Do check if your drive is broken!
defrag your harddisk, to speed it up a bit.
do state which cds and dvds your drive does not read, if theyre burnt one's, then your drive may not support them or they have not been finished properly.
get the freeware burnatonce tool, install andrun it, find out which cd/dvd types your drive supports via tools/device info, it'll tell ya!
now check the cd/dvds if they match or not.

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
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.
as for your computer hanging after it crashes
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this will schedule on restart then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps
