Disc tray keep randomly spinning

Specs: Windows 8
Ever since I got a new laptop, my disc tray just randomly goes "click click" and then spins for a split second. Then nothing.

I have no idea how often it does this, but probably once every 2-5 mins at least, maybe more or less I don't keep track, but it basically happens often.

Any ideas? Any way of stopping it?

I think it's a Samsung 355V, if there is such a thing. It's a Samsung and I found "355V" pasted on the corner of one of the labels underneath it...

you can do a hard drive diagnostics test to make sure the hard drive isn't going bad.

I have Windows 8 by the way, which is probably why it didn't work.
