Cd tray wont open

CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Not start the OS

This is the Notebook PC category.

Posting, "....and the VoltageS are correctly on the power supply.....makes me think we are talking about a Desktop PC here.

3.3 Volts
5 Volts
12 Volts (All DC)

Green color LED (Light Emitting Diode) referred to, is the motherboard power LED.

All the power cables from the Power Supply, plugged into the motherboard?




What are the voltages of the SMPS?

Post back in a Comment as to the computer manufacturer name, and model number. (Plus questions I asked)

Found on the back for a desktop computer, usually next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower (Case)
I have seen some models (Dell) that there is a small front door you open, and the model number is down towards the bottom, on the inside. (Of computer, not door)

While I wait for your reply, in the meantime unplug the power cable to the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), and the harddrive.
Remove the Ram Memory.

Plug the computer back into power. Motherboard LED light on?
We are removing some devices that require power, to see if the motherboard LED power light comes on.

Hold the phone..............or are you referencing to the Green LED light that is on the back of the Power Supply?

Scroll down a little to the photo. That Green LED light?

Cd/DVD combo not detected by windows , when i placed the CD i am not getting any lights on CD drive

Sounds like the jumper setting is wrong, take it out and out it as master or if you are already using a drive as Master then change it to CS (cable select).

Tecra M2 doesn't boot is it a processor problem?

given the symptoms, it points to motherboard.. if it was processor, video or ram. it wouldnt boot at all and you'd just get error beeps from your laptop. i'd first try resetting the bios, by removing the bios battery for 30 min, then putting it back in. if that doesnt work try changing it out, usually costs under 8 bucks. if that doesnt work then I would change out the motherboard, if its cost effective.

My laptop doesnt know it has a cd/dvd drive

Can you manually run the CD by opening "my computer" and doubleclicking the CD drive? If it doesnt even work that way your CD drive is probably bad and will need a replacement.

Hope this helps!
