Toshiba satellite A205 - cd/dvd drive doesn't work

\015 I am trying to load a new program on my laptop and it sound like it is running the cd when I put it in but nothing happens as far as loading the program. I tried a plain cd to listen to to see if it works and that dont work. Any idea what is wrong with my cd/dvd drive?\015

Hi there.

\015\012The CD/DVD drive uses Class Filter Drivers. These have probably been currupted or are missing. All you should need to do, is re-install the Chipset Drivers (Intel).
