My PC has been returned to me from repair shop [I had a logon problem] and I have found several things wrong with my PC. A new dl dvd burner is not showing up [tech people said it was probably dead] and there is a high pitched squeal that is so loud I cant listen to music or watch videos. In fact the noise is constant ANYTIME windows makes a sound its there screeching!!! I am so frustrated!!!

One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
or...
2. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
Restart computer.
or...
3. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
Restart computer.
or...
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.
