CD Uninstalled

  greebo2001 12:28 06 Aug 04

I have an Emachine with a CD rewriter combi,running Windows ME.However,a while ago,it uninstalled itself.Now it doesn't recognise that I have a CD unit.It also uninstalled my webcam,printer,and scanner.When I try to connect anything to it,it freezes as soon as the cable's plugged in,and it won't let me use system restore or scandisc.Any ideas,please?

Have you tried pressing F8 at boot up and selecting safe mode and doing a system restore from their.
Also have you done a virus scan.

Assume apart from CD that others are USB devices?

Check in device manager if yellow exclamation mark on revelant devices.

if so unistall reboot and let windows refind and install then on boot up.
