 Post subject: Dell XPS' DVD Drive has a bug !
New postPosted: Fri Jan 27, 2012 1:54 pm 

I don't know if anyone noted this bug. Just found it. Any solutions?

Well I assume Dell XPS' DVD Drive has a bug. Here are the steps to reproduce the bug.

>> Right Click on the desktop, click personalize.
>> Select Desktop Background
>> Scroll Up and the DVD Drive pops out.

Any solution?

Thanks !

Nope. Now I see the problem solved itself. Don't know how...maybe a bug?

If this is consistently reproducible, report the bug to Dell. Else, turn it off and on again!

I'll update BIOS in the first couple of weeks (thank goodness BIOS is dead/dying) but, after that, I want to know everything that's changed before I update it on hardware I rely on. To this point, I've never updated the BIOS on any of my computers outside the 30-day return policy. I don't find it inherently risky per se but it's just a sensitive process and difficult to roll back.

So, as a side note, be sure to read the entire changelog before updating. You may find "Updated to speed up fan 20% under heavy load" is not worth the update if you just use the PC to check email. Also, if there is no changelog, consider a different OEM next time.

With that said, I'm glad your laptop is working as expected now.
