Hi i bought my laptop a couple of weeks ago. And now for somea reason i cant see my CD/DVD drive when i click on My Computer and when i insert a cd or dvd it wont boot up. I went into device manager and under the cd/dvd drive it says

"Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

I am running windows 7.

I am going to take this back to pc world tomorrow if i cant fix it, but thoughy i would try mself first before i drive up.

Thank You

Only guessing, but have you run all your Anti-everything programs as a precaution?

Try this if the optical drives are not appearing in My Computer or Device Manager.
(This is sometimes caused by the removal of Roxio or other writing software.)
