Default DVD/CD Drive Problem. Please Help!

I received a computer from a friend (who didn't want it), and there were a number of problems with it. For example, the sound wasn't working (I was able to fix this problem). However, there is a problem I am having trouble fixing: the DVD/CD drive "ASUS E616 16x DVD + (I think) 40x CD" has a problem. In the device manager it says: "the driver may be corrupted or missing" and there is an exclamation mark next to it.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to resolve this matter,
Many thanks,

so reinstall the driver!
google it, or check on DriverGuide.com (printer drivers, cdrom drivers, modem drivers, sound drivers, mouse drivers, monitor drivers, etc.) - DriverGuide.com
