Question Vista Not detecting Dvd Drive after system crash

Ok so i was playing a game, and my computer did a completely random crash. When i re-booted, My DvD-Drive wasnt recongnised in Device Manager, complete with lack of any drivers for it. It is an LG DVD drive but appart from that i dont know much about it. Im Running Vista home premuim with 3gigs of ram and a quad core.

Can anyone help? Like ive searched for Drivers to see if that could help but it seems to do nothing.

Cheers guys

Find the model number and see if this will help. Also check the PC Manufacturer's site.
