Eject not working for CD-ROM Drive.
Posted on 2007-10-19
Have recently noticed that our computer has a problem with using the eject button on the CD-ROM drive.
We have a Dell PC with Windows XP, with two logins (one for me and one for my wife). When my wife is logged in, the eject button doesn't work at all. Only when we're either logged in as me, or in the log-on screen can we get the CD-ROM drive to respond.
What I've done currently:
1) Checked Device Manager to see whether anything is listed as being out of order (It says there's nothing wrong with it).
2) And obviously, when I first noticed it, I checked on my login to see whether I could get the drive to work, and lo and behold, it did.
So it's rather a mystery to us why it's not working. I was thinking perhaps some sort of a virus, but who knows?
So I thought I'd post to the good folks of Experts Exchange to see if anyone else had a better idea.
Any help would be appreciated.
