Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Hi I am experiencing the same problem with my ACER Aspire 5783G laptop. The first time i reformatted to Windows 7 from Vista, the DVD drive was slowing down and also lagging quite a bite. Therefore i resided back with Vista. i thought this was a one off thing so after a couple of months when my vista was working perfetly with the laptop, i formatted with win 7 and now it does not read at all.

Please help with this problem :S
thankyou, much appreciated
