CD Rom no longer auto runs

  babybell 16:09 03 Jan 2005

Im having problems with the CD rom, if i insert a CD it wont automatically run, it usually takes about 9 or 10 attempts at me pushing the eject button before it finally does, is this just a simple hardware problem or could it be something to do with software or drivers. Running Windows 98se with standard cd rom

try this link.

if you are having problems ejecting the CD as well, then it could very well be a hardware problem.

I checked and auto run was ticked. I right click on my cd rom icon and clicked auto run and the cd rom just kept clunking away for ages and everything froze, i imagine this must mean its a hardware problem

i would tend to agree. although someone else may have an idea. this is a stab in the dark, but are there any viruses/worms etc that may cause this anyone?

otherwise just click here and get a new one....
