Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hi, I have an Advent laptop, and today when i turned it on it no longer recognised that there is a CD/DVD drive, so i can't play music, DVDs, games... This is the second time this happened. The first time, the computer was only a couple of weeks old and I had not put much on, so i just wiped the OS (Vista) and started again. I don't want to have to do that again, and this looks like it might keep happening periodically. Any ideas why, what i can do about it now and how i can stop it from happeni
