I have a hp Pavilion 760u.k. machine and all of a sudden I have problems.

1) The cd tray will not open on pressing the front bar as normal. ( I have just put in a lens cleaner and it is still there as I cannot get it out.

2)There is no sound, when I could open the tray on windows media player. I t says cannot play file or I have no devices installed.

Running windows xp home.
512 ram
60gb hard drive
Can anyone help?

Hi PEP

does pc recognise drive on startup? is it listed under my pc?

try disconnecting power leads to drive and reconnecting - or wait for a more intelligent reply!

if you are in mallorca i can give you a spare x52 drive

to get your cd out push a straightened out paper clip in the hole in the front, under the tray
