  1. Firstly try cleaning the lens with an air duster and a cloth, rub it VERY lightly.

    Failing that you most likely need a new drive on the system.
  2. Hi

    Try booting from a bootable CD or DVD to see if this is a hardware problem or a software (upper filter driver) problem

    (If you can boot from drive this is a software problem)

    (eg Windows operating system disk or some anti virus disks)

    Does the Device Manager show a DVD drive is present ?
    (if not either electronic fault in drive or data or power cable disconnected)
