missing dvd/cd drive-amilo pa 1538

it seems alot of people have had this problem, ive tried all the fixes ive found on the net.. cd gone regedit, deleted upper and lower filters, tried a repair with my windows recovery cd(which did boot from boot set-up wierdly enough) but windows will still not recognise my drive.
problem started a couple months ago, my drive would show up SOMETIMES,
but now it seems its gone for good.
i cant find any other ideas short of doing a full windows install. any new ideas out there before i go hardcore on this thing?

open and close the tray and when its closed try pushing it a little in, this worked on my pa 1538 , might be a loose power connector ,also afterwards o into bios and set to default settings then reboot, it should show up in the bios again
