Cd tray on Computer keeps ejecting while not in use
\015 How do I make it stop ejecting while not in use\015
Hi Deborah.We can try a few steps to resolve this problem.Open the cabinet/Tower and reseat the drive cables.Check in the BIOS(F2 or Delete key on the keyboard on system restart to get to BIOS) and see whether the drive ejects.If it doest do it here,then it could be a windows issue.Even viruses can cause this problem.If it does in BIOS as well,then we need to do more....\015\012Check in device manager for the driver model (Control panel>>System>>Device manager>>CD/DVDROM drives).\015\012Click on the +sign beside the CD/DVDROM drives option and check the complete name of the drive.\015\012Google for %Drive model% Firmware and install the firmware.That is the only possible solution.Samsung drives do have this known issue
