It seems as though you have swappable equipment on your laptop, such as a removable hard drive, optical disk drive, etc. The bay these devices swap into might be faulty or the devices themselves might be as well. It is also possible that the device has simply fallen out.

Does everything seem to be working correctly aside from the error message? DVd rom drive? PCMCIA Card?

It appears that your DVD rom drive has come loose or has gone bad. Following your instruction manual remove and re-seat the drive and see if it starts working.

How to restore it? The drive should only go in one way; push it in firmly/carefully until it “clicks” into place. Enter the BIOS and see if it is detected; if it isn’t, then you either have a bad port on the motherboard or have a bad drive.
