Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya, Paul Stanford.
Here is what needs to be done if the DVD drive is a normal 5.25" (inch) desktop drive.
On the front of the drive, below the tray front cover is a little hole.
This hole is the key to opening your DVD drive.
Bend a paper clip, so that you get a long length, about 2" (inches) long. Now push the paper clip into the hole and your DVD drive tray will open.
Caution: Do this when your computer is off and be sure NOT to use the LED hole!

no ghosts, you either have something jammed up inside of the drive which is keeping the door from closing properly all the way or the door itself is defective.
Either way you would be better off replacing the drive with a new dvd-rw cause the drive would be up to date and the problem with the opening door would go away.
