    Unhappy Computer does not show CD-rom drives

    when I click MY COMPUTER, it only shows C and D (recovery), but not E and F drives (CD/DVD rom drives). I am running windows 7 64 bit. Don't know what I did, but would appreciate advice on how to fix the problem.

    is your CD/ DVD drive detected in other OS (vista/ XP).
    May be there is some wire problem or your DVD is no more in working condition.

    Go to start, Run, type in "device manager" (without the quotes), expand dvd/cd drives and see if your drives are listed. If they are listed, right click and uninstall them both one at a time. Close device manager and reboot your system. On restarting wait a few minutes for windows to reinstall drivers then check My Computer to see if they are now present.

    Alternatively, you can try the fantastic free utility from The Windows Club "FixWin Utility" http://www.thewindowsclub.com/repair...fixwin-utility

    Hi,
    this may not be a virus.
    to be sure, go to the BIOS and enable BIOS virus alert.
    check if BIOS cache is enabled.

    if its not a hardware failure issue it is usually just a registry key that needs deleting from windows registry.. have faced it a few times and everytime deleting a particular registry key solved it for me.. just google it and u will get what i mean
