it has an alert thing with the ! and says this under status.. Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

i'm not sure, i deleted mainly empty folders; i dont know if any of them had something todo with that.. cause if thats the case shouldnt i just to a system restore?

open it up where you see the ! and uninstall it, then try re installing it and see if it will find the drivers for it.

i uninstalled something called "dvd santa" before, and lost my cdrw. that was when i first found computer forums . i ended up doing a reformat, but im sure you will get over this problem.

if you double klick it in the device manager then uninstall the driver. then try installing driver again from the same place.
