It seams as though the ejection belt is slipping or has fallen off. There should be a small hole on the face of the CD/DVD player tray. Push a straightened out paper clip into the hole and it will pop open the tray. Please replace, or have replaced, the drivebelt.

You might have a bad drive,have you tried removing the drive and re-inserting it? You can get replacement drives on ebay or you can also look at surpluscomputers.com they sometimes have them cheap.

The CD will not open. The parameter is incorrect. How do I fix this problem?


On all PC's there is a small hole near the on/off button in the CD where you can insert a pin to open the CD. This will generally force the CD to open.

Computer won't start up - says file missing or corrupt: \windows\system 32\config\system. cannot open cd=rom to use original set-up CD


That folder contains all of your Windows files, so your operating system is no good anymore. So you have to reinstall Windows. It sounds like you have the disc so we just need to get that drive open. To get your CD drive open, you have to use the override system. On most CD drives, there's a little hole on the front. Sometimes it's hard to see. What you need to do it get a paper clip and straighten it out. Then stick the paper clip in that tiny hole. Keep going in until you feel a little catch, then keep pressing. This will mechanically open you CD drive. Just put the disc in and close it up again. Hopefully your reinstallation of Windows will work out. Best of luck!

I have a sony computer, the model where every thing is built in behind the screen. a CD is stuck inside and i cannot remove. anyone have any knowledge on what to do to remove same?


The CD, DVD or BD drive tray may not open when trying to eject a disc. This can occur if there is a mechanical failure, or if there is a disk stuck in the drive.
Please follow the following steps to resolve this issue:
  1. Because some applications can prevent the drive tray from opening, close all open applications.

    NOTE: If the Roxio DirectCD software is running, eject the CD using the Roxio DirectCD software.

  2. Attempt to eject the drive tray using the eject command of the operating system.
  3. Restart the computer to the BIOS by continuously tapping the F2 key on startup and, while in the computer BIOS, press the EJECT button on the computer.

    NOTE: If the drive tray ejects in BIOS, but not in the operating system, reinstall the CD, DVD drive.

Denon CD player DCD 920. When using the open/close button once, the CD-door opens but when it is open, without any waiting time, it immediately closes again. If i operate manually the open/close switch on...


Off the power, and plug off the switch, and try opening it manually. DO NOT force open it. I don't think it would close back since it has no electricity already.
