    as many of you know, windows has stopped detecting my cd rom drives and cannot detect the ac'97 either... when the computer boots though, it detects the drives, but once windows comes up it doesn't come up with ANYTHING, then i even went out to buy a whole new cd-r drive and connected it, and it was detected in windows for ONE SECOND, then came up with the gay error of:

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

    is this a hardware of software problem? seems like hardware? this is damn frustratin'

    Have you tried booting to a CDROM?

    I'm wondering if this is a Windows issue or a controller issue.
    I take it you have checked the BIOS over?

    Have you tried clearing your CMOS?
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
