Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
It makes a funny noise wen't the ligth blink and them it stop
It sounds like the drive mechanism in the DVD drive has either broken or the drive gear is out of sync with the drive bar. Can you open the drive by inserting a paper-clip into the hole in front of the drive? If you can, look under the tray and you will see the drive bar, a piece of straight plastic with teeth on one side. This connects to the drive gear, which pushes the tray in and pulls it in when the button is pressed on the front of the drive.
Pull the tray in and out a few times and see if it re-engages. If it does not, you cannot open the drive to correct this so you will have to replace the drive.

The cd you out in it may be un-readable. If it does it on many cds, then your drive is bad.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
