Default CDRom ejects at powerup!

sponsored links

Hi there.

I have an old HP Pavilion, Win98SE. Secondary IDE slot came with an LG-8240B. I added a BTC CD-RW as slave. Changed original LG from CS to MA jumper, and like I mentioned BTC to SL.

One problem I was having with the LG unit is the stuck cd, and having to use the paper clip to eject. From reading this forum, I understood that there might be a problem with InCD (which loads at startup for me) but have not tried to remove at startup to see if it solves the stuck CD problem (am at work now, and problem PC is at home).

My other question is regarding cd eject at power on. As soon as I turn on the computer, the CD tray ejects (I believe with or without cd in tray).

Is this normal? Why does it happen? and is there a work around to keep the thing in?

Thank you.

To answer your questions, unload Incd so it does not start up with windows.

Start--> Run--> Msconfig and uncheck in start up programs.
