How do I make my DVD drive region free (remove region codes/country codes/zone locks)?
Use DVD43(freeware) or AnyDVD or DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also "patch" your DVD drives firmware, you find patched DVD drives firmwares here (freeware but it may be a bit tricky and "dangerous").

SOURCE: for my dvd rom region
Region Code is concidered when you play any DVD movie directly from the Drive.
Like you insert any Video DVD in the Drive and right click on it and play directly where the Region Code comes into Picture.
You will be able to change the video code 4 times to use Video DVDs of different regions. However, the fifth time, what ever the DVD you use, the Drive will be locked to that region.
We need to check whether your Notebook is able to detected the DVD Drive or not.
Follow the steps listed below to check it :
Insert any DVD which you used earlier like a Data Disk or Video Disk in the DVD Drive of the Notebook and close the tray.
Now, go to My Computer and right click on the DVD Drive of the Notebook and select Open or Explore.
If you are able to see the content of the DVD / CD, the Notebook is able to detect DVDs.
I recommend you to copy the video files in the DVD into the Hard Drive and play them since this will reduce the noise generated by the DVD Drive while playing video from DVD and also its life time will be increased.
You need to copy the Video_ts folder which contains the video files in Video DVDs.
Hope this helps.
