Default Making wierd noise

Im pretty sure its my CD drive that making a wierd vibrating noise once in awile... if I push even gently on my case where the drive is it stops the noise and when i let go the noise starts again. It stops on its own after awile.

My old computer did that also, and it never really caused a problem. I wouldn't personally worry about it. But I would definately get a second opinion.

Have you tried just tightening the screws? If its really annoying there are some rubber grommets or these: http://www.directron.com/noisestrips.html

If you can steady the drive and stop the noise, it's probably not internal. In which case, entirely fixable.
