Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Noisy DVD/CD drive

\015 My DVD/CD drive makes a loud vibrating noise when it's reading or writing. I don't recall ever having this issue on older computers. Is this normal? Does anyone else have this issue?\015

Answers :

Try tightening the screws mounting the drive to the computer's chassis. To do this you will have to open both sides of the computer by taking of the side-panels. This is typically done by unscrewing the panels from the back of the computer's casing. If there are no screws give us the name, make, and model of your computer and we'll find some manuals on how to open it up.

If tightening the screws doesn't do it, it's typical wear-and-tear. After all, if you were constantly shook around wouldn't you eventually get a headache
