My pc suddenly doesn't recognize my cd rom. I can't play cd's or save to them. Tried to delete and re-install & search for updates but says error 39 I have corrupted driver? How can I restore and get it back? :thumbsup:

It could be as simple as a bad CMOS (motherboard) battery. It is a coin size battery located on your motherboard. It allows your computer to remember the BIOS settings when your computer is turned off. There are about $4 add most department, discount, or drug stores. There are several sizes so if you decide to replace it bring it with you, or atleast write the battery number download.
It should be replaced every 2 years .

Have you tried a system restore to before you had the problem? I recently had a similar problem and did System Restore and then it wouldn't boot, so I had to use Last Known Good Configuration, whereupon it booted and gave the message that the restore was successful. It's been working fine ever since.
