    pabloguintana: did you try the fix I suggested first? If that doesn't work, you probably need to repair/reinstall windows. You stated that this is a lenovo, which I believe has a program in it, to burn your own restore disks. This is the procedure:

    ----WARNING this will delete all data on the computer, so confirm that you save your data first!!-----
    Burn those restore disks
    Copy or burn your data to a backup
    insert restore disk 1 and reboot
    choose boot menu during POST screen
    Boot from CD-ROM
    let the restore disk restore your system to defaults.

    This should resolve any registry/driver problems you had, and return the system to it's initial configuration. You will still have to install/remove programs, run all updates, and reset your settings. If the drive still doesn't work, then you probably have a faulty DVD-ROM.
