  1. Unless you have some sort of special optical drive (and you very likely don't), Windows 7 loads all of the default drivers necessary to install optical drives.

    To check the status of the drivers, go into Control Panel/Device Manager. Indicators will show up for hardware devices that have problems (like dorked drivers).

    If you CD ROM isn't working, it may not be connected properly, dirty, or defective. How old is this optical drive? What make/model is it?
  2. CD rom plug & play ! no specific driver like other Hardware, that is same monitor, HDD
    sure in Bios your CDROOM enabled., also check Cable & Power connetion ? the sound like is Damage !

    I assume you are having trouble with the drive? What are the symptoms, exactly?
