Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information

Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

I keep getting this message when trying to start a cd rom or dvd disk...any ideas what I can do to fix this?

my computer uses Matshita DVD-RAM UJ890AS ATA Device...I think this is part of problem...I have a Gateway NV53A computer...please advise.

Thanks
