Windows 7: CD/DVD drives stopped working! Help please!

CD/DVD drives stopped working! Help please!

I have a big problem with my pc. When I start up it says "Sr risk of instability [Expert] - Allows full customization of performance options. Advanced users only". It says that under where it says the memory frequency, primary master, primary slave.

It gives me the option to press F1 to continue. When i do, windows boots like normal but the only problem is that the cd drive and dvd drive dont work. When i go to device manager it says the devices are working fine and the drivers are up to date but when i put a cd or dvd in it says "E:\ is not accessible. The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable." E:\ is my cd/dvd drive.

Can anyone help me?

I do not understand where the system is when you see this error.

Is windows already started?

You have a hardware level problem. It could be a simple configuration error in BIOS. It could be a failure. I will read through your posts and BIOS manual.

Write down the settings you used to overclock.

Then, set all BIOS options back to standard or default.

Boot to test.

Report.

I have not actualy done any bios overclocking. I changed the frequency to 200 there was a choice between 100/133/166/200. Even if i use fail safe settings it still doesnt work.

Well, I suppose there is more than one way to solve a problem.

I have installed build 7000 and it has been working pretty good for the last week. Now my usb drives and sticks stopped working. OS will see the drives, but cannot access them. It shows drive as raw data, when I plug it in on XP or Vista the drive works fine. What could cause this??
