The yellow exclamation mark means that the driver for the DVD/CD-ROM is corrupted. You will need to find the drivers for your drive and re-install it. This should be easy enough to do: find the brand name of your drive and go to the website of the manufacturer, then locate their drivers page and find the specific driver for your product, then download and install the driver and restart your computer and the drive should work. Please rate if this works for you, Thanks!
i think you are going to have to boot into bios and where it shows the boot configuration look to see if there is a cdrom there if not change it so the computer will have the cd rom in there along with the harddrive and the a drive then save it and exit and reboot then the cd rom should be back into the device manager and also under my computer
