Go the manufacturers website and look for downloads and drivers. You will be looking for a driver for the disc player that came on your moms computer. You will need her model name and number. You should be able to find the driver and download it to her desktop and then install it.

The power light comes on and the harddrive doesnt seem to spin up and the indicator just flashes

i think your HDD doesn't work any more, this can be a problem in the HDD, i think the Disk stuck in his cage, (sorry, but me English is not that good ;). maybe you can fix it by open it in a room without sunlights, UV can be fatal for hardware. look carefully if it stucks, look at the little "ARM" that reads the disk by moving over it, it can be that this one press to hard on the disk and that the disk don't spin anymore. otherwise there can be a lot more problems why it is stuck, hope it will work out for you, good luck.

I have a Zd8000 hp laptop and the cd rom doesnt read or write but if i insert a dvd it work reads and writes the disk, how do i go about fixing this issue, mark

That is a lens problem, CDRW and DVDRW use different focus , and the lens is working only on DVD , try using a lens cleaner disk.
That probably will not work, in that case replace the DVDRW that is not an expensive part.

DVD Drive not working properly

Try cleaning the drive with a cleaning disc (purchasbale at most electronics stores like Best Buy or Circuit City). If that doesn't get it up and running, it'll need to be replaced.
