Emachine hard drive door will not open (how to repair?)

\015 The hard drive door will not open. When the external eject button is depressed, the door sounds as if it is going to open but it does not. The same happens when the internal eject button is used. Will I need a new hard drive or can the door be repaired?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

Answers :

Assuming this means the CD drive rather than the Hard Drive (which doesn't normally have a link to the outside world).......

\015\012Unless something from outside is very obviously fouling the door, the problem is probably internal to the drive. With the price of replacement drives these days (shockingly low), I wouldn't even bother opening the drive to investigate what's wrong - I'd just put a new (probably higher spec) one in.

\015\012They're all a standard size and fitting and fitting a replacement is a "no surprises" job.

I have an E-Machine desktop PC that is failing to boot. It is running on windows 2000. When it starts booting, it says that one of the files needed for booting is missing. It further tells me to run a setup disk to repair the missing file. The problem is that when I run a setup disk, just before it displays the window that prompts me either to press Enter for OS setup or R for repair, it is presenting with a blue screen. I tried to use other setup disks, no change. I also tried to scan the hard

I have corrupted files in Windows XP and EMachines provides "Restore CDs" But with my NEW LG widescreen monitor the instructions on how to startup the CDs is actually cut off. So when I attempt to load the CDs, all I get is a listing of the folders and files on that CD...it does not AUTOSTART. So there must be a FUNCTION KEY or something to get the program to start, so it can reload a new version of XP on the hard drive.
