Default D And E Drives

for some reason after doing a system restore both my CD/DVD drivers dissapeared and when i checked the device manager i got this message

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

not knowing much about computers i don't know how to fix this problem

please could someone inform me on how i would go about fixing this??

(i have Windows XP Pro by the way and bearing in mind i do not have the CD for them)

thnx in advance

I WAS going to tell you to either reinstall XP or just format but I see that you don't have the CD...

I would shut down ur comp, disconnect them, boot, shutdown, connect them again, boot and see if they work.

Well I too what recommend something with the disk..

I guess you could unconnect the Drives from the IDE cable, and then start your computer and let it load windows. Shut down correctly, then reconnect the cables.

When the computer restarts, try hitting the Del key, or if you know what key enters you to your bios, and see if it recognizes them.

Not very practicle, but maybe youll get lucky :/ - something similar happened to my friend.
