My CD/DVD-Rom Broken?

It was working fine until yesterday. Now every audio CD or DVD I try to play is choppy.
How do you get it fixed?

hmm..you sure it is the cd drive and not something on your comp? do you have a spare cd drive around that you can try inorder to test the system out? i have seem programs cause the same issue so without a little testing there really isn't much to tell you.

It's the laptop drive (Compaq Presario), I don't know how to remove it.

XP Home SP2. Had it for almost a year.

All processes off, still the same. I tried various scenarios - restart, shutdown-start, different discs...It's one of those drives where you have to push it in to load (no button), so maybe it's physically worn?

Oh, and I even tried uninstalling Media Player 11, and rolled back to MP 10. No difference. Same with other player programs.

Update: now media stored on the drive gets choppy every now and then (enough so to stand out). Maybe it's something deep?

Runs fine. The only changes I've made in the past few weeks is installing Window Washer and Evidence Eliminator. You think they might have fucked something up?
Also, my laptop tends to stall after, say, 10 hours running before I need to restart.

try reinstalling your audio drivers, you should be able to get them from HPs website

Tried it, still no good. Maybe it's time to go to the techs.

good luck with that...

tech support sucks ass, I should know - im at work right now.

try taking the drive out, uninstalling it and then reinstalling it.

if that doesnt work, take it out of your tower (but keep it connected) and see if its even spinning.

Well, it's in a laptop, so I'm not sure how you disconnect it.
