Is your CD Drive connected to the motherboard? Replace the CD Drive with another one if you think your CD-ROM Drive is causing you problems. Try reading a CD by booting a Windows CD outside Windows. If it works, then there's something wrong with your operating system, like a driver is corrupted.

Does your CD drive not read the one from which you want to install a program or does it not read any CD ? A music CD, for example ?
