The symptoms indicate that there's no power getting to the drive, either because the power supply to it has failed somewhere on the laptop's circuit board, or the CD drive itself has failed & will therefore have to be replaced with a new one.

Either way it's not something you can fix in a couple of minutes.
If it's a circuit fault on the laptop's board, you'll need to have it looked at in a repair shop.

If it's the CD drive that's failed, you can fit a new one yourself.
