5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete 6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor 7) Reboot your computer 8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone
Right click on my computer icon then click on property then ->hardware ->device manager
then check there is any cd/ dvd drive showing in list. If you can see your cd /dvd driver then uninstall it. then restart computer. But if you cant seen then you need to refix your cd dvd rom. For that pull your cd drive from laptop but make sure there is 1 lock system near rom just press that lock and pull drive then refix it.
try this go to the device manager click on the DVD/CD rom drives and right click the options and then click uninstall Now right click on the DVD/CD rom drives and then click scan for hardware changes now open the cd tray and put and dvd.

Sounds like a failed optical drive as it was requiring more power to operate normal. Will it even open if you try the software method (right-click on the drive in My Computer and select Eject)? You could also try manually ejecting the tray if there is a manual eject hole you can insert a straightened paperclip into. You will most likely need to replace the optical drive.
the very first thing what u can try is that take the cd drive out of the computer and the put it back in and then try and play the cd or dvd and try with the dfferent cd's or dvd's and still if it doesnt play then what u can do is that delte the upper filter and the lower filter from registry tye regedit on the run box and then open the hkey_local_machine>system>current control set>control>class>4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318....double click on this and then on the right hand side u can see the upper filter and the lower filter just delete that and then restart the computer and it will work and still if it doesnt work then replace the cd/dvd rom
In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device. Restart Windows . . . did this work? If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)
I had similar problems with my HP computer and i found either uninstall it through device manager the reinstalling it through new hardware wizaed in control panel. Or if that doesnt work try opening your laptop up and unplugging/removing the drive itself and restarting the laptop then turn it off again and put the drive back in the computer should then register it as a new device and reinstall it. that second option worked for my drive so it should hopefully work for yours
