See if you can reset the bios; look for a motherboard battery and try removing it for one minute with the system off. Then reconnect the dvd drive with both the power supply and sata cables and try again.

If you add some information such laptop model, we could give you some suggestions, particularly specific suggestions regarding BIOS settings which may not be set correctly to detect DVD-ROM drive.

1) ack! i just posted the same problem but is for my desktop. but my dvd drive won't even open (SATA btw)...so I can't install my OS which is Win 7 ultimate. Not even the BIOS detects it.

2) when i used my old IDE roms [1 cd/dvdr (working fine)], [1 samsung that powers on, but does not read which i consider broken] BIOS does detect both.

3) Are there any other solution then buying a new Drive? of course I'm going to buy the ALL-IN-1 drive..If i have to =\

i've tried to open the lappy back cover to find the cmos battery. it kind of hard to get it loose, and it stuck near the battery compartment. and i dont want to risk breaking the cover. any other solution perhaps?

noname89 try clearing the CMOS on your motherboard.Your mothrboard manual should hae a section re. this.
