New DVD won't run properly - continual loud whirring noise.
The instruction DVD, that came with a Bamix Titan Plus blender, won't run properly. Attempts to run it create constant and loud whirring noises from the drive. Other DVDs are fine. It ran successfully on the laptop in the shop where I purchased the product.

I had a very similar issue with my Toshiba Satellite X205 SLi1. I ended up having to replace the drive, as the motor apparently went out. You can get a new drive on eBay for a fair price, and directions on swapping it out should be very easy to find online. It's usually a very easy swap on a notebook, even for people who have never done it before. But I'm sorry, I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that your drive is a goner. It happens from time to time, especially if you use the drive a lot.
Hi Ian check to see that you have not left a CD disc in the CD rom /dvd drive--- sometimes they will cause this sort of noise on start up when the computer is looking for an operating system it may look in the cd drive first and scan the non operating system disc before booting from the hard drive
Fans are typically a little noisey. If it's exceptionally loud or continues for a long time it may indicate the fan is no providing the proper cooling. Purchase a laptop cooling pad to place under the laptop while your useing it and make sure nothing is interfering with the airflow around the unit.
most likely sounds like your hard drive. Mine did the same thing starting that loud whirring noise and overheating a lot. i took it into geek squad at best buy and it cost 199.99 for the diagnosis of the problem and the repair ( if you want just a diagnosis its 69.99) and then had to buy a hard drive ( i went for the 320 GB for 109.99) and they installed it for free same day in and out. took the whole process about 5 hours on a friday afternoon.
it sounds like bad hard drive to me, when you started hearing noises you should have been backing up stuff on to anther drive, anyways replace the drive and boot from your windows cd and life should be good again. after you have everything working you can try to add the hard drive to the secondary and see if you can recover any files.
