Check the the connection cables to the CD/DVD drive inside the computer (make sure they are seated). Enter the BIOS using the DEL or F1 key at startup and make sure the CD/DVD drive is detected. If not, try replacing ribbon or sata cable going to drive.

It means your Dvd-Drive can't read the contents of the Cd/Dvd media, try the media on another computer and check if it can be read or not, if it is so, then your option is to copy the files from the cd to the other Pc and save it to your flash drive, so that you can install it later, or if you can, replace the dvd/cd rom drive with another spare. Good luck.

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything


If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

DVD/CD ROM does not open


There should be a small hole on the front panel of the DVD-ROM. Take a paper clip and insert it into the hole and push to open the tray. If the DVD-ROM tray continues to malfunction, you'll need to replace it. DVD-ROMS run anywhere from $25.00 to $75.00.
