It was like a joke. Yet, it was technically a free "student edition" of Windows: the one that doesn't have regedit, nor notepad, nor GUI, nor anything else because you just can't download the damn thing.

If not, try throwing some pistachio shells into the DVD drive slot. You might hear some crunching sounds from time to time, but it makes your music collection sound like a DJ is having fun with it!

You can optionally put strips of bacon over your DVDs and it will stop the jittering and stuttering.

the REAL secret to overclock one's DVD drive and make it work a lot better is to always put TWO disks into it. This greatly reduces rotational velocidensity, allowing the drive work much, much better.

Funny story. My best friend ruined one of my games that way. We were going to install Tomb Raider: Legends on his PC because mine could barely run it. He put the DVD in and it started making terrible noise. I asked him if he removed the DVD that was already there, which he apparently did not. I do not recommend putting two DVDs in the same drive as the upper DVD will get rekt. The scratches were shaped circular, like a flower, so that was cool.

I accidentally had two disks in at the same time at least three times back in the day.
On every occasion, both disks survived without sustaining any noticeable damage

You just got lucky. Or maybe I just got unlucky. At least the game was cheap and he got me a new one.

Alternatively, you can go back to the superior Windows 7. You'll get support until 2020.

No thanks, I prefer my games to run natively on my gaming PC.

Cpt_Putin, have you tried using the Buzzy Technique of taking a 15lb mallet and flailing it around in the general direction of your laptop until either the problem is solved or your friends/parents/relatives/neighbours/forum-mates/friendly-local-hobos/colleagues buy you a new one?

one surefire way to fix it all is to gather some 100kg of Neptunium and form it into a ball.
