Corrupted or lost driver code 39

I am receiving a Code 39 driver corrupted or missing. I need help trying to fix this. It is for my cd rom drive. It's not even listed in "My computer" Can you please help me out with this? Thank you for the replies,
Part of the problem is that I don't have any of the CD's that go to the computer. I don't have the Window XP anymore, and I don't have the cd with the drivers, so I am not sure how I would reinstall the driver once I delete it.
Let me know if I uninstall, how do I reinstall without the driver disk.
If you could with step by step, I am no where near a pro at this, maybe just a little computer illiterate.
I really do appreciate the fast reponse and help.
Thanks again!

Yes you can start the re-installation from safe mode although you can start the installation by changing the boot order to CD-ROM in the BIOS configuration.

Before you re-install XP it is a good idea to back up all your data to a slave or storage drive first as a clean install will wipe all your data.

If you would like to know anything else please post back.

It should tell you the exact name of the missing driver and you can replace it. Or, reinstall windows over top of itself as a repair. It should replace the missing driver.

Lost drive for HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-H21L

When starting up your PC, just before the Windows startup logo appears and after the PC starts up, press F8, and then choose the "Last Known configuration" startup.

You can start working from there on...
