Hi arganamj,

I assume you are using an IBM based PC, not a mac (in other words any computer not a mac). If that is so, then your CD-ROM drive has a mechanical release, not electrical.

Simple way to determine if your CD-ROM is stuck is to insert a punch into the release hole next to the normal eject button on the CD-ROM's front faceplate. It is a small hole about 2 millimeters wide, and if you bend a paper-clip into a straight line it is very easy to press the spring-release mechanism and eject your CD.

If this does not work, then your device is clearly jammed or defective, and would need to be repaired or replaced.

If this does work, inspect the CD tray and make sure there is not a CD stuck inside of the drive. After you have done all of this, and the drive is still having problems ejecting from the machine, it's time to look at your drivers and make sure your computer is talking to your CD-ROM properly and knows how to use it.

You might have to download new drivers from your manufacturer's website in order to repair a broken or missing driver on your machine. I would suggest not attempting re-installation of drivers yourself unless you feel capable of removing windows operating system components.

If you still would like to try that if you are willing to re-install your drivers through trial and error, post again and we can walk you through some of the process of driver installation. Hope that helps.

Drive not instlled


When you bought you monitor there should be a drver CD for the monitor. If you have the CD, pu it in the CD_rom and then if you;re using Windows XP it will automatically open for drive installation. The PC will automatically detect a new hardware and will ask for the driver.The installation wizard will open and you just follow the instruction. Remember the drive is in the CD-rom. Choose CD-rom for drive location.

The cd-rom door not open


Sir,
You have encountered a problem often seeen in LG models. It could have spontaneously generated or as a sideeffect of recent servicing. It is difficult to correct. so an alternative way is use a pin to force open the door.
On the front panel there will be a small mm hole through which insert a straightened paper slip to force eject the door. once door is out a little. pull it or use button to fully take out the tray.

For future, always keep a cd rom inside. that will probably let you eject the tray automatically. Problem occurs usually only withthe empty tray. good luck

Hi 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER. 2. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom 3. To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1. 4. Restart your computer. NOTE: This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs. If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM. This may help. Good Luck
