Weird clacking sound in the cd drive of Dell Studio laptop
\015 Whenever i start my new Dell Studio laptop, even when there is no cd in the drive, it starts making this weird sound, as if it is trying to push the cd out. The annoying thing is that sometimes, this sound carries on for quite a while, and the auto-eject button on the panel lights on continously, even when i am not pressing it. Please help me as soon as possible.\015
I was having the same issue. I incidentally thought that the Facial Recognition software and the Web Cam Control Box that auto-launches on startup were annoying, so I disabled them both. It's strange, but I think this might have also fixed the dvd drive issue. It was occurring at each boot up but since disabling said software, it has not happened again. Try it and see if this works for you as well!
If it is new I suggest that you call Dell Customer support. It is Free and they are very good.
