Someone in my family used my computer and took the floppy disk with them before they closed the program out. Now every 30 minutes or so my floppy dirve makes this noise that sounds like it's trying to read a disk. How do I stop this noise?

If this happens it's because a program is trying to read the disk. Shut down any open programs and make sure Windows Explorer isn't set to A: and you should be all set.
Scan for viruses too..
