I own a 6 month old Toshiba Satellite A100 notebook and the operating system no longer recognises the CD/DVD drive. It doesn't register as one of the pre-installed hardware. I need to rectify this problem asap. Please help?

this free cleaner called ccleaner is really good and gets your system cleaned up, free of any spyware and free updates.
But the memory problem is the fact that your notebook may only recognise 2 of the same size memory sticks, so take out the old memory and try the new in on it's own, if no boot at all then the memory is not compatable with your system.
You can go to the crucial web site and see what the tool finds as to the type of memory you can fit
Just check if the region code has not been locked.
If you cannot play DVD's at all, first clean the lens, then install a good DVD player like cyberlink etc and then try.
If the issue is related to Data DVD's as well, change the media that you are using, eg change the media type to Samsung, Sony and check.
Lemme know if it works.
