I don't think that it is the serious issue to worry because it may happen if your laptop is not even open for these many days, the system may take time to start and also may behave in the manner that you won't expect , the thing here is that you first check out with your bios and see to it that the CD drive is enabled or not , because if it is not then you may loose the access over it .

Re: not getting the CD/DVD drive on Windows 7

I have gone through your problem and it seems to me that you can solve your problem by just following the below steps:
  • First of all go to RUN by clicking on Start
  • After that write Open regedit in it and then click OK.
  • After that you will get the following registery System / CurrentControlSet / Control / Class / {4D36E965-E325-11CE}
  • Then just click on it then will be directed to the file box
  • After that just save the File name box.
  • Once you are done with it you make sure that you delete the upper filter and lower filter.
