Laser's probably gone. You can buy replacement DVD units from any good computer shop.

The eMachines T4480 is an old model now, about four years old so if its still the original drive, it'll be up to usual eMachines standards, most eMachines parts I've seen last no more than about three or four years at the most.

If its a physical problem with the drive, its far cheaper and quicker to replace it. There's nothing inside the units that are user serviceable.
