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... *******.

Freeze up

I don't have much experience with the Galaxy Tab, but try holding down the power button until it powers off. If that doesn't work leave it alone until the battery dies. That should effectively restart it.

What do the PUSHAD instructions accomplish?

According to several sources including online college level assembly language courses (check assembly language books or google it too)
It pushes all of the 32-bit general-purpose registers on the stack. According to Alpheus's post at:

it states:

The PUSHAD instruction always pushes all 8 general purpose registers onto the stack. A single PUSHAD instruction is equivilent to writing: Push EAX Push ECX Push EDX Push EBX Push ESP Push EBP Push ESI Push EDI POPAD pops the values back off the stack in reverse order, thus restoring all the register values.
PUSHAD and POPAD are useful for performing a easy save and restore of the general purpose registers without having to PUSH and POP every individual register in turn.
Similarly, PUSHFD and POPFD are used to save and restore the EFLAGS register. Although not really used that much in ordinary programs, the instructions are useful when (for example) a process context switch is performed (or anywhere else where the value of the flags register must be restored).
how does the pushfd operation push a value such as 00000A46 to the stack?
It's just how the data is interpreted. The EFLAGS register is a set of 32 bits. If you divide the bits up into 8 groups of 4 (8*4=32), you can map each 4 bit chunk to a hexadecimal character (0..9,A-F). Likewise, you can convert the hexadecimal values back to a set of bits:
00000A46 = 0000(0) 0000(0) 0000(0) 0000(0) 0000(0) 1010(A) 0100(4) 0110(6)
These are the values of the bits that were stored in the EFLAGS register.

Hello, I would like to overclock my AMD mt30 CPU 1600Mhz25wattTDP 64clockspeed/power ratio to that of a SempronML37 2000Mhz35WattTDP and 57.1 clock speed/power ratio? Do I just change the voltages in...

Due to the way you stated the above John, you seem like a guy that will understand the following;

Yeah know funny thing about overclocking;

1) You may have a good Processor that came off the assembly line that day, or it may be one that just squeezed past Quality Control. Push it too much, and it will fry. Trying to make it hit 2.0GHz all day long, every day, may just push it over the limit. Sure you may have read about, or even heard of someone who did it. How long? How long did the processor last at this overclocked rate?

2) AMD's run H-O-T. Not a good idea to push a Processor with overclocking (Which makes it run MUCH hotter) in a cramped laptop environment, with a low cooling capacity anyway.

3) Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB Frequency Rate ('Speed'), that the Processor does. (Front Side Bus)

To overclock you can;
A) Change the Voltage
B) Change the FSB frequency rate ('speed')
C) Change the Multiplier

If you change the Front Side Bus frequency rate too far, the ram memory will not work anymore.
Won't match.

AMD Turion 64 MT-30,

The Sempron you name is a Turion also.
Turion ML-37,

4) You have to have a BIOS Setup Utility that will allow you to change CPU parameters.

See this article?

No mention that overclocking a Processor shortens it's 'Life Span'
No mention that if overclocked too far the Ram Memory may not work.

No mention that an AMD processor runs HOT, and if you overclock you'd better have a lot more than the factory cooling. Plus not a good thing for a laptop anyway because of a laptop's poor cooling design. (Cramped small space, small fan, inadequate cooling thermal module)

No mention that the BIOS Setup Utility in your laptop may not have a CPU Soft option, or options inside that allow you to change the Processor's parameters.

No mention that you should go slow. Change parameters in one SMALL increment, wait 24 hours, and check the system. Looks okay? Change parameters another small increment. Check during a 24 hour period. Keep going until the computer starts messing up, then go BACK to the last parameter that checked out okay

Have I dissuaded you yet?
Just don't want to see someone fry their Processor, or computer.


The Turion MT-30 has a clock multiplier of 8 times. (8x)
The Turion ML-37 has a clock multiplier of 10x.

The Turion MT-30 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)
The Turion ML-37 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)

The Turion MT-30's Front Side Bus frequency rate is 800MegaHertz
The Turion ML-37's FSB 'speed' is 800MHz.

What options in your BIOS Setup do you have for changing CPU (Processor) parameters?
State back in a Comment. (Believe top right of your page)

No options?
Then try CrystalCPUID, or ClockGen,

This is a question regarding the Intel processor's internal thermal solution. I have a Core i7 870 processor. As a sidenote I've used it a few times to start the computer and it's functioning, but I can't...

If you have already wiped some thermal compound paste fro the processor then I reccommend you to wipe it completly from the heatsink of the cpu and the heatsink itself. The reason to this is that if you plan on purchasing another type of compound thermal paste in which have more conductivilty then you want to get the most out of it. Do not attempt to run your cpu without any thermal compound as you will damage the cpu from overheating.

Swaping from 'c drive' to 'd drive'?


Print this off first, as you'll have to reboot a couple of times.

Most of your space is taken up by three things.
1.) Your Swap File
2.) The System Restore Files
3.) My Documents Folder

First, Right Click My Computer, select Propertis, choose the System Restore Tab, move the slider to the left so that the current number is reduced by half. You'll be prompted to reboot as you exit out of My Computer

Go ahead and reboot.

Next is your swap file.
Right Click My Computer, select Properties, choose the Advanced Tab, click on the Performance Button, in the Virtual Memory section click on the Change Button. You want to create a Swap File on D, this should be twice the size of your Ram Modules installed. You'll need to make this size on D the same for minimum and maximum (that makes it a permanent swap file). You ALSO need to reduce the size of the swap file on C but it has to be at least 16MB for minimum and maximum.

Now, create a folder on D: called My Documents
Copy all contents of your current My Documents on C: over to the new one on D:
Once you have done this reboot and make certain your files are on D: alright
Now, right click My Documents and type in the text box D:\My Documents

And, reboot

Right click the My Documents folder on your desktop and verify it is now pointing to the D drive.

If it is pointing to the new folder you may delete the My Documents files on c:
You'll find it at C:\Documents and Settings\[your login name]\My Documents. Delete the contents but not the folder.

Now its time to defrag C: as you have all this extra free space.

Best Regards,

ps If you have any questions, just comment back and I'll answer your questions

Laptop will not power up!

If you have replaced the motherboard I would say it is most likely the CPU. If you had not replaced the m/board I would think it was one of the power chips on the board that sends power to the cpu. If the heat sink compound had turned to dust on the top of the cpu that is certainly not going to help with cooling the cpu down. $500 sounds awful pricey for a CPU. What type and speed is it? May be able to dig one up for you in the basement that will work. At least for testing purposes. Post your type and speed of cpu that will work in your laptop.
