Hello, when I try to start a game on my laptop such as Age of Empires II, Civ 4 or any other cd-rom game the loading screen comes on and I can tell the cd-rom is running and then it just stops and the game never comes up, the problem just recently started and has never done this before...Any help that could be provided would be greatly appreciated.

Hello conkling86 and welcome to G2G!

Does your drive work at any other time?, such as installing software or burning files to CD.
