Could be a bad connection pull out the CD ROM and make sure it is clean.Also could just be your CD ROM is going bad.

I get this intermittently on my dell desktop. Its done it since it was brand new. Unplugging and replugging all the drive cables usually fixes it. Its a wierd bug.

Yes it sounds like a loose IDE cable. Be sure to contact the manufacture to find out where the cable can be located.

Check the manual. on most laptops you slide a switch and a level comes out which you can pull it with in order to swap it for floppy or battery
