SOURCE: I have lost all icons on desktop, cd rom not

Sounds like your hard drive failed. Memory is cheap, so it's not an expensive fix and easy to do yourself with minimal skills. Once you open the case, there should be 4 screws holding the HDD in place, one fat ribbon type cable and one connector with 3 or 4 wires (power). You can just pop a new HDD in and reconnect and use your software disks to reload the operating system. Most computer repair shops can get the data off of your old drive and load it onto your new one.
By the way, you wouldn't happen to be a Limewire user would you? There seems to be a new trend connecting HDD failure and Limewire use. This is not yet proven but being investigated. It is likely not Limewire, but malware attached to downloaded media.

SOURCE: my computer is unable to read any cd. Moreover

Hi,

Check if you can find the CD drive in Device manager. If not verify if the drive is properly connected to the cable. If its still not working, try replacing the drive with a new one

Remove cdrom drive


Removing the cd rom drive will not make your computer start up. Or are you saying the cd rom drive will not start up? CD rom drives are very sensitive on the disks they read. Most of them have a problem reading some of the discs that someone created on another computer. Make sure you're trying to read store bought discs.
Removing the cdrom drive is very simple. Turn the laptop over and you will normally see a screw with the icon of a circular cd on it. remove that screw then you can grab the cd rom unit by the door and pull it outl

Drive will not read cd rom, reads dvd and audio


CD rom drive is dead!

Time to go out and buy a new one. Rough cost is anywhere for a DVD BURNER is $25 - $40.

DVD burner are now the mainstream drives replacing CD roms.
But if you can still get a replacement CD rom from a computer in town should be cheaper than a DVD burner.

DVD burner can read and write DVD's and CD's.

Connection Problems


If you have other Optical Drive in your computer like a CDwriter then installed it where that LG 52x CDROM drive. Observe if the same problem occur after 2 or 3 hours. Try connecting the CDROM drive to the IDE ports (Secondary IDE port) like setting its jumper to Master. Ensure that the connection to its power supply is firm. Change the setting of your POWER OPTIONS which is under the CONTROL PANEL and change the setting for TURN-OFF HARD DISK to NEVER.
