You cant disconnect your C drive with the eject hardware button. Whats happening with the machine?

its behaving oddly sorry its the disc drive not the C

Its the CDROM then, is it an external drive? what operating system are you using? and how odd is odd?

Give as much info as you can and it will get sorted.

"okay the oddness ive just found out was something under one of the keys"..please explain.

If you double click the "my computer" icon on the desktop is the CDROM there?

Reeboot and go to control panel, then admin tools and click event viewer. Click system and report the top errors with a red X at the side.
