My slimline dvd drive on my laptop makes strange noises and doesn't read disks smoothly. It will read disks eventually after lots of 'unusual whirring' I know the noises it makes when it normally reads a disk. It also doesn't load programs smoothly. I know there is obviously something wrong with it but are there any solutions other than replacing it? Maybe changing the driver?
I can't reinstall the driver as I don't have a driver to reinstall it with afterwords.
