CD/DVD burner tray won't open- unresponsive

I have home-brew PC running windows XP SP3, an Intel motherboard with a 2.5 GHz CPU, 1 Gbyte of RAM, several hard drives, and a Microadvantage model 16DDVDRW-A13 optical drive installed. The optical drive is unresponsive when I push the drive eject button or try the software eject on windows explorer. However, I know the drive works. I tried restarting the computer, but the drive still did not repond. Any suggestions?

    How does a person clean the gears? I know the optical drive would have to be taken apart. Is there a video online to show how to clean a cd / dvd optical drive or how to repair a stuck tray?

UpGrade


you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc
