Re: my cd driver on my new pc has stopped working.it will...
Should read>: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)etc?
well: Reasons for this error include a driver that is not present; a binary file that is corrupted; a file I/O problem, or a driver that references an entry point in another binary file that could not be loaded.
Uninstall the driver, and then click, Scan for hardware changes to reinstall or upgrade the driver.
this may help, or you may need to use the recovery console: this page should help you deal with that: support.microsoft.com/kb/307654

From your description I understand that the DVD drive is not working and you have code 39 error in device manager.
Do not worry, run the following fix on the pc and then restart the notebook. http://www.techiesspot.com/filez/cddvdfix.reg
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.
Try going to the device manager and uninstalling the dvd drive, reboot the laptop and windows will recognize the device and reload the frivers for it. It may even ask to go to windows update and search for a fresh driver, allow that and let windows finsh the installation. Reboot and try the device for function.
weird. Try using Windows System Restore to revert back to before installing dameon tools. You can try installing it again but I would re-download just to be safe. It it happens again you might want to try alcohol 120% instead.
