Try right clicking the Drive in Device Manager, and click Uninstall....then reboot your computer and it should re-install it for you

It doesnt mean that the driver is corrupted, its caused by an IRQ that cannot be shared. This may occur when a PCI/EISA SCSI controller is sharing an IRQ that is also in use by a real-mode device driver that Windows cannot change.

To resolve this error code, remove the real-mode driver that is using the same IRQ as this device. The real-mode driver may be loading in the Config.sys or Autoexec.bat file.
