I have an HP Pavilion a1330n. The DVD Rom drawer keeps opening and closing every few seconds. It may stop for a short while but then starts again constantly & is driving me mad. The Computer is about a year old (give or take a couple of months eith way -cannot remember when exactly I purchased it & cannot find the blasted receipt!!!)
I have tried a variety of virus scans all to no avail & wonder whether it may be a hardware problem rather than a software issue.

Unless you can do electronic repair yourself and have the schematics for the drive it will be far cheaper and easier for you to simply replace it. Any DVD drive for computers will fit in there. I would buy a new one rather than used so you make sure and get the software with it. Replacing the drive is a 30 minute job at most.
The trouble started with an error to close and open the DVD drawer. It indicated "close" when the drawer was open, or "no disc" when the DVD was inside, and I had to try many times before I get the right response and go on with the procedures. But then it also started playing just a few MP3 tracks and stopping to work, showing again the inserted DVD data. Later H02, and then H07 and STOP. It doesn't even start playing stuffs, movies or MP3 tracks!
