Some windows files deleted in error can i get them back?


Most of it can be recovered with a recovery disk. You should have it when you bought the computer. Or can ask a friend with the same model.
Put the recovery disk in you CD/DVD drive. Restart computer press F2, or delete either to get in CMOS setup. Set the Boot sequence to CD/DVD drive in the CMOS. Save and reboot computer. It should boot from the CD/DVD drive and follow the instructions.
But if this doesn't fix. Try reinstalling Windows. If you are lucky this should repair. But it could also mean it cannot be repaired and you need a fresh install.
Sorry mate and Good luck.

Cd/dvd drive missing on my computer


Enter in the BIOS and see in the boot order or the internal units if the dvd unit is still there. If it isn't then it's dead, replace it.
If it is then you didn't do a correct reinstall. Enter the bios again and make sure the dvd unit is the first in the boot order, boot from a Linux Live-CD like PCLinuxOS and from Computer Management/ Hard Disks  delete all partitions, format the entire disk to something else then format it again to NTFS or FAT. This is the only way you can be sure you are doing a clean install.
