DELL/Windows XP CD-RW Drive

I have Dell dimension 4400 and my cd-rw drive suddenly stopped working properly after trying to install a Sims game. Everytime I put in any type of cd it keeps ejecting it after a few seconds and my computer is not finding any problems with the drive itself. I REALLY NEED SOME HELP ASAP!!

Hi and Welcome!

please try getting a [I]bootable [/I]disc (I prefer a Live Linux disc, but a Windows install disc should work also) and try to load your computer from that disc. You may have to change the boot priority or invoke a boot menu. Please check the manual of your computer for details.
