I'm having a problem with my recently purchased Studio 1535 laptop....
Vista Home Premium (SP 1) (32-bit)
Intel Core2Duo T5750 (2GHz)
The problem is that every now and then I hear the optical drive make an eject sound, even though there is no disc in it. It doesn't seem to happen when a disc is inside ...I can play CD albums without them ejecting mid play.
I don't think the behaviour is a serious problem (the noise that the drive makes sounds more or less like a normal eject mechanism). However, it's quite annoying and disconcerting, and I don't think it's 'normal' because we have another Studio 1535 (exactly the same specs) that doesn't behave like this.
If anyone can help me rectify this behaviour I'd be extremely thankful!
Yes, i got just the same problem on my Inspiron 1525.
It makes sense that the OS accesses the DVD-drive when booting, logging on, etc., but it also checks the drive randomly about every 15 mins. About every second time, it gets ejected, too.
Thanks to that I couldn't burn a single DVD till now, VERY annoying
Had anyone found a solution to this issue? My fiance just received this laptop, and loves everything about it....
....except for this constant 'attempts' to eject.
Thanks in advance,
Count me in also. I get the ghostly ejects throughout the day but it's really bad when I resume from hibernate. Then I get 6-8 eject attempts in a row, really annoying...
I have a Studio 15 (the new one with the touch sensitive buttons)
I have heard that disabling the Flash Cache Module in the BIOS fixes this issue. Please try it and post back how it goes.
Ok, I just sat through 7 eject attempts in a row. It doesn't look like the fix had any effect.
Just to clarify my exact issue, the eject light comes on during the Dell splash screen after resume and stays on until Vista loads, the eject attempts come around the time the vista login screen displays, they continue until the light goes out.
