I expect you mean CD Drive, not CD Driver?

If it keeps disappearing in Windows, disconnect your PC from the power supply socket first, then open the system case and check that the power and data cables which connect to the back of the CD drive are properly pushed in to the connectors.

If the problem persists, your CD drive may need replacing.

The driver for the CD drive is already built in to Windows, and Windows installs the driver automatically, so there is no driver for you to install anyway.

Hello, Phil22

I have another question, could you please help me? When I turn on the power of my computer, and Windows start. suddenly the screen colour turns black, although the computer power on. And screen autodetection (auto examination) box of colors appear. Then, there is no way to restart the Windows except turning the power off and then restarting the computer again by turning the power on. This problem repeats itself frequently until finally I can use my computer well, after lots of trials. it is very stressful for me, in the same time. Is this a defect in the screen card definition which needs re-definition of the screen card of the computer or what?

I' m sorry for my bad English. I'm trying to improve my English.

Best regards

Hi MonaRmzi, your English is okay.

First try updating the driver for your graphics adapter. You can download it from your PC manufacturer's website.


If the graphics adapter is a removable card (not motherboard-integrated), download the driver from that card maker's website.

Hi phil22,

Thank you for your reply. I will try and then I will tell you about the result.

What about reinstalling Windows XP, can it resolve the problem too?
