I suspect that you are running Vista on your computer. If you have service pack 2 installed, then this is the reason for the missing drivers. When Microsoft issued SP2, they improved it worse. To make things worse, they will not correct the problem, instead, they issued Windows 7. Uninstalling the Windows drivers might help, but did not work for me. At start up, Windows should find the DVD drive as a new device, and ask for permission to look for and install the drivers. Click on no, and Windows will look for alternate drivers, from the firmware.

Your dvd lens needs to be clean from dust. Clean the lens of the drive by using a cd/dvd lens cleaner. You can buy it at any computer stores. Reconnect the drive from your computer.

DVD and CD drives have something called firmware built-in, that tells the computer how to manage the device. There is no need usually to find a seperate driver.
You can go to and enter the model number (from the bottom label on the laptop). This will give you access to download every piece of software and drivers that shipped with the laptop from the factory. However, it's my opinion from what you've told, that the DVD/CD drive is mostly likely broken and needs replacement.
Please reply if I can help you more with this.
