Here's the problem. My laptop no longer recognizes my cd and dvd drives. When I check Device Manager I have the dreaded yellow exclamation marks informing me I have corrupt drivers. I have uninstalled the devices and plug and play recognizes them on reboot but just reloads the corrupt drivers. I would reinstall XP but the computer cannot recognnize my drives to put the disc in. Catch 22.
I have considered a USB external drive. Does anyone know if I would or would not be able to reinstall with an external USB CD/DVD drice?
Any advice much appreciated.
O yeah I've tried a reset point, but I get a message that the computer cannot reset.
Also, Roxio CD Creater uinstall is the suspected culprit as to why the drives dissapeard
