This was obviously not a new machine if it has vista. You may have only used it for a few months but how old is it really and what do you know about it's history?
Bottom line... It appears there is a mechanical fault with the optic drive. replace it.

brand new hp, it was. do i need to replace the whole drive? or just the lens. or can i try just the cord which connects the moving lens to the drive. many thanks.
