    hi.. I'm wondering if anyone can help me with my laptop, as i know nothing about them.
    The problem is my Cd Dvd rom drive seems to be broke i insert a Dvd disk and it goes to load up then starts making like a loud whirring grinding noise sometimes it worked but i think its completely stopped now, can anyone point me in the right direction of if or how this can be fixed... thank-you..
