Cannot get CD-ROM to work,to come up on screen.

Ok with that you need to insert the disc and then go into the my computer section of your computer and then in the CD rom drive you should see the disc and you will click on it to start the process. However if that does not work then your CD rom drive is defective and you need to purchase a new one.

The cd drive aint reading blank disc

You must have the burner program (roxio or nero) identify the CD/DVD RW Drive. If the burner program didn't come with the drive at the time of purchase go to roxio or nero site and look for updates for your particular drive. If you don't have that info...look in divice manager under CD/DVD-Rom Drives and it will tell you.
Failing that...look for updates of "Firmware" at the manufacturer of your drive...
Good luck...hope this helps

I hate my computer!

No, this doesn't cost unless you sign up for Premium Assistance.
  1. Remove the disc from the drive.
  2. Look at the top of the disc (or game box). Verify whether it is a CDROM or DVD-ROM.
  3. If it is a DVD-ROM, verify the drive on your computer that you are inserting the disc into is capable of reading DVD-ROMs.
  4. Go to My Computer and verify which drive letter is the drive you'll be inserting the disc into.
  5. Insert the disc.
  6. Wait 20 seconds. If the disc doesn't automatically start up, go to step 7.
  7. Open My Computer and double click the drive containing the disc.
  8. If My Computer now shows the disc contents, find the most likely ".exe" file and run it.

My Computer Wont Read DvD's or CDs!

Is the CD drive display in my computer? yes

then clean up your CD/DVD rom for there is dust in it, specially on the lazer lens that let the rom read the CD/DVD.

If no, then; Fix some cable connection towards your CD/DVD rom for it was lessen.

If not fix the problem verify the disc if it is readble by your Rom. Please try another disc in your Rom.
