Wow, so many replies!

The open tray issue is normally linked to the laser itself. You do NOT have to replace the entire drive, as doing so may cause you further problems.

If your 360 is under warranty, send it in to be replaced.

If not, then there are things to try!

Open the console (using the various online tutorials) and remove the DVD-ROM drive. Open the drive and you'll have access to the laser. Get a Q-tip (cotton bud) and moisten one end with some boiled water. Rub gently over the lens of the laser, then use the other end to dry. Try the game again.

If the above doesn't work, purchase another drive assembly, matching what you already have. You could just buy the laser, but there's no point if it's something other than the laser (and you get one with a new drive). If you have a Hitachi drive, make sure you buy a Hitachi. The same with a Toshiba-Samsung. Keep the same drive type. New drives can be purchased from Ebay. For Toshiba Samsung's, either the MS25 or MS28 will be fine as the insides are exact. Hitachi's are likewise: any version will do.

Here's the good part: you don't need to mess with the firmware on your drive, since the problem is mechanical. Carefully remove the DVD logic board from your faulty drive (the circuit board inside the DVD-ROM itself) and get a Sharpie/Marker and tick it/sign it/etc. Something which you can distinguish one from the other. The boards will look the same and you don't want to mix them up!.

Set your board to one side and get your replacement drive. Open it up too and remove the board in the same way. Now put your board in this new drive, carefully replacing the cables (there are guides online for this too). Close the drive and try it.

Because you're keeping the PCB from your drive, your DVD key will match still and you won't have any configuration problems!

You say corrupt, in what way exactly? Do you get any specific error numbers/messages?

Have you tried Access repair program? Compact and Repair. If not, use it. But ensure that you made a backup, it is necessary because all the recovery tips can make the damage even worse.

Also try Jet Compact Utility. This tool created by Microsoft and it is much like Compact and Repair, but more successful in repairing.

If no one of above advice helps, then perhaps you need more powerful solution. In this case try to run a good third-party. I would recommend Recovery Toolbox for Access. It must help you. https://access.recoverytoolbox.com/

To fix this issue you can follow the
below mentioned workaround :



- Check your Internet and Outlook
Express account settings and double check that you have entered the
correct password and user name.


- Check your Firewall and Anti-virus
settings as sometimes this blocks the sending and receiving of
messages.


- Check if there is a corrupt
message stuck in your Outbox.

- A corrupt Outlook express dbx file
may also cause this issue so it is required to go for solution.

How to Turn Keyboard Lighting On / Off Tulie Finley-Moise
'
June 28, 2019
Laptop keyboard lighting has changed the computing game and has made space for nighttime users to power on through the darkness. The vast majority of modern laptop computers come with backlit keyboards in addition to boasting a number of other fancy features that may distract from this rather basic, but wholly necessary feature.
So, you've got a new computer and you're not quite used to the many shortcuts that allow you to change certain settings with the simple click of a button. When the sun goes down and you've still got hours of work to go, you'll want to know how to turn on keyboard lighting so you can soldier on through the night.
Let's break down how to make your PC work for you, delving into how to turn on your keyboard light, how to turn off your keyboard light, and the fixes to some troubleshooting errors you may run into with your HP laptop.
How to turn on a backlit keyboard? If your HP notebook computer has a backlit keyboard, take a look at the top bar of your keyboard and locate the F5 button. This button may even be labeled with a backlight icon. Simply clicking this button while pressing the Fn button located at the bottom row of your keyboard will leave you with keyboard lighting operational magic.
It may be a simple on/off or, on some models, you can adjust the brightness of the backlighting.
Also, depending on your computer model, your PC may be configured to control the backlit keyboard via the F9 or F11 button rather than the F5 button. Practice the same simultaneous Fn + F11 operation to turn on a backlight keyboard light.
How to turn off a backlit keyboard? Once morning hits and the natural sunshine illuminates your keyboard, you may find you have no need for the keyboard light to be on. In order to turn off the backlight on your laptop keyboard, press the same corresponding keys that allowed you to turn them on.
This could be a simple F5, F9, or F11 key press, or a dual-action Fn + F5, F9, or F11 key press.
How to adjust brightness on a backlit keyboard? Your productivity depends on a number of particular elements that can make or break your flow. Sometimes it's the brightness of your screen or your keyboard that can throw you off or exhaust your sensitive retinas.
In order to adjust the brightness on your keyboard backlights, press the backlight function key a couple of times for a dimmer illumination. This button alone functions as your one-stop-shop for all keyboard light operations.
How to change the color of a backlit keyboard? Gamers saddled up for leaderboard success with an HP OMEN laptop have the option to toy with the color of their backlights as well. It's no secret that gaming laptops often come with funky backlight features that add a certain edge to any competitor's spirit.

Zoned backlighting

HP OMEN laptops feature zoned backlighting that enables users to assign and modify different backlight colors to specific keys and keyboard zones. Gamers use a number of keys to explore, attack, and strategize, so having visual segmentation helps simplify the interface for optimized precision.
For example, a PC gamer might want to assign red backlight colors to movement keys (WASD keys and arrow keys) and assign a blue light to item keys. The user will be able to hit each key with confidence, even if their eyes aren't zeroed in on the keyboard.
In order to change the color of a backlit HP OMEN laptop keyboard, follow these six steps:
  1. Open OMEN Command Center from your Windows taskbar or via the Windows Start menu
  2. Select "Lighting" located on the left navigation sidebar
  3. At the top-right corner, make sure you select "Keyboard." You will see three available modes: Animation, Static, and Off
  4. Select "Static" to manually assign specific colors to specific areas of the keyboard. The "Template" dropdown menu will reveal six different preloaded templates and a "Custom" option that allows you to design your own keyboard segmentation. These pre-existing templates will include WASD, FPS, MOBA, MMO, P1-P6, and All Keys
  5. After selecting a template, you will see a color guide at the bottom of the OMEN Command Center that will allow you to assign colors on the basic guide of advanced color options of your own selection
  6. Press "Apply" and marvel at your colorful keyboard setup!
How can I animate my HP OMEN backlit keyboard? One of the coolest features integrated into HP OMEN laptops is their capacity for keyboard light animation. Designed to give gamers a more immersive experience, HP OMEN laptops can be configured to brighten and pulse with the bass and treble within your PC. So whether you're the shooter ready to aim and fire, or the victim of a fatal game-changing blow, your keyboard will come to life with your game scape.
In order to animate the colors of your backlit HP OMEN laptop, follow these seven steps:
  1. Open OMEN Command Center from your Windows taskbar or via Windows Start menu
  2. Select "Lighting" located on the left navigation sidebar
  3. At the top-right corner, make sure you select the keyboard
  4. Select "Animation" under "Mode" to assign specific color-shows to the keyboard
  5. The "Effect" dropdown menu will reveal nine different preloaded animation settings that allow you to design your own keyboard segmentation
    1. These pre-existing animations include Color Cycle, Starlight, Breathing, Ghosting, Ripple, Wave, OMEN X, Raindrop, and Audio Pulse
  6. After selecting an effect, you will see a color scheme guide at the bottom of the HP OMEN Command Center.
    1. Pre-loaded animation themes include OMEN Galaxy, OMEN Volcano, OMEN Jungle, and OMEN Ocean
    2. You can also create your own color scheme by choosing "Custom"
    3. Modify the speed and direction of the animation with the sliders located at the bottom right
  7. Preview your animation creation and press "Apply" to implement changes
Can I install a backlit keyboard on my laptop? If your computer does not come with an integrated backlit keyboard it'll be incredibly difficult, perhaps even impossible, to install one unless you're a seasoned computer engineer. Integrating a backlit keyboard is not as simple as mere installation; there are a number of components and programming procedures that must be taken into account as well.
Unlike their bigger desktop sibling, laptops are smaller, slimmer, and more intricate due to their compact nature. That means that they're generally more difficult to take apart and reassemble. For inexperienced non-professionals, getting underneath the keyboard plate without proper training or proper tools may do more harm to your PC than anything else.
If you're looking to upgrade your laptop to a high-tech backlit keyboard laptop, HP has a number of exceptional options for all types of PC users.

Tiger Direct has it for $170, but you should be able to get a student edition for much less. Try Sam's Club or Costco for the student edition.

Note that Microsoft is under court order to stop selling the product as of October this year due to patent infringement.
