Re: cd driver is no more responding
From your desktop, right click on ''my computer'' and go to propeties, on the tab go to hardware then device manager, you can click on the drive from the list and reinstall the driver from there.
if the driver is in stalled and looks ok you could uninstall the drive and use the scan for hardware changes icon to reinstall the drive.
after that it might be a problem with the drive itself, youll notice a small hole on the front of the drive, if you straighen a paper clip out and place it in that hole it will open your drive so you can get your disk out. be carefull when doing this.

From what I understand, it seems that you have a bad optical drive. Further, as you refer to it as a CD drive rather than a DVD drive, more than likely it has seen its long lifetime of service and is ready for retirement anyway. Go out and get a DVD drive to replace it for about $15 to $20 and that will probably resolve your issue.
You might try installing the drivers found on the the HP site located here. If this does not work and it does not read discs then try cleaning it with a CD cleaning CD available at an office supply store. Just insert it like a regular CD and it cleans the laser lens inside the CD-ROM. If that still does not work then you may have to replace the drive.
The laser sensor from the reading head inside your unit has failed and no longer sees the disk. this is unfixable, the unit is dead. Luckily a new unit is very cheap, less than $25, and it can be bought at every computer shop or section inside a bigger shop.
If the door on your CD/DVD drive will not open when you push the eject button (on the front of the drive), Click on Start, My Computer, and Right Click on your CD/DVD drive. Then Click on Eject. If the door still refuses to open, you can insert a paper clip into the small hole on the faceplate of the drive and push it in until the door opens. If the door continues to refuse to open in the normal manner, you will have to replace the drive,

Select a cd rom device,then add another boot up disc,then see if it opens.Will it take a cd rom better than a floppy? If so use the boot up disc,rather than an older and possibley more damaging floppy.
The front of the
CD Driver you can see a very small hole…use a safety pin and open it then
insert the pin in that hole and push it in that will force the door on the CD
to open …Let me know if that work for you and please do not forget to rate my
service so I can keep providing this service to everyone and improve on
Go to Control panel, Next click on the hardware tab. Find your CD drive listed up close to the top. Highlight the CD drive and click on uninstall. Reboot the system and the system will automatically re-install the drivers. See if that will work.
