My cd/dvd burner driver is not working nor will it open

Sounds like the drive likely died or became disconnected within the laptop. Since it is a laptop you should take it into a compaq service provider and ask them to replace or repair it, it will likely be cheap and fairly easy. I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself however, unless you are familiar with the innards of a laptop. Hope this helps, good luck.

The dvd door will not open

The ray mechanism is probably stuck or dead. This is really easy to fix yourself if you're not worried about opening it up. Find a disassembly guide for that model and see if you can unstick it inside the drive (its a sliding thing on the side, not to be confused with the laser guides). If the actual mechanism has died then it'll need replacing. You can usually find them on ebay, just make sure the model numbers are right. email, with any questions.

My computer have only 190 MB RAm. it's work very slowly. What I can do to upgrade ? And my DVD drive can't read any disk.

In reality you have a stick of 256 MB DDR memory. You are seeing just 190 because the rest is reserved to the video chip.
To upgrade it is dead easy: just buy another DDR memory stick (preferably a 1 GB one) and insert it next to the one you have now.
If your dvd can't read any disks then it has died , replace it, it's a cheap part.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games

You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

Conia M580 DVD player has died, cannot open disc tray to retrieve DVD disc from player. Cannot unlatch the disc tray manually, as there's no pin-hole near the disc tray, unlike most (more expensive) DVD...

Easy... follow these instructions
  • unplug from the mains
  • take the cover off (3 screws on back panel, 1 screw each side, sticker on top front)
  • You will see the DVD disk in the player drive
  • Remove the plastic ******** top of the drive - 2 x small phillips screws
  • Lift out the DVD disk.... done.
