YEs, typically that sound means the Hard Drive crashed. Although you may be able to still use it, its not recomended. Hopefully you backed up you important files because most likely they are un-recoverable. Does the laptop boot at all? If so, do you get a hard drive not found error? any errors?

You can easily replace a hard drive on a laptop. usually you just remove a small screw and pull the old hard drive out and replace with a new one.

Go to any computer store or if you can, order one online as it may be cheaper.

Order a new one, get one with more hard drive space if you want, especially if you have alot of files.

Make sure its the right type of Hard drive as well. I.E. SATA or IDE. If you dont know, then take your old hard drive with you to a computer store with knowledgable techs who can get you the right one. Typicall you can get an 80 gig hard drive for under $60 depending if its a SATA or IDE and what speed it is.

Keep the old one untill you know the new one is the right one in case you have to compare it again with another one.

You will have to re-install your operating system ( Windows XP, Vista, ETC. )

then once all that is done, you will have to go through the task of re-installing all your software, printers and files.

Hope you kept that re-install disk that came with the laptop, that has your hardware drivers and Operating system on it.

Dont be affraid to look at the specifications of the laptop in the owners manual or to take that with you when you go looking for a new hard drive.

Being knowledgable about what your looking for helps to keep sales people from selling you more than what your looking for.

Tigerdirect.com and Newegg.com are two placethat have the item your looking for and usually at a good price.

Good luck.

    Oh, sorry, by drive i thought you meant hard drive.

    You can probably find a new one on ebay or some other website. those laptop drives are sensitive to shock and can go out easily. Theres only two hair strands of copper wire that hold the laser eye between two tiny magnets, any hard shock could snap it and bye bye CD Drive.



    The sound you are hearing from the CD drive is the laser and spinner going up , not reading a disk, and dropping back down.



    It could be that a gear or the motor movement has gone out. Sorry i cant be any more help

edit the registry and delete the upper and lower filter.

In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

Right click the upper filter and delete it. Look for lower filter and delete it also. (if only one is available then its fine).

close registry editor and restart the computer.

try your dvd drive again.


***Note*** make sure to follow the instructions properly. do not delete any file, just the lower and upper filter or else system will not load to windows anymore.

How many times and how loud is it. Make sure those no debris in the drive. One way is to spray air into the drive to loosen and remove any debris in it. A few squeeze of a can of compress air should do the job. If not will need to order a new drive and have tech support install it for you. Pricing I'm not sure of how much. Better yet, take it to any small business tech shop. Taking it to any Corporate Chain store would be major costly and might not even get it back right.
