My brothers laptop's dvd/cd burner combo drive has been making a very loud noise lately. You can hear it pretty much anywhere in the house its so loud. This happens when he has a cd in the drive. It is working fine though.
Well I'm thinking something might of happened so it became loose. We recently went on a trip to Canada and it was in a makeshift laptop carrying case and got thrown around a bit.
I'm pretty good with the insides of desktop computers. I put in a DVD drive in my own computer (along with many other things). I've never even opened a laptop up before though.
So does anyone have an suggestions as to what I should do. I thought I should take it out (please tell me how!), and tighten some screws. The laptop is a Compaq Presario v5000. I can give more info about it if needed.
