Check all the connections, try pulling them out and reconnecting them again.

I'm just looking at the specs in your signature, and that computer is really dated, and some of the parts, namely the CD drive, may be on their last leg.

I wouldn't be too concerned, Cd drives cost like 10 bucks tops, so replacing it shouldn't be a problem.
