CD RW drive not working

  vazstar 20:23 10 Mar 05

I have a Gateway VX720 pc, OS Windows 200
just recently discovered that my CDRW drive doesnt work- when I put a disk inside, it says that there is no disk in drive- it appears that the Drive has been disconnected/uninstalled completely.
I dont have the installation CDs so cannot reinstall the drive. Is there anythign I can do?
please help asap!
