Will it read a CD that it has written? Or are we talking Audio CDs here (where there may be a protection issue)?

no it wont read or write cds

As most DVD-R drives have two lasers to read/write CDs/DVDs, it may be that there is a problem with the CD laser, in which case you may need a replacement.

its a new pc that has not had a lot of use

how can i check if the laser is broke

how new is new?

if its under waranty advise the company and they will test& confirm / replace as required. If you tamper with it you will void the waranty.
