Running W7 64 bit, CD_ROM is ASUS DRW 24B1ST. I removed a sound card and deleted the drivers for it. (Plan on using a new USB sound card) Now the computer will not recognize the optical drive. I have gone back to all the restore points I have to no avail. (I am not sure actually when the drive stopped working as I don't use it often.) I get the following message from Device Manager: "configuration infor in registry is incomplete or damaged (Code 19)." I have tried deleting the driver and rebooting. I have run Microsoft's "Mr. Fixit" which indicated a problem with the driver. I have tried the ASUS website but haven't been able to get a driver download. Any help will be appreciated before I lose what littsle hair I have left.

Try doing a repair install of windows (using USB), that should fix registry issues. The driver normally comes with the OS for the optical drive.

Thanks for the help. One question will doing a repair install of windows make me lose all data files on the hard drive or will it just correct the registry? Thanks again. I owe you a cup of coffee

It will not corrupt any data normally although they warn of a slight risk it might happen in win versions prior to 7.
