Hello all! a while back the wife installed Windows 7. She has an HP DV9000. The DVD worked because it allowed her to install Windows 7. Since then it doesn't work. So I have checked the device manager and a DVD player is not even listed. The other day I was installing a new touchpad and mouse on her laptop and decided to disconnet the DVD player and then reconnect it to make sure the DVD player was connected properly.
Even after this Windows 7 device manager does not even list that my wife's laptop has a DVD-ROM. Any ideas or suggestions?

Wow, i had the same problem last week, the only reason i knew my DVD ROM was inoperative was, I could not install Windows Vista Service pack 1. What i did, was reinstall my operating system. I have had a bad virus that manipulated my system. I wish I could help you, all i can do is suggest Windows Fix it center, and see if it will help you.
