Dell XPS M1330 doesn't detect optical drive

I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop. The OS is Windows 10. I had to replace the motherboard because it was bad. After replacing the motherboard I noticed the optical (DVD/CD) drive is neither detected in BIOS and OS nor making any noise at all. Everything else seems to be working fine. The optical drive was working before I replaced the motherboard. So I removed the optical drive and the connector cable and cleaned the cable and the pins on the optical drive with a toothbrush and put the laptop back and booted. This time I could hear the optical drive making noise right after I boot. When I tried to insert a CD it accepted the CD and I can hear it spinning. However, the DVD/CD drive is still not listed in BIOS nor in the OS. In the BIOS, it says "none" for fixed bay device. The DVD/CD drive is not listed in the boot menu either when I press F12 to select a boot device.

What does this tell you?

NAME
aac -- Adaptec AdvancedRAID Controller driver SYNOPSIS
aac* at pci? dev ? function ? ld* at aac? unit ? DESCRIPTION
The aac driver provides support for the Adaptec AAC family of SCSI and SATA RAID controllers. These controllers support RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, and volume sets. They have four channels in the add-in version or 1-2 channels in the motherboard integrated version, and are most often found rebadged by Dell, Hewlett-Packard or IBM. Supported controllers include: o Adaptec AAC-364 o Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S o Adaptec SCSI RAID 2200S o Adaptec SATA RAID 2410SA o Adaptec SATA RAID 3405 o Adaptec SCSI RAID 5400S o Dell PERC 2/Si o Dell PERC 2/QC o Dell PERC 3/Di o Dell PERC 3/Si o Dell PERC 320/DC o Dell CERC SATA RAID 1.5/6ch o HP NetRAID 4M o HP ML110 G2 (Adaptec SATA RAID 2610SA) o IBM ServeRAID 8k Access to RAID containers is available via the ld device driver. Individual drives cannot be accessed unless they are part of a container or volume set, and non-fixed disks cannot be accessed. Containers can be configured by using the on-board BIOS utility of the card. DIAGNOSTICS
The adapter can send status and alert messages asynchronously to the driver. These messages are printed on the system console. SEE ALSO
intro(4), ld(4) HISTORY
The aac driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.6, and was based on the FreeBSD driver of the same name. BUGS
This driver is not compatible with controllers that have version 1.x firmware. The firmware version is the same as the kernel version printed in the BIOS POST and driver attach messages. BSD
