Having problems with your Dell Studio 17 Laptop ?

When i put a cd in it tries to spin but makes scraping noises and then ejects the disk


Answers :

This is usually a sign that the cd drive has failed..

The only other things it could be are, something has lodged itself inside the cd tray.

Or the lens has become extremely dirty.

You could try running a lens cleaning disk through the drive, after blowing it out with a can of compressed air, and it may help..

but more then likely its just a bad disk.
