    it sounds as though you need a new drive

    I think there is something wrong with the drive too. But because a new CD-ROM drive costs only about $15-$20 or even less, it's hardly worth fretting over it. A CD-RW or even a combo drive (DVD/CD-RW) is not much more so if you only have a CD-ROM now, upgrading is worth considering.

    When you reboot (while the computer is booting up, from the moment you restart until windows desktop comes up) what happens if you put a disk in the drive then?
    If its not going popping out then, then your drive is fine, and something is messed up in Windows.
