Not opening in the computer DVD/CD player.

I looked at the top and at the bottom of a solution for this problem.

I bought my current laptop with Windows 8 already installed on it.

My computer is a HP Pavilion. I bought it in November.

I have read every thread possible solution I can find about this issue but my habit of CD/DVD drive open. I can't eject it in my computer. No matter how hard I try to fix it, he just used open. I wouldn't change anything. It was working fine this morning. I shut down my computer for a few hours and when I got to the top and the player running would be more open. It does not sound as if his attempts to open it. There is no light when I press the button.

I can open it with the paper clip method, but I'm not sure it's a good permanent solution. Is that what I have not tried I could?


In the file Explorer - right click the drive - Eject

    Malware can stop security to run programs.

    Have you tried to use these programs in Mode safe mode with networking that I advised you of? :

    'Advanced options boot (including safe mode).

    "The Advanced Boot Options screen lets you start Windows in advanced troubleshooting mode. You can access the menu by turning on your computer and pressing the F8 key before starting Windows (press F8 at the rate of about once per second)"

    Also, follow this step:

    Once in Safe Mode with network, download and run RKill before the scan with these programs.

    RKill does NOT remove the malware; It stops the Malware process that gives you a chance to remove it with your security programs.

  • Problems with error Windows Media Player, that Windows Media Player is not installed on the computer.

    We have a computer that is running Windows 7 and (I think) Windows Media Player 12.  When I start ==> all programs ==> windows media player, the program starts and it seems to work.  It is a work computer, so no video or audio file is saved.

    We have an online seminar that the user wants to participate in, and when we click on the link to get the webinar, an error message appears saying that Windows Media Player is not installed on the computer.

    We use Firefox (version reasonably updated, but do not know which) for internet.

    I used the "fix it" tool on the website of Microsoft, but that does not solve anything.  He said it sets some configuration settings.  I thought that maybe uninstall and reinstall it can work, but I can't understand completely uninstall because it isn't in my list of programs in the control panel.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any ideas you may have.


    (Moved to programs)

    Uninstall and reinstall could be done by searching for and opening the option "turn on or off Windows features", but I don't think it will help.

    Instead, what you need is a Windows Media Player plugin for your browser (Firefox).

    But before you spend effort on it, I would test to see if it's really the solution.  Try to join your webinar with Internet Explorer (where the WMP plugin is built).  If it works, you can be reasonably sure to know how to make it work with Firefox.

    Before I continue with the troubleshooting steps I may need a few more details to better understand the issue.
    1. what operating system do you use?
    2. do you receive any error messages?
    3. are you having the same problem with other USB devices?
    4. have you tried plugging the machine into the other USB Ports?
    5. did you of recent changes on the computer before this problem?
    6. What is the serial number and model of the MP3 player?
    Method 1:
    We will first try to plug in other USB Ports and on another computer to make sure that there is no problem with the digital mp3 player.

  • CD drive does not open and the light does not work

    original title: single CD player problem

    The problem with my CD player seems to be unique I can't find an answer, or someone else with the same problem online.

    My computer is custom built, the CD player lasted me 1.5 years no problem, not until one day I realize, it does not open and the light does not work on it, I ordered a new drive and installed that one, still does not work. so, I replaced the SATA cable which connects to the motherboard, still does not.

    When I go to my computer the drive appears but when I right click > eject it says: "year error occurred while ejecting CD drive D".  It also appears in devices such as SCSI CdRom Device Manager but I am not sure if it's actually my CD player.

    I also tried troubleshooting and no solution.

    WTFFF ideas? I really hope that its not the motherboard

    There are two cables you need to connect to the drive, one for data and one for power.  You must connect both training at work.  If you only have the data cable is plugged and not cable power which would be a possible cause of the problem that you see.

    "Ryanb1290" wrote in the new message: * e-mail address is removed from the privacy... *

    Sorry, im just of knowledge about computer hardware.  you say that I should try a different agreement or another port to plug in?

    I tried to connect on a couple different SATA ports on the motherboard.

  • Firefox does not open after the update. Cannot open the profile technical, even when you use the directory in cmd line path

    I'm using Firefox on a Windows 7 computer. Firefox does not open after the last update. I read the help articles and it seems that I need to create a new profile because my settings were probably corrupted. I'm unable to open the profile technical, even when you use the directory in cmd line path. I tried the following commands in the command line:

    Firefox Pei
    "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla" PEI

    Nothing happens with every order.

    I am also running Norton Internet Security. I read a help of virtual navigation features Re article that can cause a problem. The article says to check the setting of virtualization in the internet security software and to clear the virtual cache. I went through all the menus of settings in Norton Internet Security version and I don't see anything that looked like in "virtualization" settings, so I guess that does not apply to me. "

    If you have any ideas, I had appreaciate that your expertise!

    You may have installed one or more variants of the malware "VSearch' ad-injection. Please back up all data, and then take the steps below to disable it.

    Do not use any type of product, "anti-virus" or "anti-malware" on a Mac. It is never necessary for her, and relying on it for protection makes you more vulnerable to attacks, not less.

    Malware is constantly evolving to work around defenses against it. This procedure works now, I know. It will not work in the future. Anyone finding this comment a couple of days or more after it was published should look for a more recent discussion, or start a new one.

    Step 1

    VSearch malware tries to hide by varying names of the files it installs. It regenerates itself also if you try to remove it when it is run. To remove it, you must first start in safe mode temporarily disable the malware.

    Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or an earlier version, or if a firmware password is defined, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can not do this. Ask for other instructions.

    Step 2

    When running in safe mode, load the web page and then triple - click on the line below to select. Copy the text to the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination:


    In the Finder, select

    Go ▹ go to the folder...

    from the menu bar and paste it into the box that opens by pressing command + V. You won't see what you pasted a newline being included. Press return.

    A folder named "LaunchDaemons" can open. If this is the case, press the combination of keys command-2 to select the display of the list, if it is not already selected.

    There should be a column in the update Finder window. Click this title two times to sort the content by date with the most recent at the top. Please don't skip this step. Files that belong to an instance of VSearch will have the same date of change for a few minutes, then they will be grouped together when you sort the folder this way, which makes them easy to identify.

    Step 3

    In the LaunchDaemons folder, there may be one or more files with the name of this form:

    com Apple.something.plist

    When something is a random string, without the letters, different in each case.

    Note that the name consists of four words separated by dots. Typical examples are:

    com Apple.builins.plist

    com Apple.cereng.plist

    com Apple.nysgar.plist

    There may be one or more items with a name of the form:


    Yet once something is a random string, without meaning - not necessarily the same as that which appears in one of the other file names.

    These names consist of three words separated by dots. Typical examples are:



    Sometimes there are items (usually not more than one) with the name of this form:

    com.something .net - preferences.plist

    This name consists of four words (the third hyphen) separated by periods. Typical example:

    com.jangly .net - preferences.plist

    Drag all items in the basket. You may be prompted for administrator login password.

    Restart the computer and empty the trash.

    Examples of legitimate files located in the same folder:

    com Apple.Installer.osmessagetracing.plist

    com Apple.Qmaster.qmasterd.plist

    com Apple.aelwriter.plist

    com Apple.SERVERD.plist

    com Tether.plist

    The first three are clearly not VSearch files because the names do not match the above models. The last three are not easy to distinguish by the name alone, but the modification date will be earlier than the date at which VSearch has been installed, perhaps several years. None of these files will be present in most installations of Mac OS X.

    Do not delete the folder 'LaunchDaemons' or anything else inside, unless you know you have another type of unwanted software and more VSearch. The file is a normal part of Mac OS X. The "demon" refers to a program that starts automatically. This is not inherently bad, but the mechanism is sometimes exploited by hackers for malicious software.

    If you are not sure whether a file is part of the malware, order the contents of the folder by date modified I wrote in step 2, no name. Malicious files will be grouped together. There could be more than one such group, if you attacked more than once. A file dated far in the past is not part of the malware. A folder in date dated Middle an obviously malicious cluster is almost certainly too malicious.

    If the files come back after you remove the, they are replaced by others with similar names, then either you didn't start in safe mode or you do not have all the. Return to step 1 and try again.

    Step 4

    Reset the home page in each of your browsers, if it has been modified. In Safari, first load the desired home page, then select

    ▹ Safari preferences... ▹ General

    and click on

    Set on the current Page

    If you use Firefox or Chrome web browser, remove the extensions or add-ons that you don't know that you need. When in doubt, remove all of them.

    The malware is now permanently inactivated, as long as you reinstall it never. A few small files will be left behind, but they have no effect, and trying to find all them is more trouble that it's worth.

    Step 5

    The malware lets the web proxy discovery in the network settings. If you know that the setting was already enabled for a reason, skip this step. Otherwise, you should undo the change.

    Open the network pane in system preferences. If there is a padlock icon in the lower left corner of the window, click it and authenticate to unlock the settings. Click the Advanced button, and then select Proxies in the sheet that drops down. Uncheck that Auto Discovery Proxy if it is checked. Click OK, and then apply.

    Step 6

    This step is optional. Open the users and groups in the system preferences and click on the lock icon to unlock the settings. In the list of users, there may be some with random names that have been added by the malware. You can remove these users. If you are not sure whether a user is legitimate, do not delete it.

  • Nevertheless, Firefox will not open on my computer account, but on others.

    I had installed the new firefox 28, after which everything seemed good. But when later I turned on my computer, firefox does not open despite the number of times I clicked on it. I tried 'security mode' as well. Or open anything and does not appear in the Task Manager. However, the options of firefox opens. But there is nothing useful there.
    Firefox works on other computer accounts, just not mine.
    I rebooted the computer several times and I tried to uninstall and install. Nothing.
    And nothing came on an AVG scan.
    Help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Do a clean reinstall and delete the program folder before Firefox to (re) install a new copy of the current version of Firefox.

    Download a new copy of Firefox and save the file to the desktop.

    If possible to uninstall your current version of Firefox to clean the Windows registry and settings in the security software.

    • Do NOT remove the "personal data" when you uninstall your current version of Firefox, because this will remove all profile folders and you lose personal data such as bookmarks and passwords including data profiles created by other versions of Firefox.

    Delete the program folder Firefox before installing newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.

    • (32-bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
    • (Windows 64 bit) "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla.

    Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and will not be affected by a uninstall and (re) install, but make sure that 'delete personal data' is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.

    If you keep problems also create a new profile.

    Hi Alex_enko,

    If you are unable to complete the installation of the El Capitan, here are a few things to try:

    Open the Mac App Store, click on the purchase tab and see what the status of your download.  If the download is interrupted, you can take.

    Once the download is complete, check to see if the file 'install OS X El Capitan' is in the Applications folder.  If this is the case, double-click the file to open it and run the Setup program.  This application is removed from the Applications folder once the installation is complete.

    If the installation does not complete, restart the computer using safe mode and try again.  Here are some links with information about these processes.

    Resume interrupted iTunes Store downloads

    Try safe mode if your Mac does not end commissioning
