I have had a recurring problem on my Windows 7 Home, 64 bit laptop. Whenever I eject a CD, the HDD spins and the system is unresponsive for as long as 20 minutes. If I don't want to wait, I have to do a hard reset to recover.
There are no events in the system log, Resource Monitor shows nothing unusual, just System, svchost running. As far as I can tell, there is no I/O occurring, just a spinning disk and unresponsive system.
The bios and all the drivers are up to date as is the OS.
It's an Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7640S ATA Drive
I have searched until my fingers bled trying to figure this one out.
Any ideas, troubleshooting advice?
