hi just upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, problem i now have is when i try to open the cd/dvd drive it doesnt open . the only way i can open it, is into my computer and right click and eject, coincidence since i upgraded or a different problem, i have read some where that others have the same problem, but cant find any updates thanks Eddie
hi thanks sunnystains does that just open the drive or reset it, cos i can get a small screwdriver behind the case to the button to open it but its the main button on the front of the case that wont open it cheers Eddie
If I'm reading this correctly you can open the CD/DVD drive by pushing the button on the CD/DVD drive just behind the front fascia. If this is correct it could be that front button is not coming into contact with the button on the CD/DVD drive this could be due to part of the button has broken at the back or the drive has come loose and has been pushed back slightly. Try opening the case release the screws and see if you can push the CD/DVD drive forward slightly.
sorry i have not replied sooner , yes you are correct, but i did try what you said ,there is a small micro switch, and it seems to connect ok ,also checked other connections, all ok. the intersting bit is that it worked ok before i installed windows 7 cheers Eddie
