Hi, i have a Compaq Evo N610c laptop, running windows XP home, the problem is i can't use the DVD drive? i have recently replaced the DC jack therfore have had to take it apart. I don't think i have broken the drive just upset it a little because the CD boots if i set the BIOS to boot from CD drive first but will not work in windows, doesn't show up in windows explorer.
I have poked round device manager and have noticed a yellow exclamation mark over the drive, once clicked it has the error message:

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

If i clck to update the driver, i can't follow it through as i do not have the disk to hand, is there a way of obtaining the drivers without the disk?

Thanks for any help in advance

You could try this to find your driver.

Thanks Karbo, the scan did find some out of date drivers on my system, however it failed to find the driver needed for the DVD rom drive.
Is there any other suggestions?
