Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop
I have a Dell 5150 and the lower DVD tray keeps opening and closing (constantly) without either electronic or manual instruction. It only happens after the CPU has been on for 4 plus hours (or so). It's driving me nuts. It stops (for a while) when I switch off and re-boot.
Is the drive reading disc properly? if no then just change the drive.
If it can read disc then
1) Do an msconfig & disable startup - just to make sure that there are no pesky script or applcation doing it.
2) change the SATA port on motherboard or toogle between master & slave if IDE cable is been used.
Still if its not working then just change the drive.
