Dvd-rom is not responding.


I am using Dell Inspiron 14 N4050 from 2012 but from last few months i am facing a problem. Whenever i enter a dvd/cd in the dvd rom it does not respond, even it does not spin, there is no sound and that little yellow light even turns off after 5 seconds. What should I do??? It is very urgent for me to setup windows 7.

It would be my pleasure if you reply soon.

Thank you.

Leave a data disk in the drive and run the diagnostics to see if the drive has failed and needs replaced. To run the diags on the system follow the information below.
