Could be several things. The cd in your "CD-ROM" im assuming thats what it is may be a cd-rw or a cd-r that hasn't had its session closed. Put a normal music CD, that means non-illegal, in your drive and try playing that. Same goes for a game CD. If that doesnt work your drive is screwed up. Call the manufaturer and have them fix it, hopefully you have a warranty.
