DVD drawer opening at boot up for example

1 The DVD drawer opens sometimes at boot up and at other times. 2 The sound scheme no longer operates though the testing of sounds does. 3 To click on a link in Outlook Express no longer takes me to Internet Explorer. Instead I have to right click on the link > Copy then bring IE up and paste it for a search. TIA

Have you loaded or uninstalled any CD DVD burning Software. As this kind of Software Contains drivers for the Drive other than Windows own Drivers. If you Have NERO I would be inclined to try reinstall it

Sadly apart from the forementioned problems I now get a blue screen on a daily basis. The next time it occurs I intend to take a photograph of it and load it into Photoshop. However. Any ideas regarding passing it on to an expert?

I am ending this topic but still with problems. However I did find that if the internet was disconnected then I didn't get any blue screens. Also going on to Skype caused the BSOD (blue screen of death). I photographed these BSODs and found the following: NTFS.sys; WIN32K.sys; FLTMGR.sys and NVD.disp(?) were problems. The latter I discovered appeared to be due to a corrupted NVideo driver which I uninstalled and then downloaded from the NVidia site. Skype etc. now OK Hope this might help other. I appreciate you input.
