    I can hear the spinning noise of my cdrom through my speakers. It just started, so how do I fix it?

    latest drivers..... strange if its only just started though :confused: Pop the box and check the connections.

    If you have 2 drives swap leads and see if you can narrow to the soundcard or CDRom

    try going to your sound panel, then under the volume controls for all the different types (digital audio, master...etc) go to the one labeled line in and set that to mute...this helped solve the problem for me before because somehow the cards line in was picking up system static
