I'm using an old desktop with an LG CD-ROM. Some days ago, the CD-ROM started to pop in and out without control. It is still functional only that you need to push it in place so that it does not pop out while playing a CD. What could be the reason behind and what can I do about it?

Hi User,

This is likely to be caused by loose connection in the CD drive or the open button is struck on the drive. In that case you need take the CD drive to a technician for repair. First turn off the computer and plug off the power cable. Open the case by undoing the screw on the side. Remove the power cable and the data cable to the CD Drive. Undo any screws that attach the CD drive and take the CD drive out carefully.

Another cause could be viruses. Do a thorough scan of your system using an anti virus with up to date definitions. If you fail to find anything then do a boot time scan if you anti virus has that option. These can detect stealthy viruses.

Using an ancient desktop with a LG CD ROM doesn't work a few days ago and asking for help to resolve the difficulty.Your LG CD ROM has been crashed and couldn't fully work.You should disassemble your CD ROM and check properly and assemble the CD ROM and insert a CD in the CD ROM.Open 'my computer' and observe what the problem beyond this.It is  too complex to remark on the problem certainly because this is quiet unobservable.Also I request you that if you cannot the problem only you should wait furthermore but you must have to change that for a new one.

Hello Dudanbic,

The CD drive might have been tampered with. There is a cable that connects the DVD drive to the motherboard, maybe it is hanging or has gotten out of the right position hence making the DVD drive not to fit well. Hence you will have to open the inside of the system unit and check the status of the cable and fix it in case it is not is connected to the motherboard.

Also check the jumpers and the place where the cable is connected to the DVD drive, ensure that it is not hanging. Or it could a problem with the DVD drive itself which may need than you replace it.

Hope this helps.
