W700 Keeps losing or dropping CD Drive

2009-01-27, 16:57 PM

Hi

 

Cannot fathom out what is happening here, but every so often the machine removes and redetects the optical drive. This normally happens if you're just working or even listening to music, for a minute or so the screen goes grey - there's lots of very fast disc access, then it all comes back to life.

 

With the drive removed it's fine - but if left out for a couple of hours then reinserted it is not detected without a reboot.

 

Any ideas please?

Weird. My optical drive won't work at all, so count your lucky stars. I'd wager that it's not a hardware problem, but have no idea otherwise.
