CD drives aren't expensive

You can replace a CD drive for about $20, so if yours isn't working, it's pretty easy to replace it on a desktop. If you want to do it yourself, you just remove the cover, remove 2-4 screws, unplug two cables (power and data), replace the drive, and reverse the process. Just be careful to keep those fingers off the other parts.

Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
