compaq armada E500 disk drive not reading discs and making clicking noise
the disk drive has stopped reading discs. When you try to use a disk, it speeds up, then goes ker-click! the drive slows down and starts repeatedly going ker-cick ker-click ker-click! and not reading the disk. I am certain the problem is in the drive itself, and not the software running it. sometimes while trying to read a disk, the entire machine freezes for a minute or so.
