Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

CD drive clicking sound

\015 I have a Dell studio. When I put a CD in the CD drive it makes this weird clicking sound like its hitting something. Then the laptop ejects the cd.\015

Answers :

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
