Happy Easter everyone! I would so appreciate it if someone here could lend a helping hand. Here's the scenario. I have a laptop that came with Win 7 Home Premium. We got that reduced price version of Win 8 awhile back. We had installed it on top of Win 7 and most everything had worked at that time except for one of the games and we really weren't sure if we liked it, so we ended up reverting back to Win 7. Well, this easter weekend we got the notion to go ahead and reinstall Win 8 back on. Thought everything had worked beautifully and we were just zipping along like happy bunnies. Then, I remembered that I had forgotten to install a software program - which came on a CD. That's when I discovered that there was supposedly a corrupted driver to the Slimtype Dvd and now..can't recognize CD's. Husband says Win 7 should go back on but alas, I don't think there is a way to make it boot from my recovery discs. I've seen all these driver updater things that say that they can find/fix drivers but I'm scared that since Win 8 thinks the driver is the best installed, and plus they cost money, and who knows if they are safe sites? Well, anyhow..you get my brief picture. Lord, I think the husband will divorce me..was up most of the night researching and have such a confused head on where to turn next. Can anyone help and what info would you need to help? I would even be willing to call anyone in the US - since we have unlimited long dist. - if someone can help. Thanks so much!!!
