Windows 7: Missing CD drives/ PCI Driver?

I have googled the heck out of my board and I cannot seem to find a homepage for it, am I missing something? I am really not a dummy, but please lay it out for me simpler as I can't seem to retrieve what you need. My board is the Asus P7H55-M Pro with I5 660 CPU if that helps.

Click on "filter problem" in my post which is a link and you will see. Then just apply the proposed fix. Maybe it helps, maybe it does'nt.

All your drivers are there.

If you need to update your BIOS to V0601,all there.

Well I guess I am just screwed. I tried all the Bios settings and NONE of them say they are compatible with my version of windows. 32 and 64....even though I have 64. Driver detective I have already on a disk, the disk also contains my registration number, and I will not purchase another one just because I cannot access the disk. I just do not understand this at all. Everything worked fine with the XP install I had last night, and now I can not even bring up the set up menu for that because I have no cd drives to read from.

My drives have showed up on Windows 7 before though which is what is aggravating me the most. Nothing has changed except my board and processor and as far as I can tell I have all my drivers for those. Thanks for the effort.
