Under no circumstances should you go anywhere near a laser! I am a cisco qulaified technician, do not go there. Buy a new cd.

That's if you haven't tried deleting cd & dvd drivers, and tried to reload them from floppy for cd,then reboot, then load cd for dvd and reboot, or download them from net and install/run/save to desktop, (cd 1st & dvd 2nd) depending on version promt options. hth
