DVD/CD-ROM Drive won't open

I have a Satellite that came with Vista.


The DVD/CD-ROM drive won't open now.  If I want it to open I have to push the button right after the computer starts.  I can't get it to open when the computer's been on for longer than ten minutes.  I have to restart the computer to get it to open.  But if I actually manage to get the CD in, the drive will open for me to take the disc out at any other time.


I did not have this problem when the computer was new, but it's almost five years old now.
