Open a paper clip and see if you can find a tiny hole in the front of the cd drive. Push the sraightened out paper clip into the hole and the drive should open without power on the computer. The hole on my dvd plyer is just above the switch which opens and closes the dvd drive. If the paper clip is too big you may have to go to a pc shop and buy a pin which comes with most new dvd players. If the owner of the shop is a nice person they may give you a pin and explain more.

Microsoft updates may not have the driver you are looking when it is searching for drivers. When you are in the device manager make a quick note to the name of the device and go to http://www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html
and see if you can match the device to the driver for your pc. If you are able to find the correct driver and install it and still receive the same results then the drive itself may have a problem.
