Try to check the bois if it is capable on booting in USB. you can load your copy of windows in the USB and boot it there...or try to look for another laptop that has the same CDROM connector.

Hi there:
If you know how to boot the computer into bios look for the boot section and check to see if the cd rom is there if not change the settings to show a cd rom and than save and reboot but i think you may have damaged the cd rom when you forced it open these are pretty delicate devices , force should never be used .
best regards mike

A DVD-ROM problem

Find a technician who can do it for you - or if you are conversant with computers you get an eternal dvd rom Drive and use it. Have you tried the floppy drive if your computer has any? or the flash disk?

please try one these options.

Missing or corrupt windows\system32\config\system file in XP

Go in the BIOS, in the boot sequence make your DVD player as the 1st number device to boot from, restart your machine and do follow the article (you should know the admin password to go into the system drive):
Note: If you are too overwhelmed then your Product recovery DVD will give you your original OS and all settings back.
Good luck!
