    My CD -Rom drawer keeps opening and closing at startup and also when trying to put in a c-d to install software.
    It also does the same thing when I want to burn a c-d.
    It will eventualy stay closed so that I can get my work done but it is very maddening to say the least.
    When I open the drawer to put in a disk , it won,t stay open.
    Can anyone out there have a fix?
    I'm very new to computers , but I would like to learn ( old dog ,new tricks, 63 years old ).
    Thanks Much

    Did you check for any virus? Do you've any antivirus installed? Try an online antivirus scan at House Call .

    Also download Startup List from here . Run the program and post back with the results.
