Okay, so, here I am enjoying the computer games and the online activities and such, and suddenly my PC freezes dead. No error message, nuttin'.
I shutdown and restart, do some poking around, and discover that according to my PC's mighty technological brain (and in spite of evidence to the contrary) I no longer have a CD or DVD-ROM drive.
So I do the obvious things, crack open the case, make sure they're connected and getting power and whatnot... nuttin'. When I power back up, they work for, say, an hour, and then the Disk Drive Fairy comes and takes 'em away again.
My question to all you considerably more computer-literate Wieners out there is this: Does this sound like a software problem, a hardware problem, or what? I'm at a loss, here, what with the complete lack of any error messages or signs of trouble (aside, of course, from the freezing and mysterious disappearances of my optical media).

Well Midway Airlines (local to North Carolina and the East Coast) went out of business last night. They are discontinuing their Boeing 747 service, and the majority of their employees are going to be "generally unemployed".
