Default Corrupt CD-ROM driver

I have a Gateway GT5412 PC running windows Vista. The CD-ROM driver keeps failing to install properly with an error message saying it's missing, corrupt, or invalid. I have searched online for specific drivers and can't find any. I also copied drivers from the another computer (Same model) and tried installing those, but it still refuses to work.

The drive itself seems to be okay, it boots, and works properly in miniPE and Linux boots.

I can't find any manufacturer ID on the drive, but I believe it's a Phillips Lite-on (twas the manu given by a website) and the only model # I can find is DH16W1P

Halp Pls.

System: Athlon 64 X2 3800+
EVGA Geforce 8600 GTS 256mb PCIE
ECS (pile of crap) Mobo
1.5 GB Corsair PC3200
Soundblaster Audigy Pro
Windows XP Pro, Lemming Optimized.
