Hey guys, I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium on an HP Pavillion dv6810us laptop, and I've recently begun having problems with my DVD drive. When I push the button to eject my DVD drive, nothing happens. Also, I have a DVD in there right now and it doesn't recognize it. The light on the DVD drive also does not ever light up. I booted my laptop up in Knoppix from a USB drive and it has the same problem.
But here's the strange part: when I first turn on my computer, the light on the DVD drive comes on, and if I push the button it will open. I can then put in a CD/DVD and hear it whirring and clicking.
I think the fact that it works before Windows loads means that it's some sort of software problem. Does anybody have any idea what could be wrong?
