Hi Avee,
You may need to re-install the CD drivers. The below link will guide you to the CD drivers for the T40:

One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
or...
2. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
Restart computer.
or...
3. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
Restart computer.
or...
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.

This is what I did.

1.Click Start, then Run, then enter REGEDIT to open the Registry Editor
2.Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class entry
3.Under the Class entry, double click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
4.In the right-hand pane, click ONCE to select the UpperFilters entry
5.Make sure the UpperFilters entry is highlighted, press Delete, then Yes.
6.In the right-hand pane, click ONCE to select the LowerFilters entry
7.Make sure the LowerFilters entry is highlighted, press Delete, then Yes.
8.Close the Registry Editor by clicking File, Exit.


Restart your computer, and the CDROM drive should now show up on the My Computer screen. You may need to re-install your CDROM software if it's not working properly.

Just a FYI....
Anytime you mess in the registry you take the chance of messing something up and causing a total system failure.

We always recommend to back up the registry before doing anything.
Erunt in my signature below is a good backup.
