ARGH! I was in the process of upgrading to Windows 7 and it stopped and told me that I needed to restart the computer for some reason I don't remember before it can proceed with installation and that nothing the installation did would be changed (so basically I was just restarting the computer because the install cancelled). I had the Windows 7 ISO disc in the drive and as it was preparing the restart, I opened it and took it out. It shut down then came back up and I have no CD/DVD drive! It won't load the drivers now. I can't even play a CD if I want to! No, I don't have any kind of external optical drive either and nor do I know anyone with one. The only programs I had to uninstall for Windows 7 were Adobe Encore Logitech Messenger (for my webcam). Also, I got a BSOD yesterday. It happened while I was moving files (just downloads, pictures, music, etc...) to my external HD.

Oh, here's the messages I have from device manager on the CV/DVD.

HD-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H40N ATA Device:

I clicked the 'Check for solutions' for both but brought up no solutions at all.

Here's the BSOD crashed report analyzed by the program WhoCrashed.

The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Likely the culprit is another driver on your system which cannot be identified.
