Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook ?

Hi, I'm having a problem with the cd/dvd drive in my Dell e-1705 laptop. Here is the error message I get when checking the drive from the device manager: 'Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged.' (Code 19) Any idea what's causing this and what do I need to do to resolve the problem? I am running Windows Vista Home Basic with SP1. thanks, Arthur
