Google AUTOFIX and hope that helps.

If you installed any DVD/CD EMULATOR I find those interfere with this.

maybe your using virtual emulation as it also affects cdroms. try uninstalling if you have any and see if its solves the problem. Happy

It could be something as simple as needing the current drivers for your CD/DVD ROM, you'll need to know if your running with an AMD or Intel CPU to find the current drivers for your laptop.

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?
