My cd-rom has stopped working on my laptop. It has an exclamation point over
the driver, and says windows cannot load the device driver. (code 39). I
cannot load the driver again from the recovery disk because the cd rom does
not work! any help would be greatly appreciated

These ALL apply to your problem, try the middle one first. Even though
the KB articles mention XP the Vista fix is same.

The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected after you upgrade a computer to Windows Vista

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/929461

You can no longer access the CD drive or the DVD drive, or you receive an error message after

you remove a CD recording program or a DVD recording program in Windows XP: "error code 31"

When you insert a CD or a DVD, Windows Vista may not recognize the disc

You may find drivers on the manufacturer's website, can you get to the
internet with the laptop and download from there? There may well be
other issues here, did this just suddenly happen, did you just install
anything, what else can you tell us about the machine, the operating
system and any recent events that might be related?

WHAT is a "great solution"?

Posted and mailed

To whom are you talking and about what?
The "forum" that you are posting in leaches off the Microsoft News servers
in order to make it look far busier than it really is. Everyone who uses the
MS News servers sees your post on it's own - we have NO IDEA what you are
talking about and to whom you are talking.

This is not your fault - the fault lies with the forum owners who do not
explain to members that their posts end up on global Usenet newsgroups.
If you MUST continue to post in this "forum" then please at least quote the
post you are replying to, and do NOT change the subject line.

You would be far better off however, using a news reader and subscribing to
these news groups direct.
