Question about HP RT810UTABA - HP dc7700 small form factor, Core Duo E6300, 80GB hard drive 7200 SATA, no floppy, DVD/... PC Desktop
I just got a new work station and when I plug it in it runs diagnostics and booting but the disc drive will not open so that I can insert any disc into it. Please help before I tear it apart.
To force it open you can use a paper clip. Bend it open so you can stick the end of it into a little hole that is right near the disc drive. This will release the spring to allow it to open. The reason it is not opening on it's own, could be that it is no longer getting any power (disconnected cable inside the box) or that the drive itself has failed.
So, first open it up manually with a paper clip and then if nothing happens when you push it back in then either a cable issue or bad drive...

Are the Keyboard and Mouse USB or Wireless USB. Meaning those Wireless keyboards and mice that you can get and from Microsoft or Logitech. Make sure you have batteries replaced or recharged for your keyboard and mouse. Then see if this solved the problem.

Look into the Bios or System Setup and make sure Plug and Play is enabled. When you turn the system on notice what key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit that key and check the Plug and Play to be sure it is enabled.
