    i booted my Advent K100 laptop up and found that the dvd drive is not listed or registered any where in windows or under bios. power is still getting to the drive because it will still eject but it wont do anything else. i cant reinstall windows or anything because it requires the dvd drive and its being not detected under bios or windows.

    can anyone help please!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You can try pulling it out and pushing it back in but if it does not show in the bios or Windows, you probably need a new drive...oh you can also reset the bios to optimized defaults as well.
