    Hi, i know this might be simply that the drive is dead, but the drive on this computer is continualy making noises as if it is trying to read a CD, even though it is empty, Not only is this annoying, but it seems to be slowing the computer down, unless we leave the drive open. Any ideas? Ta, Sam

    You're probably right that the drive has failed. Best test would be to try it in another computer.
