    It is normal for open CD drives to close on startup. If it's opening, either your eject button is stuck or the switch telling that the door is closed works bad. I guess it thinks that the door is stuck and it tries to open/close or simethign like this.

    Well, that button requires you to open your CD drive so if you don't think you're able to do this, I guess it's better to get a new one unless the cost of that drive is pretty high.
