    Hi, if still you disc drive will not read any disc at all, and you done the upper and lower filters possibly uninstalled and reinstalled the dvd driver from the machine then tried cleaning the disc or maybe tyour disc drive which is unlikely to be done, you can try reinstalling windows to find out if the drive will read the Windows cd for the reinstallation if not then there is something wrong with your DVD drive.

Scratches on the disc will do that or a dirty cd player
try cleaning it with a cd cleaning kit

Driver's do not factor in on whether a CD/DVD can be seen or not. It is most likely a media issue. Put the Windows 7 CD into another machine and see if that machine can read it.

one idea is to check and make sure they are all cds and some not dvd or blue ray. and verify that your rom drive is cd/dvd,also try to load the cd and open my computer and see if it even acknowledges that there is a disk in it.if so just double click te icon for the rom drive and run the cd that way.

Cds will not play after Red Ring of Death


If theirs two lights means its overheating and you need to cool it down if its 4 its many things and if the disc drive doesn't read anything and by the sound of it its been played a lot its probably the disc drive could have gotten shot so first of does the disc driver even spin the disc if so then is the laser that probably went to hell and then you'll probably have to replace the disc drive if you do make sure its the same brand as your current one for example if its a hitachi then make sure you replace it with a hitachi disc drive.
