Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

PC Dell desktop has light on CD-R/W drive but cd is not opening (files not read). No sound of whirling/movement in drive; is it dead?


Answers :

Turn the unit off...
\015\012Look at the face of the CD/DVD drive for a small hole.
\015\012Find a Hat pin or large needle and insert in that hole.
\015\012You can straiten out a paper clip
\015\012You must be level and not off to any sides..
\015\012This will give you access to whatever disk is in drive and remove it.
\015\012Close the drive and restart the unit.
\015\012If all looks ok, try a new CD or DVD.
\015\012If the same problem comes back, disconnect the power and IDE cable in the rear of the drive and replace with the same.

Yep it sure sounds like its dead.

A friend did a quick look at it and suggested the motherboard was gone. I'm assuming if the hard drive was bad the computer would at least boot up, but I don't even get the start up screen or any
