CD ROM light constantly on, and door won't open with button...

My Compaq has started having problems. I have run an anti virus scan on it, and so far nothing external seems to be the problem. Anyway, sometimes the computer does not want to boot. I have to try several times before it will actually boot all the way. Then the CD ROM light is on, stays on and the only way to open the CD ROM is with a pin. When I open it this way the laser is still on. I have looked at the application processes and clicked on my D: drive and the computer is showing the CD as not in use... but it won't work when you do put a CD into it either. Any ideas?

I need to fully re-install Windows XP, no matter to lose any information on hard disk, I am using my Windows XP CD and the first device for boot is set to be the CD, but I get Boot Manager missing any way....

Step 1:
Open your anti-virus software program and run a full scan on your computer. Delete all quarantined and infected files when the scan is complete. Insert your Windows XP Install CD into your computer's CD/DVD-ROM drive. Restart your computer. Press the "R" button on your keyboard when the screen says "Welcome to Setup." Type in the admin password when prompted. Press "1" and then "Enter" to open the command prompt. Type "fixboot" into the command prompt. Press "Y" when a pop-up box appears, asking you for confirmation. Restart your computer and you should be taken to your desktop.

Responsibly recycle that "dead" computer, and buy a new computer with Windows 8.

I have a HP PC and the DVD CD Rom keeps opening and closing by it self. How can I fix it?

First, with the power off, open the computer case and disconnect the 4-pin power plug from the drive. Then at least the drive won't open and close while you try to figure out what's wrong.

One possibility is that the front panel open/close button on the drive is sticking. Then the drive thinks you're always pressing the button. In that case, replace the drive. New DVD/CD burner drives are only $30 or so, so it isn't worth repairing one. I think you'll probably find the drive is just faulty.

Another possibility is that your computer has a virus. Random drive opening and closing was caused by a virus going around a while ago. I don't remember the virus name, but it was quite a while ago. Still, it's worth checking unless you're absolutely sure you have up-to-date antivirus software and you've been scanning your computer regularly. I would suggest downloading the free version of MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and doing a complete scan to see if it finds anything. If it does, let it correct the problem.

If it turns out to be a virus problem, don't forget to plug the power connector back into the CD drive when you've cleared the trouble.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

PC keeps restarting itself. Trying to log on to my pc ,get to first vista page to choose my account and it restarts. Cant get as far as the start up button to do anything.

Reboot in safe mode (at very first manufacturers start-up screen, press and hold F8, choose "Boot in Safe Mode". When prompted, you can either a) System Restore to an earlier date, or B) load and then run anti-virus software. I would suggest updating your virus definitions first, then running a comprehensive virus scan BEFORE trying the System Restore (many re-boot issues are code-executed, and are usually because of a virus). If you need to do a restore, pick a date well before the problem occured, as is may be an older issue than just the re-boot problem!

Hope this helps!

Laptop keeps turning off and DVD-CD-RW Rom won't work.

The turning off problem may be a memory problem, download and run a memory checker (memtest 1.7 or later) it may also be a virus problem
ensure your virus checker is up to date and run a full scan,these would be a first step to try and solve these issues.

good luck

Infeced virous make folde in a folder.exe

The virus is called "Brontok" or "Rontok". Its much hard to get rid of it. It may cause ur computer to restart while opening any anti virus, cmd.exe, command.exe etc. Only way is to san the drive from some other computer with an updated anti virus.
Format driver with windows installation, instal windows, and install an anti virus before anything else ( do not open any drives except ur windows installation partition ) and get latest updates. Scan and remove virus.

Computer keeps shutting off

First thing that comes to mind is that it is overheating which causes the shutdown problem. When running the ant-virus the computer uses a lot of resources and it gets hot fast. When laptop is turned off, inspect all areas for dust build up around any openings. You can also remove the compartment lids and inspect those too. The best way to clean out dust is to use compressed air that comes in a can and q-tips. Blow the air into all the openings and use the q-tips to whip away dust build up. Once you think that it is clean, turn it on and make sure that the fans are running if your unit has them. While it is running, you can use a free on line scanner that uses less resources just in case it still overheats over time.
With sufficient cooling, your laptop should perform much better too.
