HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N not regognized on laptop (code 41)

I have an HP Pavilion dv8000
My device manager just started not recognizing my DVD burner after I deleted a bunch of programs off my laptop. Error message I get when I do properties on the DVD burner in Device Manager reads:

Windows Successfully loaded the Device driver for this Hardware but cannot find the hardware Device (Code 41)

The DVD burner is listed as: HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N

I cannot figure out how to get to into my bios to see if it recognizes the DVD RW? And if the DVD is broken where can I get a comparable one other than HP who will charge me an arm and leg and is it possible for me to switch out the DVD myself?

If ur using HP computer then start tapping F10 immediately when u start ur comp.. this will take u to Bios.. u should be able to see ur CD/DVD rom there..
second.. Error 41 normally means comp. is unable to read the CD/DVD rom properly.. heres wht u need to do ..

  1. Click Start HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4082N not regognized on laptop - vistastartbutton.jpg, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in thePrograms list.

  2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
  3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
