Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Just got it. How does one open the disk drive on

\015 Just got it. How does one open the disk drive on the right side to insert a disk? Where is there a basic how-to manual for this PC?\015

Answers :

There should be button on the front of the drive to open it. Try looking for an "Idiots Guide to PC's" or "Wally's Guide to PC's" on Amazon or in your local book shop. Both these series are very good.
