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.

I suggest try inserting the CD on a different computer to verify that the problem is not with the CD. If it still doesn't run from different computer, the disc might be causing the problem.

My hp cd slotd donot download when I try to download a game

Hi Papawgram,

Please provide more informaation:

What Windows version are you using?
When you insert the CD and close the CD drive, does it make any noises and please describe?
Do you have this problem with all Games or CDs when inserting them into the CD Drive r is it just this one?
When you follow the steps below what happens?

If it is making the spinning noise when you insert the CD and close the CD drive , please try by opening your My Computer/Computer when you go to -> Start Menu. Have a look at the CD drive(usually the D: or E: drive) and it should show the icon of the Game on the CD. You can start(download) the game by double click on the icon.

There is a chance it may be the drive itself. More than likely when burning a cd there's a chance that only other cd burners can read it. Try it in a drive with burning capabilities.

Playing music

When the lid is closed on your player there is a little switch that is activated (closed) letting the player know you have inserted a disk and you're ready to jam out. Sometimes they are fairly easy to find and sometimes they are located in places that aren't so easy, like in the hinge. For the most part, there will be a hook- like piece extending from the lid of the unit which, when closed will activate the switch on the other half of your player. If you can find this hole where the hook goes into, check to see if it is making contact by taking a tooth pick or something similar ( nothing metal !! ) and activating the switch manually with a cd inserted.
