Http:// This problem tells you that windows has loacted the device driver but cannot find the hardware device. I would try going to HP website and letting it "autodetect" your PC. See if there is an updated driver for YOUR device. You just may have the wrong driver installed for the device. Opening a laptop is a pain, so I would take it somewhere and make sure the connections are good on the inside. If none of this works, your device is in need of replacement.

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. I cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. To resolve this behavior, follow these steps: Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe). Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK. Quit Registry Editor.NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance. Restart your computer.

My computer list the cd-rom but have exclamation points by both units. the error code 41

A yellow circle with a black explamation point indicated that the device is not funcioning correctly. This is usually resolved by upgrading the firmware/drivers for the device. I went on and found the latest for your CD-RW drive and have included the link below.
Please click Firmware in blue on the page and then download the latest. It is reccomended you create a system restore point prior to installing in the unlikely case that the install causes system instability.
If that happens you can press F8 as windows boots and select boot into Safe Mode. Then go to control panel, system, device manager, select the device, properties, driver, and hit roll back driver.
Hope this helps Please vote if so :) Have a great day

My tsstcorp cdw/dvd TS-H492C rom is not being displayed on my displays a message... Dat is windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device....

I see this is a month old,but I'll answer this for anyone doing a future search that may come across this thread.
The link is to Microsoft's on-line repair center.This will fix several error codes,including 41,and is probably the first thing to try when your optical drive is installed but Windows can't find it.
If this helps with your problem,and anyone in the future,would you rate my post please?

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) Laptop Levono y530, device dvd rw optiarc AD-7580s I tried to uninstall & reinstall it, but...

Give this a whirl:
CD-Rom stops working. After checking device manager you find an exclamation mark on the drive. It doesn't mean the drive is dead. It could be an upperfilter or lowerfilter registry issue that is keeping you from accessing the cd drive.

This fix worked for my client:

Also, try this fix from microsoft.

CD-ROM access is missing and messages cite error code 31, code 32, code 19, code 39, or code 41.

Try this before replacing the drive and remember that you may have to reinstall some burning software.
