  1. hi everyone.

    i have a pc that sometimes when switched on displays a constant light on the dvd drive, when this happens the pc wont boot

    however if i reset the cmos the pc springs into life and works perfectly.

    Sounds like the unit is failing...i remember the old floppy drives used to have a constant light on if they were plugged in the wrong way,,

    or maybe the pc thinks the drive is the only bootable device as it cant see the HDD...

    change the unit over and see if it continues, if it does check the HDD for faults
