  • Most cd drives have a small pin hole located just below the mouth of the cd tray. If your cd rom is black this makes it much harder to notice and easy to miss. I have a picture or cd rom drive on the left. This will give you an idea of where that pin hole is located.

  • Use a small paperclip and insert it into that hole. You use the paperclip to find the lever that pushes the drive open. Usually you'll have to fiddle with finding the exact spot but it's not rocket science. Most cd drives should open if you find the right spot and push in with the paperclip.

  • If for what ever reason the drive does not open. Chances are mechanically the device has a moving part that has seized up and will no longer function normally. In this case It is better to take apart the cd rom with tools as it gives you insight on what part malfunctioned. Sometimes its as easy as a ruber band going out of place. Worse case scenario if it is completely broken cd drives are so cheap you can replace one with ease.

Unable to copy dvd's

Most dell machines do no come with dvd rewriting as standard. They only come with cd rewriting capability. Unless you specifically requested it as an add on to the spec it probably just has the ability to pay dvd's.

Most internet cafe's will have a machine with a dvd rewriter if you really need to copy a dvd

Tower compaq presario 6000 will not power up

after reading your query i can understand that there may be no issue with the power supply,
can u hear any kind of long beep? if yes try cleaning the ram, if this also doesnt help then try changing the ram.
if this is not helpful please check the cmos battery,
if battery is ok, then there may be a problem with your motherboard of Processor.
