so, everytime i turn on my powerbook, after about 10 minutes a loud vibration along with noise comes from what i am sure is the dvd drive, and crashes my finder (computer). there is no disk in the drive and I have tried using it with a disk in the drive, but the same thing happens.

my warranty is well over, i just need it to work and don't need the dvd drive.
so, my question:

is it possible to disable or remove the drive from the computer and it still function?

if so how?

any help much appreciated of course :)
