I have been a PC and Laptop Repair tech since 1999, and Got my A+ Cert in 2001.
I worked in a Tech Shop for 5 yrs, moved on to a Local onsite repair. And since Oct. 2009 I have been doing PC Phone support from home.

Answer to "door does not open to put game in."I had this same issue and i fixed it. But it is a rubber belt that needs to be cleaned. Use a paperclip to Manually reject.

Answer to "The motor doesn't spin."I have found that there could be a few possible issues. 1) Bad spindle motor - there are several sites that sell this motor. 2) the black and white cable is unplugged or not connected 100% 3) the drive assembly could be malfunctioning the last possibility is the IC on the system board fairly rare but possible. good luck Matt
