My dvd rom not detected because it is corruped or missing device driver so can i do plz tell

There is no need for drivers for your drive, since Windows already have the necesary drivers for the cd/dvd drives. Either your drive is not working properly or the settings at the bios are wrong. In order to provide more helpfull tips to check out, clarify me these:
1.What kind of connection does your drive has? IDE or SATA? For IDE you will notice a long connector (with 2 series of 20 pins) at the back of the drive near the power connector. For SATA there is no long connector but a small one with just 7 pins.
This photo might help you:
2.Does your computer had another cd/dvd drive before? What kind of connection (IDE or SATA) did this drive had?

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Cd-rom drive

Hey Dale,

It sounds like there is an issue with the laser in the CD-ROM drive because it spins for 10 seconds trying to read the disk and stops because it cannot. If you try and put another disk in and it does this then the CD-ROM is bad. You can find replacements online for reasonable prices. You can also go to most electronic stores to purchase a replacement. They usually run around $30 dollars or less.

Thanks - Tech101

CD-ROM icon missing on screen


Can you see it in your device manager? if you can't then its a physical problem which means you will need to double check your physical connections between the cdrom and your motherboard as well as the power connections.
Another way to double check is go to your bios and see if the biois detects your cdrom. If it doesnt then i think you cdrom is dead.

Cd rom

As you say it is old. The Cd drive laser is probably burned out- but if you can get hold of a CD driver cleaner disk it may help As for the display- nothing to be done there I feel, you could be in an endless loop of paying for inefectual parts- far better to start afresh
