View Full Version : G75VW DVD Drive Randomly Seeks

08-15-2012, 12:35 AM
I recently purchased a g75vw ns1 to replace my trusty g73. After reading the forums I was a little concerned with my purchase, however once I got over the ssd installation troubles I was able to install a fresh copy of win7 and all the latest drivers. So far so good.

Although there has been something that's bothering me for quite a bit. The dvd drive would boot up during random times, (when i open WMP, Itunes, Steam or even word sometimes) and it makes quite a loud mechanical sound. It only lasts a second or so, but it's still quite annoying. I would just like to know if anyone else have the same problems or if it's an issue with my drive.

yes, my g55 made sound like that, too. as i seldom (actually, never) use dvd drive nowadays, i removed it and put in another SSD. now it runs silently hehe
