    Dell Dimension 2400 desktop CD/DVD drawer does not open. Green light goes one when I push the button and when I go into "my computer" and select the drive and eject, but does not open. Appears to be stuck? Used to work. The green light comes on and I can hear it running.

Use a straightened paper clip and push it firmly but lightly into the tiny hole on the front of the drive. the door will release. once opened, remove any media and try to open and close it using the open/close button on the front of the drive. if it does not work, the gear or the mechanism has been damaged. you can purchase a new one for around $40 and replace it easily.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.

Can I change my operating system from vista to xp? If I do that what will be its advantage and disadvantage?


Yes you can as long as you have the installation disc with a valid product key. The disadvantage is an older operating system. The advantage is XP is more stable when installed and updated to Service Pack 3.

Download and install windows xp prof, hardware lenovo E5300 A4086


Hi,
There are many places online to download Windows XP

but none of them are legal. Windows XP is not

distributed online so there is no legitimate way

to download Windows XP, even from Microsoft.

No matter where you find it, any XP download you

come across online is illegal. The only legal

course of action when you need a copy of Windows

XP is to actually buy a new copy of Windows XP.

It's that simple.

It's important to note as well that even if you

did download Windows XP, what you would get is an

image of the Windows XP Setup CD. For example, you

would probably download an ISO file like

windows-xp-pro.iso, or something like that. You

would then burn that ISO image to a CD that you

would then use to install Windows XP.

In many ways, however, what you actually pay for

when you legally purchase a copy of Windows XP is

the product key (sometimes referred to as a CD key

or key code, or incorrectly as the serial number).

This unique number is required during an

installation of Windows XP. So even if you did

download Windows XP, you would still need a valid

XP product key to install and use Windows.
