    It is quite unlikely that any virus has disabled your CD drive.
    If it is really not seen in the BIOS, you may well check whether the power and data cable connections are OK.
    Also just see your windows device manager in control panel to see whether CD drive is disabled. If so enable it.

    Really sounds like your CDROM is fried. Can you get another one?

    THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CDROM I HAVE 2 UNITS ONE IS A DVD BURNER I HAVE REMOVED THEM AND HAVE INSTALLED THEM IN ANOTHER COMPUTER JUST TO CHECK IF THEY WORK
    BUT I THINK THE BIOS DRIVERS HAVE BEEN ERASED
