DVD ROM drive not detected

I just reinstalled the OS and software on my laptop as I had sold it to a friend out of state. When he got the laptop he said the ROM drive was not working. When you look in the My Computer, Device Manager or BIOS there is no ROM drive that shows. Before I sent it out it worked as I was installing software from disks. I look in the system logs and it has a DVD ROM error device cable unplugged, but not sure how a cable inside a laptop comes unplugged. I am not sure if the ROM is just shot or if there is something I am missing. I have taken the computer apart before all the way down to the board so if I need to replace it I can.

Hi, my dvd rom image vanished from the display , pls guide me about the driver for dvd rom for amd turion 64 mobile , hp compaq 6115, thanks

You may need a new driver(software) for your dvd-rom drive to get it to communicate with your motherboard......(The driver for your dvd-rom drive is found on the company's website under the title "Drivers and Support")....

If that does not work or seems like to much for you.... then you need to reinstall the os system on your pc and that should do the work for sure.....

Please leave a testimony and vote for this solution!
Feel free to ask more questions......

Cant get on.keeps saying operating system not found.ihave windows xp.can you tell me what to do and why its doing that?Thanks

Do you have the original start up disc? If so use it. If not there is generally a button to use at start up that will get you to a screen where you can restore your computer to a previous date. The button is usually F10 or F11 or one of the f keys. Also make sure that you don't have a disk in one of the drives. Take everything out and try starting it up. Good luck.

Display Dvd Rom

Hello my friend, please try to reboot your computer then goto CMOS and check if the DVD Rom that you have is detected by your system. If it does not detect then you can manually detect a device using CMOS function. Also try to check if the connectivity of your DVD Rom is not diabled otherwise enable it to detect your device. If all the above steps you followed then the result is still the same then please find a computer technician in your place then let him open and fix the problem.

If you need more assistance my friend please reply to this post.

DVD/CD-ROM drive missing

Problem with missing dvd-drive with Acer 5101 solved.
Problem was that depending on boot, even bios couldn?t detect dvd-drive. I
opened my laptop and found out that there were one small screw that wasn?t
connected to anywhere. I opened the screw that locks dvd-drive in to 2.5? slot. In the back of the
dvd-drive is L- shaped peace of metal. One of it?s screws were already dropped
and 2 that were left were loose. I tightened those screws, but drive back and
got my laptop working fine.

Please feel free to post this solution to other forums as

Internal dvd does not work, bought external, can't initiate it.

~You dont need a driver for an external dvd, just plug and the OS will install it automatically.

On the product page you only has firmware.

Once again, just plug it and turn it on and it shall be detected
