Question about Compaq (224130-001) Internal 4x CD-ROM Drive
I forced the old disc out then put the computer back together. Now drawer opens at will. I can close it but after a few moments it opens itself again and stays open Inserting a CD doesn't change anything.
SOURCE: my cd/dvd opens then closes
> I've already replaced it once
Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.
Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.
But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
