1, to open your cd drive manually, get a tooth pick, look closely onto your cd drive i mean where the cd comes out from when ejected, you will see a very tiny hole put the tooth pick inside the hole push it in a bit hard then bring out if it does not try a tinier object it will come out.

2, if the system was on when u disconnected the belt it might have burnt the hdd or has caused error on the hdd, off the computer and reboot if no solution, reformatt the system if it does not work, get a new hdd. thanks

My pc wont boot. All i get is " reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"


This can happen if you have non-bootable media in the default boot device (i.e., you have a CD in the CD/DVD drive and that drive is listed as the default boot device in your system's BIOS). More often (on newer systems), a failed hard drive will also produce this message.

If you have bootable media (the Windows install CD is one example), you should try to boot to it and see if you can read your hard drive.

What if disk drive does not open during system says reboot and selesct proper booot device


Sounds like you may have a CD/DVD in the drive that is stuck and/or not inserted properly. There should be a small, pin-size opening on the front plate of the CD drive. Find a large paper clip, bend out one end of it then insert into the pin-hole. Push it until the drive pops open.

Reboot and select proper boot device


You cannot start a virtual machine in Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or in Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 from a third-party startup CD or from an ISO file that contains a third-party startup CD image.



When you start a virtual machine that does not have a guest operating system, you receive the following warning message:




Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device.




If you insert a startup CD for the operating system into the physical CD drive, or drag an ISO file that contains a startup CD image to the CD icon in the status bar of the virtual machine



window, and then press ENTER, Virtual PC 2004 and Virtual Server 2005 will ignore the operating system that is on the CD or on the CD image.


hope this helps
