Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex SX280 PC Desktop ?
Can't switch DVD drive
\015 I want to swap out my DVD ROM drive for a DVD burner. This machine has a button on the bottom right corner of the DVD rom that you're supposed to be able to push to eject the drive from the machine (I'm told it's hot swappable).\015\012\015\012I got the burner out of the other machine, but this one isn't coming out. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or is my drive just broken?\015
Is there a screw in the bottom of the PC, holding the drive eject button in? Sometimes these will be screwed in to prevent switching them by users, or accidentally, or something.

The power is on to everything else (monitor, speakers, Linskys modem & router, etc.)I am now using our old Dell with the Linksys adapter. So I removed the new dvd-rw drive and re-installed the old cd-rw. Still now power. I
