SOURCE: no sound/audio , dvd rom driv stuck.

1. Downloading the latest drivers pretty much is always the first advice that will be given for computer problems. If device manage is reporting device drivers are not installed then there is your answer. I did have a quick search and can't find your particular computer.

2. Have you tried going into 'My Computer' right clicking the drive and selecting eject? Does the drive work at all, is there a disk in there?

Windows XP and Vista and 7 all contain "built-in" support for reading CD and DVD drives.

If your computer cannot detect your hardware, replace that "dead" CD/DVD drive.

I bought a used hitachi dvd rom gd 7500 that did not come with a software. where can I find a driver?

You do not need a special driver. DVD drives have a standardized interface and will work with generic drivers that come with your operating system.

You could try restoring the system to an earlier date with system restore. If your good registry has been saved this may solve your problem.
