You haven't said who manufactured your computer, but if you go to their support site you should be able to download the latest drivers and updated applications that were bundled with your computer if what you need is not on your driver disc.

Click on "Computer" .... does the CD/DVD drive show up? If so, click to open and see if it runs now.

Insert the driver disc and open Windows Explorer (Windows + E keyboard combo) then double-click the drive with your driver disc in it.
