Hello, i just bought an hp pavilion g6 2206 ss and the first day i had to make a system restore and i also used daemon tools to read an iso file and deleted the virtual drive afterwards.
Thing is that now my dvdROM drive makes some noise from time to time even if there´s no cd or dvd inside. The noise is new, it didnt happen when it was brand new... what could it be?

i think i have deleted the CD ROM drive by accident using daemon tools... because now i only have the DVD ROM drive, and i have checked in other computers and they have 2 drives, DVD and CD, mine has only DVD now...
Is there any way to get it back?

Anytime that you delete hardware , when you do a restart Windows will find the hardware and attempt to install it.
You can also do a system restore.
You can also go to the web page of the brand of the dvd/cd rom and see if there are drivers for it.

You should check your connections because I had the same issue and it was a loose connecter , so check both the sata power and data cables. If your using the sata cables without the metal clip then there's nothing to keep it from sliding out when ever you open the case and move wires trying to get at something.

Since it's a laptop you can check the slide out tray and make sure it's getting closed all the way.
