Q: I have a laptop that makes grinding noise when dvd is played, then after about 10 minutes dvd pauses & will
not restart. Is this software?? or hardware??? device

    It sounds like a hardware issue with the lens of the dvd player. it may be out of alignment. My suggestion is if it is still under warranty have that part replaced. Also make sure that the dvd player is not scratching your discs.
