CD/DVD disappeared from computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,
    I have lost all evidence of having a CD/DVD rom in my laptop. I am running an HP Pavilion dv2214us with Vista Premium. The CD/DVD icon is gone in the control panel, there is no CD/DVD in the device manager, and I have even looked in the bios as suggested by MS self help. And of course, the DVD tray and underside have no model numbers listed in sight. When a disc is put in, the unit starts, the light comes on and 15 seconds later, it stops. All the "auto starts" are on.
    Has anyone had this happen and if so, how'd you cure it?
