It sounds like it could be a faulty laser with your CD-ROM drive, unfortanelty this means you will have to get the machine repaired. and the laser replaced.

My cd-rom wont work


The laser lens needs cleaning.
Radio Shack has a CD laser lens cleaner ($13).
It is an audio CD with a row of brushes on it.
Read and follow directions. It does not use chemicals and will not harm your CD drive if not done correctly.

My cd rom/dvd drive will not read any disc


Hi,
Check the cd-rom power is on or not. Then also if its not reading then Insert an DVD/CD cleaner disk and follow the steps. The cleaner disk is available in any of the computer shops. There may be some lens problem. After trying above steps if again same problem occurs then you need to replace the cd/dvd rom drive. Thank you.........

1. Make sure you use DVD's in good condition.
2. Reinstall the driver..( right click My Computer->properties->Hardware tab -> Device manager-> DVD rom-> right click Uninstall and again install using Dvd rom driver cd)
3. Clean The Drive lens using Dvd lens cleaner disc kit available in maket.
4. Removing DVD rom. opening it up manually and cleaning the lens with cotton( this tedious for novice users.. instead give it to servicing shop)

Doesnt read CD's


try cleaning your cd rom by the lens cleaner, just run/play this in order to clean the lens. prior from that, try to load some other cd's which you think it play then you need to clean your cd rom. just in case it won't play the cd 's which previously running the cd rom is suspected to be defective and needs to be changed. examone your cd is there some scratches? if there are but with deep scratches then your cd is might also be defective
