Solved DVD Drive

Post by Sir $wat on Mon Feb 23, 2009 2:57 am

I'm havng a problem with my DVD Drive.

While playing a movie, the movie would freeze and a sound would be coming out from the drive. Then the sound would stop and the movie would continue, but it would happen over and over. The sound would last for a minute or so.

What could it be?

Try opening the PC and remove and put the cables back for the DVD rom , there would be 2 cables 1 for data that conncets it to the motherboard and the other is Power,and check( Open the PC only if u know how to open and close it again)
