    hey, hope everyone had a nice christmas!, but i have a problem, i just popped a game into my cd drive, waited for it to auto run, and as it didnt i looked under "my computer" and say that i no longer have a cd/dvd drive?? i went through device manager and see the error "Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)" anyone got any ideas?

    If you have recently popped in some new software try using system restore to get back previous settings and see if the cdrom "re-appears".
