CD Rom Noisy at Startup


J

hi, i am trying to stop my cd rom from spinning like crazy when i boot
up my computer. It is loud and annoying. Once the system finishes
loading windows, the cd rom will be quiet.

i have tried disabling auto run and ending certain services in msconfig.

i have win xp, and i noticed this problem (the loud cd rom) when i had
to reinstall the operating system.

any suggestions on how to stop the cd rom from spinning at max speed
during startup would be appreciated. Specifically, if someone knows if
a certain program is causing this or if this is a windows service...

I'm not sure if there is a cure to the noisy cd rom at start up but you
could try to remove the disc before you shut down or buy a plextor cd rom
there quiet at start-up

Is it spinning up without a CD in it?

Hi

Try the bios, you might have the bios set to boot from CD-ROM. Try changing
this to the C drive or A drive if you prefer and see if this works.
