Your call.
Not similar enough. How about drivers from other sites?

I tried to boot from my win 7 cd, but got the following error "cannot boot from CD code:5". Maybe i took the wrong cd though, ill try to get the right cd tomorrow since i cant see which one is the correct one (havent marked them in any way) without inserting them in a player.

I tried a driver from another site "SATA Intel SATA Driver AHCI 8.9.0.1023 21.4 MB 2009/10/22". It installed "intel matrix storage console", where you cane see hard drive status. It says that all hard drives are OK and functioning. So the real problem is the cd-rom not functioning.

Remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values completely from the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

The page does not open when all startup items are disabled in MSConfig. Any ideas?
A possible cause is a 4-port USB hub which recently failed. The problem persisted when the USB hub was disconnected after reboot. Have now replaced the USB hub. Devide Manager reports that all devices are working properly. Still no Devices and Printers page.

Have a look at this thread it may help you resolve your problem -
https://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/8157-device-printer-panel-does-not-load.html

Try the below which will test for corrupted system files - have your W7 install DVD handy - try this if the first solution isnt applicable.

Click Start
Type: CMD, from the results, right click CMD
Click 'Run as Administrator'
At the Command Prompt, type: sfc/scannow
