Small pieces of plastic can lodge in the gears. Either take apart yourself and clean it out or get a new one (recommended). Since the speed of a drive is quite fast, an electronic component could also have been damaged. Replace it. CD drives are 20 bucks or less.

I have a compaq presario, mv540, operating system is Window Mil
One day when I was playing a game, Reading Blaster, with my 4 yr old son I heard a shattering sound and the computer froze, I opened the cd drive and the cd literally shattered into hundreds of pieces and the cd rom has not worked ever since.
So I use the CD burner to run cd's. Now the cd drive will not even open. There is nothing in the drive but I push the button and nothing happens.
