Dell Dimension 5150 CD door closes quickly.

I have a Dell Dimension 5150 with XP Pro. The CD drive door opens, but a second later it will close before you have a chance to put the CD in. Originally it worked fine and the computer has recently had all it's orginal software reinstalled.

If an application is attempting to access the CD drive, the door will close. Put the CD in first and then launch the application.

Also possible a problem with the eject/load mechnism in the CD drive.

Dell dimension 5150 ethernet problem reloaded windows xp home from a windows xp entertainment os. apear fine but not receiving.


Okay, so it seems you installed Microsoft Windows XP Home on a what was Media Center Edition installation, and the ethernet is no longer worker.
Please refer to dell.com's support section, enter your model, and download drivers that you need.
To find drivers you need, Go to start --> control panel and then go to (under classic view) system --> the hardware section, open up device manager, and then look for ones with a yellow big question mark, and get those drivers from dell's website. Burn these drivers to a CD on another computer, or use a USB flash drive if that does work.
Good luck.

Dell Dimension 5150 cd-rom stopped working


Open your tower and reseat all the cables that are running to the CD ROM (generally a flat white cable). Also reseat the other end of the cable to the motherboard too.
Ensure that CD Drive is enabled in BIOS (Press F2 as the system boots up to enter into BIOS) Please get back if you need any further help.

DVD tray automatically opens and closes


Is the drive reading disc properly? if no then just change the drive.

If it can read disc then

1) Do an msconfig & disable startup - just to make sure that there are no pesky script or applcation doing it.

2) change the SATA port on motherboard or toogle between master & slave if IDE cable is been used.

Still if its not working then just change the drive.
