System Won't Restore

My XP Home system has been damaged by a faulty install/uninstall procedure. I want to go back a few days or even a week, but System Resore won't work in either normal or safe mode Keeps saying "Restore Incomplete - try a different resore point".

What can cause System Restore to refuse to work ?

I have consulted the Microsoft Knowledge Base without success.

Insert your windows CD and run: SFC /scanow this will repair any damaged files.

I can't put in the Windows CD because the CD drives have stopped working. Device manager says the drivers are damaged or missing.

Is there any others ource for the CD drivers ?
