1) Try and have around 6-7GB of free space in your C: partition( I am assuming that you have installed windows in this partition.)
2)Run disk defragment from Accesories->System Tools
3) Run Free Space utility (I dont remember the name right now) from the same place.
4) Try and minimise the background processes.
5) Search for virus using any anti-virus and spyware, malware and every other x-ware using spybot.

and finally if the above points yield nothing then possibly you are running a windows which was installed 1-2 years back. If so, then reinstall it man, windows cannot run for this long (w/o reinstallation) until you are extra careful with it.

Just Open your and clean the circuit board ie pcb, lens etc of your drive.

That should solve your prob
