Hi folks, our business computer crashed Friday with our backup CD in it. Tried to get it to come up and fix the problem, but only screwed it up worse, and still can't get the back up CD out. Luckily, with Bill's input, we had bought a laptop a few weeks ago and wireless router, so I can still get out, and in this case, holler for help.
Does anyone have a computer repair place in the 281-Blanco/1604 area of S.A. they trust to get the computer going again, or at least save my hard drive stuff?
Started with the following "Loading PBR for descriptor 2 disk rea error occurred"
Tried to reboot, couldn't get F8 to work and in the meanwhile messed it up so it now says "No boot device available- strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility" Somewhere along the way, the dang thing locked up and can't eject the CD.
Any idea on where to go to get it fixed or at least save the HD in north S.A.?
Also any idea on projected cost to repair or save HD information?
Any input would be appreciated.

Lets get the cd out first.
Look on the front of the cd drive cover...you will see a very tiny hole...take a paper clip, and use a end to put in there and the cd will open.

Have you tried using the manual eject on the CD Rom or CDRW to get the CD out? If not, then look on the front panel of the CD Rom or CDRW for a small hole. Push a small object (ie paper clip or pin) into the manual eject hole and push gently. The spring loaded mechanism should eject the CD.
