My cd rom is unable to read cds and there is error in cd-rom driver....


If the Cd rom driver has an error, you can check and know if it has an error. Click on start, Control Panel, System, for windows xp, click on Hardware and then device manager, try and look to identify if your cd rom driver has a question mark on it or a yellow mark, if so, this means that the driver is corrupted, you need to uninstall it, right click on it and choose uninstall, after restart your computer.
for windows 7 and vista click on start, control panel, system and device manager, do the rest as explained earlier.

Problem associated to the booting sequence, the 'my computer window ' is divided into four fragmentations .at the floppy and dvd. thedvd is not highlighted therefore imposible to access thecd player


You mean the CDROM or DVDROM is not selectable as a booting option in the BIOS, right? There must be something wrong with the device, the driver or your BIOS. Is your hard disk still bootable? If so, you can boot in hard disk and see whether the DVD-ROM is still there and check the device manager of your Control Panel to see if any errors about it. If it is not working there, you can check whether all the cable connections are connected well and the jumper settings are fine. There could only be one master device on a single ribbon of the IDE interface. So if you have a hard disk and your DVD-ROM connected to the same ribbon and the jumper settings of both are set to master, you will need to adjust one of those settings to slave or cable selection. Then you can use the AutoDetect feature of your BIOS to detect the CD-ROM if available. If those are not working, you can uninstall and reinstall the driver of your DVD-ROM if available when you boot in hard disk and open device manager for hardware change scan or directly right click on the CD-ROM icon in device manager and select update driver then select the right driver downloaded from the manufacturer's web site. You can also plug that DVD-ROM to another computer and see whether it is working there to detect mechanic issues of it. If everything is working on the other computer about this DVD-ROM and it is not working on yours, you can also try to flash your BIOS and/or replace the ribbon and see if it works before you replace your motherboard.

Is your computer a laptop or desktop? If yours is a laptop you have to check from the manufacturer site if the CD/DVD rom need a patch for the drive.
