Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
My compo drive does not open. With pin I open it. When a CD is in, if asked to open, only the drive letter comes to the screen, as if the CD is empty. I tried cleaning the lens with a soft cloth, still the problem remains. Early the connecting ribbon used to come out and the tray used to get stuck. After pushing back and forth 3 or 4 times only it would close.
There is a spring that pops the tray open when the PC releases the latch. you can operate and find the spring or lube the slides with a powderless grease, not graphite as it will migrate to the lens. as fot the hissing, you can look at the direct drive spindle motor and see if it is still physically attaches as sometimes these let go of the spindle. CD roms are not that expensive on Ebay, may be time to upgrade to a DVD while you are at it. CD roms are able to be realigned by a service shop, but may be economically challenging.
