Hello my friend please try to insert 2 new CD. and then try to observe the sound if it is still sounds like the weird. Then if you notice that the 2 new CD you insert produce same sound as your old one then i recommend that if you can find computer technician in your place to verify if your DVD/CD Rom is defective or not cause as of now if the 2 new cd inserted produces same sound as your old cd inserted then DVD/CD Rom has something to do its either defective or has a serious problem that needs assistance.

Thank you

My dell studio 1737 keeps making clicking sound and wont eject tried my computer, tried funtion key not doing anything please help


It sounds like your CD/DVD rom is stuck or damaged. If the drive is empty, this means that something is wrong with the drive itself.

Often, you can use a paperclip that has been bent straight to open this. insert the paper clip into the tiny hole on the door pannel of your CD/DVD drive and most of the time it should pop right open.

if it does not pop open right away, I have seen situations where the disc becomes lodged inside the case and will not allow the door to open at all. This may require you to take your laptop to a repair facility and explain the situation to them.

If you are feeling very confident, you can try to remove the CD rom drive from your laptop, remove the outer casing and see if you can dislodge the disc that way.

I have a dell studio 17 laptop. There does not


You can go to my computer and then you will see the dvd drive showing. It will probably show the title of the cd. Usually it is the D drive. Right click it and click eject. That should eject it for you.

My laptop will not accept disc makes clicking noise then ejects it


The clicking noise is the drive head banging up against the stops. It is doing this because it has lost its home position. You should try a few other cd's or dvds. You may notice it will read a cd but not a dvd. If it clicks on both then unfortunetly it needs replacement. If it read cd but not dvd's then it may work for a while longer but will need replacement sooner or later.

This is common on laptop drives. If you have warrenty they should fix it. If you don;t this is something you can fix yourself. The drive is held in by one small phillips screw. Unscrew that and the drive slides out. Slide the new one in and put the screw back in and you are done and fixed.

A replacement drive should be available from several sources. Prices should be from $45 to $100. Check with Dell as well and compare the price and shipping costs.

If you do a search on google and bing using 'Dell Studio 17 replacement parts' you should find several possible sources. Here is one to start you out.

You can find these on ebay as well. But you may take a bit of a chance that you are getting a good one. Ebay can be the cheapest but if it doesn;t work then it isn;t much of a savings.

Can't insert CD into Dell Studio 17 - ejects!


There are small plastic drive gears that respond to the drivebelt. These gears are very fragile and may have come out of syncronization.

Ejecting cd dell studio 17


Supposing that the Studio 15 / 17 has a slot loading drive:

You can either press the eject button above the keyboard (the touch sensitive one)

or

Go to 'Computer' in Vista and right click the CD/DVD drive. Then click 'Eject'.

This should work.
