Are you trying to remove the entire drive? or just a CD from inside the drive?

most CD drives have a pin-sized hole just below the drive tray (where you insert the CD) which will cause the drive to eject the tray as long as it is powered.

removing the drive itsself is not overly difficult either.
--Simply power off your machine, unplug it from the wall and wait a few minutes for any residual capacitance to bleed off (general safety precaution).
--Then open the outer case (normally held on by thumb screws or hex screws, you may need a screwdriver to do this)
--once the case is open/off, locate the CD drive inside the machine. simply unplug any cables AT THE DRIVE (do not unplug any cables at the main board unless you really know what you're doing or have to because often there are multiple things plugged in there and you could cause a more serious problem by doing so.)
--after everything is unplugged from the drive, locate the mounting screws and remove them (sometimes they are clips, other times screws or hex bolts). this will allow you to remove the drive itsself from the case.
--once the drive is out, put the case back on the machine and plug everything back in and you'll be good to go minus one CD drive.

hope this solution helps you, and please do not forget to rate me.

I have an emcahine T5224 it was given to me ive tried fixing it and determined its not the HDD because it loads the OS on my other computer and works just fine but for some reason it stops and says there...


Hi,

You stated that it loads that OS on the other computer. Is this by taking out the hard drive and putting into another PC? If it is, then I would have thought there is h/w issue elsewhere in your PC...

Usually if you have a message saying that it could not load windows properly, it is an OS issue which I would recommend you fix by using your emachines recovery disks.

Hope that helps

Disc tray will not open e-machine T5224


This is not uncommon with older CD/DVD drives.

There should be a very small hole on the front of the drive that can be used to manually eject the disk.

Straighten out a paper clip and insert it in the hole. It may take a little fiddling but you should be able to get your disk out.

Unfortunately, this indicates that you drive is failing so you should replace it soon.

I hope this helps.

You can download an OEM version from bittorrent sites, and as long as you have the genuine certificate of authentication label on the pc case you can install and activate it legally. Just make sure you get the correct version to match the label, e.g Home or Professional.

How do i install a new graphics card in an emachine t5224?


If you're replacing the graphics card then it should go into the same slot as the one you are replacing. To do this, turn off the machine, remove the old card (if it's an AGP card they'll be a card lock on the inside end of the card where it plugs into slot). Remove the card lock, and then remove the card. Reinstall your new card. Keep in mind that your new card must be the same type as the old one AGP or PCI. The slots for these are different and you could damage the card and the slot.

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
