Dell laptop 15 series, continuous eject action after boot up

by vardaram123 / September 29, 2012 8:59 AM PDT

Hi all,
I have a Dell laptop (15 series). So when Windows 7 starts, it tries to eject cd/dvd-s that are in cd case (even when there is no disk inside).
Again, after 2-3 minutes, it runs "eject" again, and this repeating action continues for about 10-15 minutes.
Please help if you know anything about this kind of problem.

1. Boot SAFE MODE to see if that continues.
2. Boot but get to the BIOS setup and does it continue.

3. Sounds like a bit of malware, my Dell i15r does not use a software helper to do that so I'd try items 1 and 2 to sniff out if it's a hardware issue.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
