Im a dell tech, and i hate those cdrom styles, but, that is what the consumer wants, so we make them. Try starting the machine, then press F2 to enter the BIOS. once in the bios, press the eject button. listen for any noises, (an attempt to eject). if you hear a sound, it means the drive should be capable of ejecting the disc, and perhaps the disc has not seated correctly. If the disc will not eject, you must contact Dell. This is from the DELL dcse site: " Optical Drive The XPS M1330 has a slot-loading optical drive instead of a conventional tray-loading module. There is no mechanical eject mechanism for the drive to eject stuck discs. This means you must replace the drive if a disc gets stuck in the drive. After replacing the drive, disassemble the old drive to remove the disc for the customer."

The lights alone don't tell enough to tell you how to fix it ACPI S3
Suspend to RAM Windows Standby State.
Does it boot if you use a recovery disk or an emergency boot DVD or USB stick?
Detach all the hard drives and peripherals, pull out all the memory except one, Try again. What is the result?
Try it with a different memory module alone, Repeat.
See if you can isolate a bad memory module
Or it could be a bad motherboard. Shut down and unplug, Inspect the capacitors on the board. are any of them swollen, split or leaking?

The first and most important thing you need to do when your laptop is overheating is to clean the fan(s) that provide(s) cooling to the CPU and graphics card. Over time, they build up layers of dust and dirt that slow them down and block airflow.

2009 LCD monitor , 11 years old. and fails on all PCs I am sure.
all have CCLF black lamps, 99% are dead, or dim or even yellow tinged.
ok posted vast times this answer,
if the OSD brightness setting fails then....
the full story is here, 2010 is the first years of LED back lamps
you dont have those.
the CCLF lamps are bad, you can replace them or
buy never LED back lamped monitor, and frankly costs less.

can I assume you turned on any monitor
pushed the OSD menu button of front of iT
then navigated to the brightness OSD section
and it's already fully high.,
yes, then that monitor has bad CCFL backlamps.
they run on 300vdc and the main board inside does that.
the go dim, most of them are now, or dead.
the have 20,000hr life span , very very short lived
compared to new LED monitors, very low life.

Do the flashlight test. Shine flashlight on front of screen at angle and see if you can see an image or lettering. If so, it is probably inverter board. Let me know first if you have an image.
