How do I uncorrupt my corrupt CD-Rom drivers?

When I pop in a CD or DVD it doesn't autoplay and it doesn't even show up in the computer section. I know that they are corrupt because I checked the properties when I right clicked the icon in control panel>System>device manager. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling them but it didn't work.

What exactly tells you it is the SATA or IDE controller driver, which is what drives the OD?

Try physically reinstalling the OD, checking connections or changing cabling, cleaning the drive, trying another, updating the firmware which is all that is installed for the OD specifically.

This is exactly what it says: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

If this problem just recently started have you tried restoring your machine to an earlier date/time?

System Restore

You could also see if your machine has any damaged or corrupt system files by running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (Option Two in this tutorial.) If problems are found run the scan two more times, rebooting in between scans.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I tried the system restore a couple of times. Even tried restoring my setting from my online source. Will try the System file checker.

It isn't recognizing me as an administrator. That's another problem I have been having with it. I can not install programs or anything. Getting frustrated here. Should I create another user profile and try it then after making it the administrator?

You can try that. You can also boot the Win7 DVD REpair console (on second screen) or Repair CD to run System Restore and System File Checker from the Command Line on the System Recovery Tools menu: SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

You get this error message in the Device Manager under which device exactly?

Have you tried updating or reinstalling the driver or the OD itself? To update or reinstall the driver, on Update Driver tab select Update driver then choose Automatically. If this fails choose Uninstall Driver and reboot.

Yes. That is what it says. And I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Can not do the boot repair disk, because it isn't reading and auto running the CD-Rom. I'm on a laptop, btw. And can not physically remove it
