Disc drive won't open


CD/DVD drive?

Some have a tiny hole, right under the tray that comes out. Use a paperclip in the hole to manually open the tray.

(Some desktop computer towers have a door in front, that needs to be eased open first, then access to the actual CD/DVD drive unit can be obtained)

If you are not able to get the disc tray to open itself, you can manually open it before starting the computer by pressing a paperclip into the tiny hole on the front. This manually releases the tray. Then start it up, and try to enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2. In the BIOS setup, make sure that the bootup priority is set to the CDROM drive. Restart, and hope for the best! :)

Vaio PCV-W30- The computer stops at the blue Windows XP screen and will not load Windows. The DVD drive will not open. Cant do a restore. Any suggestions?


Should be a small hole in DVD drive lid.
Turn off computer and carefully insert a straightened paper clip.
Gently push & the lid should pop out.
Then you can open the drive & use the windows cd to repair/restore

Did you try the paper clip treatment?

There is usually a small pin hole somewhere on the front of such devices. Insert a straightened paperclip and release the internal catch.
