it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.
might want to turn the volume down in advance:
its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.
if this doesn't solve the problem, you would probably have to disassemble the drive completely and get it working properly and put it back together, might want to get the help of a pro for that.
Last option is to replace the dvd drive completely, it will definitely solve the problem, You can buy such a drive from few places, few come to mind, for example, www.ebay.com, www.pchub.com and www.acerparts.com
Let me know how that goes,

I would always go with an extended warrenty dell pc's usually don't use the best hardware and tend to die in the 2-3 year range. The only reason I would say don't get it is if you are just going to go out and get a new if that one dies anyways.
