Hello gerry827

If you have already checked those things which is what I would have recommended first then it may be a case that it has just gone bad.

Does it light up at all ? Can you hear it trying to spin at all ? If the answer to either of those things are no then chances are the drive is bad or the cables from the CD-ROM to the motherboard maybe loose.

Post back if you have anymore questions or comments and I will be happy to assist you further. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
