Re: CD Tray opens By Itself!

Does it do this in safe mode or the BIOS as well?

I have seen some malware do this behaviour.

Are you sure that's not an automatic cup holder? Those old Dell's came standard with those, I think.

Re: CD Tray opens By Itself!

The article refers to some code that can be added to an application to invoke this behaviour. You need to reveiw the applications you have installed and running on your system to determine which one is resulting in the behaviour. Once you have determined which one it is, you can disable it and the behaviour will no longer continue.
