DVD drawer will not open

  1. All of a sudden the DVD drawer will not open so as to put in a disk.
    Should I attempt to go inside the Tower and find the problem? Or take the Tower to a computer store and get prepared to get "ripped off".

    DVD draw will not open

    There was no DVD or CD in the drawer.
    Someone told me how to use a straightend paper clip to manully open it, and now it is back to working as usual.

    When this happens again, just reboot the computer. As soon as Windows reboots start hitting the eject button. At some point in there during POST the drive should open because Windows isn't confused and refusing to let the drive open. If it doesn't open at any point before Windows gets loaded back up there is a hardware problem somewhere.
