    Try Windows update and Windows 7 Compatibility Sites.
  2. Hi,

    My name is vikash and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell

    Verify that the optical drive is enabled in the BIOS (press the power button and start hitting F2 key to enteer to bios)
    If Drive still not detected, Load BIOS defaults.
    Link for Microsoft fixit for optical drive

    Let me know if this helps or if you need any further support
