You have not provided nearly enough information to know what your problem even is. What are your system specs? Do you mean the Hard Drive? Can you get into Bios (the black screen with lots of words when you start your computer)? When and how did this happen? Is it a new system or old?

You need to give us anything you think could help.

Is it just this one CD that doesn't work, and is it an original or copy?

Can you see any of the CD files in Windows Explorer?

Can the CD be read in another drive or PC?

This must be something to do with the hard drive as if i uninstall windows and reinstall it works so if i find the game on the hard drive it might fix it
