Default HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N (DVD WRITER) Problem

Hey, kinda in a bit of a mess.

OK new laptop for christmas Acer Aspire 3610
DVD drive name: HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N

I installed all the latest antivirus and games and stuff on it, using the cd/dvd drive (DVD DRIVE WORKED AT THIS POINT), it then was happy to install updates from microsoft, but now i have the problem of my dvd drive is like not there, i then went to device manager, and it says corrupt drivers (about the 4th time the laptop has booted) i took the decision from the forums else where to update the driver - no results, another was to uninstall the device, reboot and it should auto detect the new hardware, all good i thought, it did just that, auto detected, installed i went to load cd, and no luck, checked my computer and the dvd drive is not there, in device manager it shows corrupt drivers again, the thing is i looked everywhere over the net for these drivers, no where
HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N
thats the DVD drive, if anyone could help me with this problem, i would be greatly pleased, i no its off topic a bit.
I have screenshots that show in better detail. BTW i checked the bios and it shows the DVD drive to be there so therefore must be purely windows errors right.
Thanks
Cameron

well it's possible that the drive is broken.
The easiest thing to do would be just to take it back to where u bought it from. Since it's new u should have a warrenty so they will fix it for free.
