    ^^ You must check via the BIOS setting for DVD drive. Also try to run sfc /scannow command and see whether it works. Report me if still have issues.

    @ RANBIR, What error you are getting?

    ^^ Make sure the hardware is still compatible and working. Else, visit nearest computer shop to verify, if there is not any issue with hardware configuration.
