Make sure your BIOS is current.  Try different DVDs to isolate if it is a defective DVD.  Get you a optical disc cleaner kit and run it through the machine to clean the optical pickup reader inside.  If your DVD drive is not even spinning, then your DVD drive is fu.k.d up, in which you will need IT to install a new one.
