Usually you cannot repair CD-ROM's its cheaper to just buy a new one. Should run about $20 USD in a used computer store. Or you can go online to www.newegg.com and order and new one. Very simple to install.

Steps:
Shutdown computer
Unplug all cables
Remove side panel (2 screws)
Unscrew CDROM
Disconnect 40pin data cable and power cable
Replace with new one
Reconnect all cables
Power on PC

Most CDROM/DVD are driverless now days meaning you will not have to go looking for additional software to download

DVD RW is missing


Contact the manufacturer first, it sounds like they may have incorrectly not installed the DVD burner and should replace it immediately.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D
