Does it still happen?
I've seen this on a few other forums, but not here -- was wondering if anyone has experienced this or has ideas for fixing.
the DVD drive on my days-old Inspiron 1525 randomly pops open with no real rhyme or reason. Most often it happens when I'm doing something like this--commenting on a forum. But other times it just does it for no apparent reason (though I'm not sure if Internet is up when it happens). I know other users have experienced this on this model; I've read about it, but no solutions were offered.
Dell sent me a new drive, but it seems to me less like a hardware issue and more like--something is not compatible with another program. It's a TSST dvd-cd rw TSL632H ATA device--The device "is working properly" and plays things fine (not that I really use it). The PC is running Vista of course and there's a bunch of 'media' software on it (that isn't running when this happens) but other than that nothing out of the ordinary is installed.
Thanks in advance.
