How do I open a cd to transfer it to my pc? I have my resume on a cd that someone made for me using his laptop, When I go to My Computer, there isnt anything that shows that it is recognizing the cd drive, so I don't know how to see the resume.

    Can you see a D: drive in My Computer (Or anything other than C:)? If yes, with the CD in the drive, have you tried double clicking on D: to see if it shows you what's on the disc? If no, get your CD drive fixed. Also: Verify that your resume is on a CD and not a DVD. If it's on a DVD, verify that your drive is a DVD drive. DVD drives can also read CDs, CD drive cannot read DVDs.

Put a store purchased CD or dvd in the drive and see if it is seen by computer.
If so, remove it and place your cd in the drive.
If you get a message, format not recog., find out what format or was used to copy cd.
If you are useing VISTA and wish to view a doc. made on a win98 machine, you will have problems.

If the cd/dvd drive is not seen under mycomputer, you may have a damaged drive or may need to reconfigure it to be seen by your computer.
Check your jumper settings on the drive.
But first try a new disk and see what comes up.

First you need to make sure you have the same program on your PC that was used to create the document... then check in your "my computer folder. if you still don't see it you need to go into your device manager and repair your drivers for your CD-ROM drive.

How to open my cd tray when my senior button isnt working

Does this sound like; how to open the door, when the door handle is off?
Most of the time you replace the door handle or you ask a tech to repair this. Same for your CD tray. Let someone repair the button. Or if you are skilled in electronics, perhaps you manage to repair it yourself?
When you are not giving details about brand nor model, can't give more specific answers. Sorry

My dell latitude L400 wont turn on

What you are saying is that you were downloading a file from the internet and you shut down your computer while the file was still transferring.
The file is a temp and it may have been deleted.use a download manager like IDM , with resume capability. Your browser does not have resume capability. Start over.don't turn off your computer when you have file transfers. You can lose data.

Computer is making a loud noise when i start up and giving a start up failed error. It says Windows resume loader. The last attempt to resume from its previous location failed. Attempt to resume again? use...

Unfortunately, it sounds like your hard drive has crashed. You'll have to change your hard drive or take it to someone who can replace it for you. If you have a bunch of preinstalled software but don't have the disks to reinstall them it might be cheaper to replace the computer.

No cd for Dell axim 30

This isnt too bad, if you are using windows vista, the CD is obsolete, use the syncing technology in mobile device center to access the storage card/drive inside the pda form your computer and you can do it that way. Windows XP: you can go to the microsoft website and get Activesync which will allow you to transfer files as well. If you are using a mac, I am sorry.
