Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook
Backup whatever information you have and run the system recovery through the disks you received when you purchased the computer. If you can perform the recovery then you know the hardware is fine and that you were experiencing software corruption.

First thing I would do is go to My Computer or just Computer (under Vista) and see if drive exists. If it does show up it could be dirty and needs cleaning. If this doesn't help replace the drive. If it doesn't exist, Widows didn't see the drive at all and you need to pull it out and verify connections and possibly clean the connectors on DVD player. Plug it back in and Windows should say new drive found, if it doesn't I'd replace it.

The driver can be downloaded from HP's website under Drivers and Support. Unfourtunatly corrupt registry entries are really hard to work with. I do not know any other way then to reinstall the software and hope for the best.
