Hello,
My DVD rom does not show up in "My Computer" or "Device Manager". I see it in the "setup" menu at start up. It did boot once from the boot screen but now is no longer showing up there. I have tried the "filter fixes" in the registry, Fix it but still no success. Running WinVista x32 Home Premium and need a quick, easy, and permanent fix. Any suggestions???

Thanks,
Troy

The make and model of laptop would be useful in helping to solve the problem. Has the drive still got power (can you eject the drive drawer?). You could try setting bios to default settings.
