If this is a vista machine go to your startup menu click that and right click my computer and select the option properties. once in the system properties select the tab Hardware. then click device manager. it will populate a list of all your installed hardware as well as those that are not installed correctly. if you see any exclamations let me know, if not go to dvd/cd-rom option and click the + sign and see if your device is there. if not there may be a good chance that the drive has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Go to start--run--type devmgmt.msc it will take you to device manager.Hopefully you can see your Cd/DVD rom in there. So right click on it and press uninstall. Dont get scared you will get it again itself in next reboot. \015\012IF you dont see ... PC Laptops
