Something's doesn't add up with that post-ie. WHY can't you replace the DVD drive? That is one thing(besides RAM upgrades) that you can actually do yourself on a laptop. You might have to contact the Manufacturer of your laptop, as laptop parts can be a little harder to find. But it is definitely something that can be done(and DVD drives are usually less than $50 too, so it is not too expensive).
Daemon tools can cause problems with games-especially those which use Secrcrom(spelling?) like IV and EFLC does.
Another option IF you do not want to replace the DVD drive is to get the LEGAL download version from Steam, that way you have NO disc to worry about. Don't see why you don't though, as the CD/DVD drive is something you use daily, so why not just get a new one and avoid the hastle of not having one?

Actually this is not true, for 10 yrs I have only used a drive to install prgms, games and so on.. Games that require a cd to be added in a drive i get a no cd thing so I don't have to use the CD.. after I install things on my computer I barely even use a drive.. My last pc I had the drive broke 3 yrs before it died.. I didn't need to fix it everything I needed was on the pc already...
This predated steam downloadable... Last time i touched steam before GTA was Half Life 2, so since then I had no idea they had downloadable games.....
Come to think about it I just built this pc i got now in feb, I have yet to use the cd player in it..
