Hello,
i have an acer aspire 5100 laptop running vista and for some reason my cd/dvd rom stopped working. It is no longer in the device manager. when i put a cd in my drive it lights up and spins but nothing happens so i know power is getting to it. but vista wont recognize it. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Is it listed in your BIOS? press f2 at boot to check, if it is it is a problem within Windows, if it isn;t then the cable has likely become detached and you'll have to delve into the laptop to secure it.
