Umm. Does it see the drive at all? Does it detect it on bootup?  If not, did ya recently add/change/remove any drives from the system? If so make sure you have the jumper settings correct, everything is connected and also make sure you have configured correctly in your bios if needed.

If it detects it on bootup and windows see the drive, are you sure your CD is good? Are you simply waiting for some sort of autorun to kick in? If so, is autorun disabled? Did you try accessing the drive through 'my computer'? Also does it sound like it is reading the CD for a long period of time?

Open up the computer and reseat the cables and powercord to the CD ROM.
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the drive.
Flash your BIOS with the latest version.
Double-click on My Computer and see if you can see the drive listed.
Try a couple CD's.


If you can't open any CD's, your drive may be bad. If you can open some of the CD's, the one you can't open may be bad.

CD ROMs are a dime a dozen.

May be your CD-ROM gone faulty (Head alone). So open the CD-Rom Drive and change the head (only if you are very strong in those skills) else just change your CD-ROM Drive, or ask your hardware service provider to check the same.
