Where's my DVD/CD Drive gone?

  1. I don't know if anyone's had this problem but recently, I've loaded up windows, then after a while, my computer starts stuttering (about a second's delay between locks - I can tell by moving my mouse). I restart, login and my dvd drive's gone missing although it shows up in bios. I reboot, after a while the same thing happens. Sometimes after the stuttering and rebooting I log back in and my dvd drive's not even there!

    I've ran spyware/virus detections but nothing shows. It's only recently started to mess me about although it has happened before on a previous machine although after a while it just went away!? I can't even use my drive at the moment! I haven't installed anything recently, it's just started to happen! My computer runs fine if the drive's not shown up or if I disable it.

    If anyone knows what's going on, please let me know. Thanks!

    Run scandisk, it could be a bit of minor data damage!!!
