Having problems with your Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop ?

Cd drawer keeps opening and closing

\015 Some days when computer is turned on, the cd drawer starts opening and closing, but it DOESN'T happen EVERY time computer is on. We have tried re-starting the computer, and sometimes it helps, but not always. No children have access to computer, and we don't have food or drink near computer, so that is not an issue. Also, I'm not sure of my Gateway model; it is a desk-top model. \015
