    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You may have damaged your cd-rom`s laser or lense.

    Personally, I`d take out the drive and open it up, to see if I could see any damage and try to fix it if possible. Failing that, just get a new cd-rom/rw drive. They are only cheap to replace.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
