Hi,

I have a cd rom that opens up " a little" then close up right away.  Any ideas??

I Have taken out the CD inside.  (I am sure it is empty.)

Is this on the same computer as you're having the other problem? http:Q_20813011.html

Yeah, this is the same machine.  I took the cd rom apart, I found the tray was "leaned", so it hit the top of the CD ROM, that's why it opened half way anf closed itself.
