Re: CD/DVD roms not reading discs & other probs
Well a couple of options. For the virus if it is bad you could boot to a Linux live CD and do some anti virus / adware things from there. As for the CD ROMs first double check to ensure that it truely is the drives. Get some different CD's from a different manf. and try those out. Also make sure it can read +R or -R, some older drives can only read/write one or the other.
It could also be that bus is bad on the motherboard.
