First of all, you want to do an immediate virus scan. There are several virus programs that will do that very thing. A good idea would be to go into safe mode and run both a virus scan and then a spyware scan.

If you need instructions on getting to safe mode, just google it. Works fine.

Also, there are joke programs that do it. Check your start up files to see if anything looks suspicious there. Access that by typing msconfig at the run command. Then go to startup. Remember , if you make changes you will have to reboot.

Move your cursor to the upper left corner of your screen and see if that gives you a menu to get rid of it , too.

Remember something a friend once told me when you are looking for info " Google is your friend !"

CD DOOR WON'T OPEN


Just below the CD/DVD tray there is a tiny hole. Insert a straighten paper clip in this hole and gently push the paper clip until the CD/DVD tray pops out. You can now pull the tray out until it is in the fully opened position to remove the disc.
Try pushing the eject button to see if the tray closes, then push the eject button to see if the tray opens.
If this foes not work then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and it needs to be replaced.

Why does my cd tray keep opening in my laptop. its apresario cq62-421nr


The sensor inside the cd writer does not recognize the closing of the tray. Hence it keeps opening all the time. To stop it from opening hold the tray pressed when it closes for some time. The tray may stop opening. Sometimes it works. Else you have to repair or replace the CD writer.

You might be able to get a recovery CD from the manufacturer instead of where you bought the computer. For E-Machines you can go to https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=eMachines and enter the serial number of your unit to get information on ordering recovery media. The recovery cd will have a factory image of the hard drive on it eliminating the need for an actual Vista CD.

Cant load cd into cd drive


Sounds like the tray is not comming out completly. Before you eject the tray you should notice a very small hole. take a paper clip and straighten it out and push in this hole. The tray will/should start to come out push the paperclip in as far as you can and check to see if this will allow the cd to stay on the tray.

Drivers popping up then diasppearing. Very irritating. Plz help!


If you go to "My computer" and right-click on the CD, you will get another menu. Then choose "Properties"
You should see a tab that says "Auto Play" Using that tab you can select the action that occurs when you put a CD in the machine.

If this doesn't work, let me know and we'll try something else.
