  • 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.

I have a e-machines tower model EL1331G-01w. My problem is when I try to boot the tower it won't start up, it gets to the E machine logo and then says "verifying DMI pool data.........update...


Hi,
This is addressed on IDE ATA drives... (1) - Have you tried a different IDE cable? If not give it a go and do a repair if needed again!.....

(2) - You may have a corrupt MBR (master boot record)!! You will need to reformat and do Fdisk /mbr to delete the master boot record!! Save all data first as this will not allow you to access any of your data as all file location addresses are located in the MBR!!

.....(3) - Your harddrive may have a bad sector get a zerofill tool(low level formatting tool)!! This will rewrite you HD's sectors putting them back to factory spec's!! Maxtors is called Maxblast you can get it from thier site!!

....(4) - or it could be a defective drive, but most read errors are due ot corrupt MBR or a bad sector!!

Hope this has helped you... Please rate the answer... thanks...

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

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.
