that the memory chip will fit in the slot. After inserting the memory chip, the tabs should automatically close to lock the chip in. If they dont, make sure the memory chips are pushed in all the way and push the tabs in manually. Then put the panel back on the side and start the computer. Never do this while the computer is running! Also, If you have to use a screwdriver, DO NOT USE ONE THAT IS MAGNETIC!! this can really screw your computer up.

Screen display

You have control buttons for the OSD either on the bottom or the side of your monitor.

Push and enter the set up and push buttons until you see the arrows that move the screen up or down, right or left.

Your model may have one of the buttons marked automatic. If so, pressing that one will center the display on your monitor.

Let us know if you still have a problem!
