    My friend has a problem with her computer.When she turns it on all that happens is her cd rom drawer opens and closes constantly. It won't let her access anything. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this?Does this sound like it will have to go to a shop to be fixed? Any ideas even in general is appreciated.
