Typing from my iPhone now. It allowed me to boot from my recovery disk. Will attempt to repair it now.

Reboot and tap the F8 key to access Advanced Boot Options to see if the Repair console is on that menu. If so, boot into it and run the repairs as given above.

When and where exactly do you get the error message? I have asked several times here and it still isn't clear. You said you verified the OD drivers are corrupted in Device Manager properties. Where does this message appear there? If it appears elsewhere, where? And what appears in Device Manager exactly which tells you this. We need fuller information to help you since we are not there watching what you're doing.

When did this problem begin? Were you doing anything specific, or were changes made you can recall? How is performance otherwise? You mentioned System Restore is not working. This is a bad sign. Is it turned on at Computer>Properties>Advanced Tools>System Protection? Are there any Restore Points at all?

It shows it when I select the device and then right click on it. I think I will buy the Windows 7 CD and upgrade this laptop. Or take to the local shop here. Thanks for ur help, but I give up. I'm no software specialist.

Please consult with your device manufacturer for assistance getting this device installed.

After I uninstall and reintall it automatically on a reboot I get this message. TSST corp CDDVDW TS-L633F ATA Device Failed

One other thought that might help. Since your specs indicate you have a Toshiba Satellite, have you checked on the Toshiba website for their latest free drivers/software downloads? Perhaps even a toll-free number for tech support or warranty info?

I also came across this Microsoft "Fix it" article.
