  1. Its probably a virus
  2. To me it sounds like that the CD tray is on the way out. New one needed maybe.
  3. if you are on a laptop, it is usually really easy to do that as the stupid laptop manufs have made a choice of really cheap trigger mech for the drive...

    and you can't easily swap one out in most cases...
  4. It`s a PC Desktop.

    As I was about to reinstall Windows XP on my desktop and the tray keeps jumping out, i am wondering if i could reinstall windows via a memory stik.wil it take the stik by booting up during the installation?

    u need usb flash drive and a usb bootable mobo / bios to do it

    and what is going on with these responses clever_noob? A virus is highly unlikely to cause something like this, if it's system slow down or malicious uses of your computer then maybe, and you can definitely install xp with a flash drive...
