Question about Packard Bell GCD-R580B (gcdr580b) Internal 8x CD-ROM Drive
My cd door on my packerd bell computer just keeps opening and closing.... It wont stop.. the only time it stop is if i turn the computer off
When this happens it is usually one thing, but could be two.
The most common reason is that the button you use to open and close is stuck in the IN position. Turn the PC off with the drive door held open. Using a paperclip try to get behind the push button and press it outwards.
Second most common problem, the switch the button activates is worn and has failed in the depressed position.
Fortunately, replacement CDROM/DVDROM are rather inexpensive, but you would need a technically savy friend or relative to help you or you can ask your friendly neighborhood computer guru to help. Or, lastly, you can take this into a shop for a replacement as the newer drive will be better and faster than what you have now.
As always, if you have any need for clarification or further questions please do not hesitate to comment back to me.
