Default Missing dvd's

Yep!,we are are our own worst enemy.
wanted to upgrade to win 7 64bit os.Moved what was non essental to other drive to try and ensure I would not delete them. installed 2 more gig's of identical memory (total now of 4 gig's).after boot up system see's new memory but DVD's are missing from system.Have tried to go online to see if "upgrade " would help but it failed to find or install drivers.Found one driver for one DVD player.but can't get windows to access it.It see's it as a CD drive.Would wipe C:\ and reinstall win7 64 bit,but need DVD to install os.Bios see's drives, but not sure if they would work as DVD drives.
and yes have checked all connections, thrice.

What a rip off when I worked there, they were charging $139. I am so glad that I don't work there any more.
