Compaq pressario 4764 will not release cd but will play it. how do i get it out without harming it?

With the power off insert a paper clip wire to release. Suggest trying ejecting many many times before using the paper clip trick.. Use the clip with the power off or it will close on you before you get it out. Insert into hole and keeping horizontal apply some moderate force.

What has happen as the machine has gotten older the rubber belt that operated the eject has stretched. By cycling it usually will warm up a little and get sticky enough against the pulley to release the disk. The drive needs to be repaired. There are several videos available to show you how. I found getting the replacement belt to be the difficulty. Replacement drivwes are not very expensive.

Why won't the D drive open

Use a paper clip and use the pin hole to manually open it. Close it again and try again with the eject button. If it does not open, time to replace it. I am assuming you see a light blinking when you tried - if you don't see a light - open the PC and check the power cable connection to it.

My hp g5000 will not switch on

What do you mean won't switch on? Does it try to switch on?

What happens when you hit the power button?

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the battery, Open the memory cover on bottom of laptop and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Dvd player on my hp computer will not open to insert dvd or cd's

If it doesn't eject right when you press the eject button right after you power it on, then its not being locked by software and there is either a defect with the button mechanism, the ejecting motor, or the power system.
If you don't need to use it often, you can try manually ejecting it with a paperclip. If it reads the cd / dvd discs, then it is just an issue with the button or motor. If it won't read discs then you'll probably need to replace the unit. If your HP is a desktop, you can use any type of drive (BluRay, CD DVD DL, R, RW etc), as long as you verify it has the same data / power connectors (PATA / SATA). If your not sure the difference, here is an image of two hard drives that have the different connections:
If you have a laptop, you can try contacting Hewlett-Packard with your model, product number, and serial number (on bottom of the laptop) and they may be able to send you an appropriate replacement.
Another alternative would be a using a portable USB disc drive.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Hp g5000 sreen does not light up as usal, i can see a the start up when i shine a torch at the sreen, what do i need to do to get working.

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional source of light.
A Backlight is used as the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to the Fluorescent lighting used in homes and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

The LCD screen is a composite of layers, surrounded by a thin metal frame that resembles a picture frame.
To one side of the LCD screen layers, and under the frame is usually where the Backlight is mounted.
[Note* Two Backlights are used in some models]

Replacing a Backlight is more labor intensive than replacing an Inverter.
Due to this, and the cost, the LCD screen itself is replaced as a unit most of the time, when it comes to Backlight replacement.

Example of a replacement LCD screen for the HP G5000 series of Notebook PC's,

[Note* Stating HP G5000 is just stating the model series. When buying replacement parts the EXACT Model Number should be used. This information is located on the bottom of the laptop, in a white Service Tag.

When replacing an LCD screen, the model number of the replacement LCD screen should be matched to the existing LCD screen's Model Number.
Inverters and LCD screens are matched together. Make sure you get the correct part]

An Inverter is used to provide power from the laptop to the LCD screen, and to the Backlight.

Note* 90 Percent of the time the problem is a bad Inverter.

Example of an Inverter for an HP G5000 series notebook PC,

The LCD screen, Top Cover, Display Bezel, Inverter, Backlight, and various screws, make up the Display Assembly.
The Display Bezel made of plastic surrounding the LCD screen, and in front of the LCD screen is removable.
Behind it is easy access to the Inverter.

The Inverter is approximately 4 inches long, and the width of a No.1 pencil.
Usually located at the bottom of the LCD screen, and right behind the Bezel.

This article shows replacing an Inverter and LCD screen on a Compaq Presario v2000 series Notebook PC,

This pictorial guide is not for the HP G5000 series Notebook PC, but the models are very similar when it comes to Inverter replacement.
The above link is to show you what is involved.

Please post questions in a Comment.

Nx9010 powers on but no video. fan spins.

Hello sir, hi, it seems you have a problem with memory modules, you need to open up your PC/laptop, and locate the memory. remove the modules, and clean its terminals (you clean then using a pencil eraser, just simply erase the terminals, until the contacts become shiny), with a soft clean paint brush, clean the memory slots too, then replace the modules, close then test the unit. do this several times until the unit boots up. keep me posted.
