If the drive is still good you should be able to go to device manager and go to the dvd and right click on it and remove it then confirm removal and exit and reboot the computer when it reboots and is up and running the new hardware found will show up on the taskbar and it will begin installation of the cd and it will notify you when it is complete if it installs it and it still does not work you may want to get a new cd/dvd/ rom or see if you can download a new driver from the web www.driver.pro.com

My Hp pavilion 533w Desktop's dvd drive wont open or blink(light)


Try the brute force method: stop the pc, open its case, disconnect the data cable from the dvd, close the case and reboot, run a registry cleaner,stop the pc, make sure the hard disk is set as master and the dvd set as slave and reconnect the dvd, start the pc.

Norton 360 install has replaced/overridden DVD drive


Hi, I can certainly understand how you feel and hope I can help.

error 19 isnt necesarily a corrupt driver, it can be 2 drivers trying to use the same resource (as in norton's backup drive and your cd drive, for example)

Try this - Click the start button, right click on "Computer", select "Properties", then click "Device Manager" in the upper left hand corner.

Open the bit that says "CD/DVD Drives" and try right clicking on the drives there and selecting "Update Driver Software". This will probably do nothing. Don't worry, I didnt really expect it to. Now right click on the drives, and select "Delete" and then reboot. This will reset the drivers for ya.

This fix usually DOES work. Most of the time. If it doesnt work, try the ones below.

To run a dvd on windows media player you need the corect codec, it is better to use "power dvd" or somethign to watch dvds. For the cd drive not working, this error code means it is not been reconized. Try doing the following. goto control panel and system, then goto device manager, uninstall the cdrom drivers and restart pc, maybe this will clear the conflict.

Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or not recognized by Windows or other programs, so you cannot play or access a CD or DVD. This issue might have occurred after you installed, uninstalled, or updated a program or Windows Vista.

This issue may have occurred after one of the following situations:
  • You upgrade a computer to Windows Vista or install Windows Vista Service Pack 1.
  • You install or uninstall CD or DVD recording programs.
  • You uninstall Microsoft Digital Image.
You may see one of the following error messages:
  • One of the following error messages appears when you view the CD drive or the DVD drive in Device Manager.

    Error message 1 The device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device (Code 31). Error message 2 A driver for this device was not required, and has been disabled (Code 32 or Code 31). Error message 3 Your registry might be corrupted. (Code 19)
  • An "error code 39" error message.
  • A message that resembles the following appears in the notification area: Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

GMA 4082n device driver not working properly code 39


First go into Setup (usually F1,F2 or del) at start-up. See if your drives show up there. With Windows running, right click My Computer, left click Properties, left click Hardware, left click Device Manager, left click DVD/CD-ROM drives. Also check IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Do the drives show up there? If they do right click on drive and left click Update Driver. If they are not there go back to System Properties and left click on Add Hardware Wizard. This will search for devices. It may ask you to insert Windows CD which of course you can not do because the drives don't work. Try a different drive. When you cleaned out your computer did you delete or uninstall Office? That may be what caused this problem. None of this may work but it is a starting point.
