Okay I ran the diagnostic software that Dell supplied and nothing showed up. Oh another interesting bit of information. After I remove a disc from the drive, there is no stuttering. However, when I reset my laptop without a disc in the drive, the stuttering returns until I insert a disc back into the drive. So apparently I don't need to always have a disc in the drive to eliminate the stuttering. I only need to put it in and then take it out.

Sorry for the long delay. Holidays, along with having wisdom teeth yanked (ouch) have kept me swamped.

My final thoughts at this time are that your CD drive may be defective. Perhaps it is sending false signals to the board which is causing the computer make an attempt at processing something that does not exist. I know that's not good news because this is a laptop --- replacing the drive could be messy and costly. Sadly I have not found a more satisfactory solution.

Sorry :)

That's alright, I hope pulling out your wisdom teeth wasn't too painful. Anyhow, if it's too costly then I'm just going to wait until a bit later when I purchase a new laptop. For now, my temporarily solution works okay with having a disc in the disc drive.
