Mine has been fine except about three or four months ago I had a DVD drive issue.
It stopped reading them. I thought I'd knocked the tray off balance and if I'd hold it in for a second (push the tray in after it was in), it would pull up the DVD material.
I should have asked because the thing went completely dead.
I couldn't believe it.
And I thought, fine, I'll go buy a drive.
So I call Office Depot. Yes. They have them. If I want an external drive.

So I'm calling all over and having no luck. And I did some texting to everybody figuring someone had to have had that problem -- Mike, Rebecca, someone.
But I get a call from C.I. who tells me I'll have the new drive tomorrow at noon.
And that is so sweet but I deliberately avoided going to her because (a) I knew she would have fixed everything and taken care of the cost without a second thought and (b) she already does that too many times. She really is the sweetest person you could ever know.
So I'm getting it tomorrow but I'm blogging about it tonight just in case you're having to play with your DVD player to get it to play on your laptop it probably means your drive is going out. And it's a pain in the ass trying to find a new
