Lost my DVC CD RW drive... Registry Problem.  Help!

  1. Am running Fujitzu Lifebook S7020 with TEAC DV-W28E DVD/CD RW optical drive. Drive is working OK, as I can boot from it using Fujitsu recovery disc (which gives me option of reformating my HD and rebuilding my system--not my first choice).

    But in WinXP (sp2), I get this error message: Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled ad nauseum with no effect, in regular and safe mode. I have tried to do system restore to at least a dozen points, but no system restore will take (and now I seem to have lost all my system restore points).

    Cannot find driver on the web to try and reinstall.

    Any advice or recommendations?
