Hi, I have a sony vaio laptop with Vista Home Premium and the DVD RW drive isn't reading discs. I can write or burn a cd but not read one. Also my laptop has been making a crickling, cracking sound and then a clicking sound. Then after it wil shut down or a error screen comes up or blue screen sometimes. Any help would be appreciated. THANK YOU.
