    wii loud noise problem help :'(

    hello everyone,i bought a wii off a kid for 100 dollars,the wii works perfectly fine except a very loud noise it make when i insert a disc,when its reading a disc it make a very loud and iritating noise,which stays all the way during gameplay...i asked him for a refund but he said no,and i got into a huge fight over it with him,and my brothers and mom and dad say i deserve it and im never getting another wii again,i feel very very guilty,and i feel SO stupid cuz i fell for the kid's tricks,and i feel like i trashed 100 dollars down the gutter.....i dont have money,at all,so i cant send it in for repairs at nintendo (they said they need 85 ) which is not an option,and i cant buy another wii,and i tried selling it online and everywhere but no luck,so im stuck with it and stuck with it forever....
    can someone please tell me what to do...please i beg you...
    and can someone tell me if the noise will affect my wii over time(nintendo says it will eventually stop reading discs..... :'( )

    AND MOST OF ALL I NEED A WAY TO MAKE THE NOISE STOP PLEASE...

    i saw tutorials of people on youtube with the same problem and solving it by opening the wii,but i dont have a triwing to open the wii and fix it and i think i striped a screw while trying to open it with a nife....please i think i have no other ooptions.....i just want to enjoy my wii just like anyother kid,guilt is killing me!

    PLEASE HELP!

    Next Time, be more aware of the person you are making a purchase from and make sure everything works.

    Hopefully this will teach you not to buy something without thoroughly testing it out.
    The person that sold this to you should be ashamed and don't be so hard on your self.
    The way I see it you were taking advantage of.
    Don't feel guilty,You are the Victim. Use this experience to learn from it ...Sadly,Not all people are Truthful.

    You can get a triwing screwdriver on ebay for $2.79 including shipping. I feel bad for ya placebooooo! See if your parents would be willing to spring $3 and get you that screwdriver!

    I believe uloader supports using an external USB DVD drive to launch games. So if you happen to have one, that might be a solution.

    You Need A Phillips screw Driver and a Triwing screw driver.

    The phillips is for the Black Screws,You should have one or your parents should.

    Triwing srew driver is for the Silver screws.This you will probably have to order.

    Here is a link.-->Triwing Screw Driver

    Please Make sure before Buying ,That the person is Reputable.
