Thats sounds like a case of a belt slipping or the drive motor reaching the end of its life.
My advice is too bite the bullet untill it has become totally faulty otherwise you may be replacing parts prematurely to their complete failure.
Alternatively you can replace the dvd-rom for the console. Good luck.

You also should change the thermal paste. If you want to play games, please choose normal PC. I think you are asking too much from your laptop.

One red light and slow loading

The clean disk and the "one red light" are 2 different things. You are batteling heat my friend. Unfortunately, your freezing is not a good sign if your "one red light" displays "E74" on the bottom of the screen. There are a gazillioin different methods of doing an xclamp replacement. Thats what you need.

As far as the disk read, you probably just need a cleaning. since you'll already be inside that ******, open up your dvd drive (4-6 phillips screws) and give it a good alcohol shalackin' too!

NOTE: There is probably someone on your local craigslist or used game/videop store that can repair it for you. By the time you buy all of the hardware and materials to do it "right", you might as well just pay someone that will do it for you. (don't pay more than $40.00 and look into getting a new one)

Cd tray on my 360 wont stay shut

either you will need it repaired or u can do it the cheap way and after the disc tray is shut put some tape over it and see if it will read it still. If not it will need to be repaired. It will only cost about $35 or free if you are still under warranty.

My laptop freezes when i try to install games

First do a spyware check (it never hurts). I would run the one from it's free and works well.

If your system is clean then shut down any virus checkers or spyware blocking applications and try it.

If you need and more help, tell us if you running XP or Vista.
