Having problems with your Compaq Presario 6370US (OBDA219A#ABA_1) PC Desktop ?

Drive D is stuck with the CD tray open. After pushing the button to eject a CD the drawer will not shut. I assume the drive is worn out after 7 years of service. The question is how to remove and replace it? Only one side panel is removable and with the drawer open the front doesn't seem to want to come off. There is a green plastic piece covering all the screws that would remove the drive. Thanks for any help.


Answers :

That green plastic piece is attached to the drive making it snap-in, that serves as a lock, find a way to unlock it by clamping or pushing it on sides to release the lock and pull the drive out. Hope this helps.

The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
