I'm back and have another issue with my Win 10 PC.
Basically, for around 2 weeks now my disk drive (DVD ROM) has not stopped clicking, the LED on the drive also keeps flashing, it keeps trying to read a disk, but there is none in there! weird thing is last night i disabled the disk drive under "Device Manager" And it stopped, no more clicking no more flashing my media player booted straight away and the computer seemed alot lot faster! (This also seems to be affecting speed and general funtion) But today, I turned the pc back on and to my suprise this issue has come back even though the device is disabled! I dont mind completely disabling the drive because its actually never worked on this PC anyway which is why i use an external disk drive and rewriter. What im confused about is this; Why on earth is the DVD drive still attempting to read/write/boot when its been disabled?
I know for a fact it is this causing me problems not even just with windows media player but with the PC in general, and as mentioned earlier the improvement when i eventually got this thing to stop trying to read was immense! any advice on what i could do? i've even considered disconnecting the drive but am a newbie so anything that can be done via the settings would be preferable.
Good to be back guys youve been ever so helpful in the past and i hope you can help me with this!!
