Default cd-rom drive shuts off computer on open

i have an older laptop. just now, it has begun the wierdest thing. if a cd is dirty and it is trying to read it and i try to eject the cd, the computer will just shut off. it seems to work fine with a clean cd. it is a removeable cd-rom. could this be power-supply related or just in the cdrom itself causing this? thanks.

it could probaly be the psu, because it probaly takes to much power to open the drive again..lol

how old is your laptop.
lets wait for a second opinion
