Can you see a small hole at the bottom to the left or right of the draw or even below it. If you can and can get your hands on a paper clip, very gently insert the paper clip. That should release the draw.

Failing that, and depending what you have insode the draw it may be worth you buying a new one.?

I cannot hear sound system play cds and videos


Every CD/DVD-ROM drive has an audio port opened. An audio cable connects to the back side of the CD/DVD-ROM and connects to the motherboard. Most MB's have two four pin audio ports, one slot white in color and a second black in color. As far as the CD/DVD-ROM not reading the disk. Make sure the disk is free from scratches; oils from you're fingers or just plain dust. Open the drawl and blow out the CD-ROM drive or buy a CD cleaner which will clean the internal laser. These days it’s hard to find a CD/DVD ROM drive with a warranty longer than 1 year. Most ppl buy a new one when it fails to read CD's.

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....

New motherboard will not boot


It appears that you are aware of Motherboard jumpers.

1. Reset BIOS settings by CMOS Clear jumper ( Location of jumber is given on the sticker / manual of motherboard )

2. Try updating BIOS of your motherboard from the following link :
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Filter_Results.aspx?strOSs=All&strTypes=All&ProductID=2838&lang=eng&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems

3. Plug only Optical Driver / Hard disk at a time and check.

4. Contact your vendor and get the motherboard replaced.
