After coming home from work one day I booted my cpu up and went to play a game, when I put the game in the drive not happened. I clicked on the game's logo on desktop I get "Please insert the correct Halo CD-ROM, select OK and restart the application", I thought it might have been just that game so i tried another and I got the same thing. I checked the device manager and all drives have the yellow !'s by them. One of them has location 0, the other location 1 but both have the same error message..."Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)" I went to HP's site and after 4-5 different things they had me try nothing worked. I cannot use either drive, I cant use regedit, it just pops up and then disappears immediately after. Ctrl+Alt+Del doesnt work either, so after doing full system scans with both Norton Pro, and a trial of SpySubtract most everything is clean but everything I had problems with still dont work. Ive also tried to unistall the drives and reinstall them, doesnt work. Ive tried uninstalling them, pulling the cords off the drives rebooting, then shut down, put the cables back on and cpu and see if they come back and they did but the yellow !'s did too. My only choice appears to be is to do a Non-Destructive recovery or a Full recovery, I dont want to do either till I can backup my most important stuff (my family history files, my personal files, and I used Daemon to play 2 of my games that I no longer have the discs to be able to reinstall them) but with no way to put a cd-rw or dvd-rw disc in the tray and it work I dont know what else to do. If anyone on here can help me prevent from losing my important data, it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!
