How to fix my dvd cd not detected under Computer, Device Manager on HP pavilion dv6812nr Vista?

I bought it used and I just found this problem, the dvd cd rom not detected. Under Computer there is only the C:. The dvd cd rom is not under the Device Manager either.  When trying to use it, the light comes on, and it opens. After shutting it, it sounds like it is trying to read it then nothing. No message nothing. When starting computer, the d: which was the dvd cd rom shows up (yesterday) then disappears. I have tried downloading drivers (nvidia, still on computer) and the regedit to no avail. Help please!!

Hi:

 

I haven't had one person report that this automated fix works.

 

Please break my winless (or losing) streak.
