Missing driver in 2006 Packard Bell computer bought from PC World
My computer ceased to recognise the manufacturer installed Philips dvd burner, type 8801. In Device Manager the site where the driver should be, is filled by an exclamation mark, which presumably means that the driver software has somehow been deleted. I think the problem started after a drive defragmentation proccess but I am not certain on this.
Can you please tell me from where I can download a replacement driver for the 8801

Packard Bell is a Dutch computer manufacturer and a subsidiary of Acer. The name was previously used by Packard Bell, an American radio manufacturer founded in 1926. In 1986, Israeli investors bought the name for a newly formed personal computer manufacturer. Originally the company produced discount computers in the US and Canada. When it left the North American computer industry in 2000, it quickly became a leader in the European and African markets. NEC took it over in the late 1990s. The Taiwanese computer manufacturerAcer acquired it in 2008. ( source: WIki. )
You need to UNINSTALL the drivers and not delete them if you had done so on the PC. If this wont help it is possible that the OS must be reinstalled after formatting of the drive and thereby the drivers can be installed.
assuming the cables are plugged in to the back of the drives, this is usually due to a problem with the class drivers in the windows registry, usually caused by a cd burning program or the like. Not sure what operating system you are using, so here is a link to all the different OS's that are affected by this, with there solutions.
You'll need to install the driver for that particular sound device - Windows doesn't have drivers for every single piece of hardware ever made. (You can probably download it from the site of the sound device manufacturer, or the site of the computer manufacturer.)
I have read many posts about the PB Imedia and problems trying to upgrade memory. Sounds like there are some motherboard issues with this PC . Some have reported success with mixing different memory types and speeds, but no real answers as to why.
You may have to check the voltage that powers the memory. Some memory sticks are rated at 1.8v , others use other voltages that will hang your system if mixed.
Check with the manufacturer for their recommendation.
