CD-Rom opening/closing constantly

    I just bought and installed a new Dynex cd-rom drive in a computer
    system that I'm building.

    When I boot up, the computer is constantly opening and closing the
    cd-rom until I insert a cd.

    I have the cd-rom set as the second boot device. The first is the hard
    drive.

    What could be causing this?

    After I place my Windows CD in the cd-rom it stops opening and closing.
    After the initial post, I get a line on the screen that reads something
    like: "Reading ATAP CD Rom:" or something like that.

    I can't enter a drive letter or anything else from the keyboard at this
    point to try and read what is on the cd-rom.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you tried installing a different CD rom drive to see if its the drive?
    If you have the same issue then its a problem with the Bios settings
