I have a compaq presario v2000. Problem is the CD/DVD drive doesnt seem to want to work. I put in a cd, but nothing happens, the light on the cd drive goes on like it trying to read but then the light goes off after a while and thats the end of story. I go to the device manager and the driver is listed. I go to my computer and I see the cd/dvd drive. So why is it not playing
