Cd rom missing in xp

My cd rom has disappeared from my computer. Icon is gone as well as Device manager. I tried deleting the upper and lower filters as told in other discussions- but the right hand window pane under registry is blank. I tried to create a date to try a system restore- but its like the calender is frozen. Otherwise the computer runs fine.HELP!!!

    I tried this already- it won't run after it's installed- gives me an error. But thanks
  2. Try running it in safe mode.

    Does the drive show up in the BIOS, when the PC is booting?
