CD drawer won't stay closed.

  justjill 10:11 02 Dec 06

I'm running Windows XP Home on a Dell machine a year old and recently the CD drawer has refused to stay closed. The only way I can get it to stay closed is if I close it while shutting the machine down but otherwise it reopens almost immediately every time you close it. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

MAny thanks.

Some refer to opening and closing but cause could be similar e.g., diferent virus?

Does it behave similarly in another PC?
Does another drive behave similarly in same PC?

If the above don't work, try opening your pc and (whilst it is turned off) pull the cables from the back of the cd drive, then replace. Sometimes vibration can cause cables to loosen, which can have funny effects, ranging from not working at all to your type of prob.

Hope this helps.
