Computer does not recognize the CD/DVD drive

For these last days, my computer does not recognize the CD/DVD drive.  I have tried everything - publishers of registry, check the physical connections inside the computer, the system restore and install Fix - It programs.  However, the computer does not recognize this drive.  I also wonder if it is a hardware problem.  The light on the drive is a constant in green, and does not have the Open button.  And when I use the bent-paper-clip-in-the-little-hole and can open the drive, it will not read the disc.  Please advise...

I fixed my problem with the BIOS operating system & not recognizing not not my DVD player to reinvest the solder on the motherboard.  You can find instructions on how to do it here: http://www.computerrepairtips.net/how-to-reflow-a-laptop-motherboard/

There was a little crazy with my video drivers when I started first, but everything works after resetting the BIOS by default.

    Hello mike salinas.

    1. you have any third-party burning software installed on your computer?

    2. have you checked if the external CD drive works on another computer?

    I suggest that you check if your internal CD-ROM drive is detected in the BIOS.

    Usually, you must press a key (for example, F2, F12, DEL, ESC) or a key combination whenever you turn on your computer, but before I get to the BIOS to start Windows. Check to see if there is the CD/DVD drive in the BIOS.

    You can see the article for more information about the BIOS:

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/BIOS-frequently-asked-questions

    Regarding the external CD/DVD drive, I suggest you see if it works on another computer.

    Thank you
