In looking for a solution for this, it seems mostly the way to solve this may require replacing the drive. However, some tests to preform before you go that far are 1) power off the computer and remove the ribbon cable from the drive (leave the power connection on), then start up the computer. does this stop it? If no, then the drive is bad.
2) If yes, reinstall the ribbon cable (with the computer off) and start up the computer. Press the BIOS enter key (F1, I believe) at the first splash screen
3) If the drive door stays in the correct position, try opening and then closing with the button. If after a period of time it still remains the way it should, report back.
