Hello and welcome Hasnain sorry you had to wait so long but in a nutshell my friend just replace the optical drive - very simple and not expensive at all - depending on what you buy ie a Blu ray will cost more than a normal red laser drive.

Having said first up you could try running a cleaning disk in that drive it could just be a dirty lens as you say but don't try doing it by hand as you may knock the gear out of alignment. Oh and check the cables are all snugly in place on the drive and the board.
