I have an iBook that when I put the CD in it Humms so loud I can't think. Any idea on how to solve this?

Thanks ahead of time!

uh, oh.

well, does it do that with ALL CD's you insert?

any problems ejecting?

you may need to disassemble the unit, clean it, then reassemble it.

the worst case, of course, would be a return to Apple for replacement.

Yes it hums violently on all the CD's. The ibook is my buddy's who had me come over to troubleshoot some stuff for him. He said that it's been like that since he got it.....it's his first computer :P....

What is entailed in dissasembling the unit and cleaning? I am fairly tech savvy and with some guidance I am sure I could do my best to fix the prob if it was fixable.
