Generally speaking if the system cannot "Find" the CD/DVD then it has a hardware fault. OR the BIOS doesn't recognize any DVD's. If it is the latter then one may be able to "Upgrade" the BIOS, if the first.. then a New unit is only option. Also check to make sure the drive "Jumper" is set to Master, if it is the only device on that Channel, if not then Slave.

Dell system restore

Depending on the operating system, most of the time it is located in the start menu, programs, accessories, then system tools. Restore is a process that takes the computer back to a specific date and time called a checkpoint. Reformat is a process by erasing the entire hard drive and re installing the version of windows you are running.
