It's not a software problem

Cheaper to replace it's not worth your time to fix it

The 'Power Calibration Error' determins one of the following:

1) The CD-RW's lens isn't clean

2) There is a conflict with the media used (CD-R/RW)

There is a known solution to this problem which works in most cases:

1) Start > Run > 'services.msc'

2) Disable 'IMAPI CD BURNING'
