Unhappy Experts Needed....laptop Help!!!

hello....I just got a Kapok/Clevo 3100c series laptop.....Specs are: celeron 466mhz processor, Intel 440bx chip motherboard, 10gb 4200 rpm hard drive, 128mb ram, dvd drive Torisan drd 424(Sanyo).

well anyway....when i bought had a screen display had windows xp home installed and the dvd drive worked (i connected it to an external monitor to test). well later on i formated the hard drive thinking that it could be driver problems that could be making the display not work. so i formated the hard drive and then the dvd drive wouldnt work anymore to load xp back on. i downloaded the driver for the dvd rom and tried to install it....but it said "no drives found/connected". (but the floppy drive still works). i checked in the bios and it can only see the floppy drive and hard drive. i checked the connection on dvd drive many times....but it just isnt seeing the drive. (i found out later that the screen wasnt working because of a connection... and got it working)

anyone know what could be the problem?....i dont think its the drive thats bad...because it worked until i formated the hard drive. the bios auto detects the floppy...hard drive...and does not find dvd rom.

any help would be very appreciated.
