Why do I have a strange whirring noise occasionally from my laptop. A sort of buzzing sound. Goes off after about 30 secs but comes back in a few minutes.


Could be either the cooling fan or even your hard drive. I have had hard drives make this noise when they are just about to crash.

DVD/CD-ROM DRIVE in my PC can't work.


Step by Step:
1) Check your drivers (start>control panel> (Small Item View)> Device Manager
2) Install any missing, or uninstall any unregocnised drivers
3) Check your BIOS for options about turning on and off USB.
4) Test DVD/CD ROM drive in another unit, if it works, it may be the connectors on your motherboard, or even just needed to be reseated. Thankfully re-seating DVD roms on laptops is usually child's play. A few seconds with a screw-driver and you're all set.

My cd/dvd drive in laptop wont read anything just makes a rumblin


In order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone

3. At the Dell logo screen press the f12 slowly 5 times
4. Select boot from cd/dvd drive
5. Press any key to boot from cd .... message appears press enter

DVD/CD Rom no longer reads cd or dvd - restore drive


Here's a Fixya:

How old is the notebook? There is 3 possibilities to get it fixed:

1. It might be the CD you're trying. Did you try another CD? or DVD to see if it does the same?
-If yes you might have the read/write head dirty and all you have to do is buy a lens cleaner follow the instructions and clean the drive. This is worth a try.
- If you are referring to CD's that you are BURNING with the same drive and the drive would not read it. Then most probably you did not get a brand of CD's / DVD's which are suitable for your drive. Check your drive's laptops manual to see the reccomended media.

2. Upon doing this check if you installed any software which might affect the drive. Such programs include. ASPI dirvers Daemon Tools copiers such as Nero and Alcohol 120% or others such as Clone CD. If so uninstall the offending program and reboot to see what happens. Sometimes even games might cause the problem.

3. Is the PC / Laptop old? As i did not have any details. And if it made any "funny noises" most probably its a hardware problem and it compromises reliability so if you tried all the above. You best bet is to check for a replacement drive. They do not cost much.

Hope that this Fixya helped you in any way.

Totally Wrecked.


sorry man, i know how it feels.
your ps3's disk drive is dirty. try using a lens cleaner CD.
if that does not work, clean all of the dust using compressed air. AND since its not under warranty, go ahead and open it up. use the compressed air to blow allover the ps3's inside. How to open PS3.
If that does not work, your disk drive is bad. either find a replacement Drive online or sell it on eBay.
