I have reconnected my old computer(ME O/S) after it has stood idle for 2 years and now only opens the safe mode and i can not open the CD tray.I do not wish to connect it to the internet, but only use it for games for the grandchildren , word processing and CD's. How can I bring it back for these purposes please?
If the pc only boots in safe mode then that could be the reason that the cd tray won't open. Safe mode only uses the minimum to get the os running and therefore may have dissabled the cd driver in safe mode use. Have you tried doing a system restore in safe mode to a date before you put the pc into storage?
jack_1 You seem to have the answer. my system restore date goes back to Nov. 2005 and even going back one date further, but after the process i get the messages that it can not restore.Can i open the tray in safe mode ;if so how please?
