  1. I have a sony vaio VGN-SZ18GP.

    My cd-rom isn't working. My windows can't even detect my cd-rom. How can I fix this?

    If it`s not seen at all in the Device Manager,then either the cable/plug have worked loose,or the drive is dead.

    If the Device Manager sees it,but says it has a problem,then uninstall/remove the device,from the Device Manager and restart.
    If you turn the computer back on and the device has not automatically fixed itself,then manually
    re-install it via the add new hardware wizard.

    If that doesn`t work,the next poster might help.

    Try reseating the CDROM drive.
