Check it is "seen" in the bios first, a failed device will often disappear from the bios Then, in My Computer, see if you can see the DVD Icon Now If you can see it, go to Control panel, device manager and see if there is a yellow exclaimation mark next to the device, indicating a problem. If there is, the device has possibly failed, but you can try to remove the retaining screw that holds it into the laptop remove the DVD and re-insert it. This works most times IF the device still has life left in it
IF you cannot see the DVD in My Computer, repost and I'll talk you through the next stage, which involves resetting the filters in the registry
How old is your battery? When you use your laptop, do you run it on just the battery or do you use your a/c adapter and battery? If you're going to use your laptop for an extended period of time, it's recommended to remove the battery and run off of a/c power alone. This helps to extend the life of your battery. Over time, using both a/c and battery will cause your battery to charge/discharge, which dramatically shortens the life of the battery.
You may simply have a dead battery.
Another alternative is that you have a bad power unit, which is what the a/c adapter plugs into on your laptop. My guess is that you most likely have a dead battery.
