Specs: Windows 10
When I start the computer, at random days the CD/DVD drive start running continuously, and sometimes it stops after some minutes, sometimes i have to open it to stop the annoying noise.
Any suggestions?

mmm - Possiblly there is a bit of dust or similar jammed in the mechanism? Perhaps try blowing it out with a can of compressed air - NOT a blast from a vacuum cleaner or similar.

If it does it on startup try moving its position in the boot order from bios setup. If it's doing it when windows is running possibly some software is trying to access it.
