    I have the same problem. The CD-ROM drive opens during boot up, and every 5 minutes thereafter. Tried to scan with anti-virus, anti-spyware, trojan remover, etc. but problem still exists.

Combo drive opens and closes automatically

Arav you will have to open this unit up, sounds as thought the units slider has passed the spring sensor. with the unit open manually open the tray, there should be a spring lock release on the right with it upside down facing you. slide the tray all the way back in until you hear it click and lock. You may want to do this several times to make sure no plastic pieces have broken off. If you see or find a piece come out then achances are the spring lock mechanism has snapped, not uncommon on this drive. The screws are easily located on the bottom.

Not reading DVD

It's common problem with combo drives in notebooks, they don't seem to last long. Try this:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. If the problem persists the laser is faulty in the drive and the drive will need to be replaced.
