Lost Secondary IDE Controller and DVDRW on HP Laptop

After a serious registry crash/restore I have no DVDRW drive on this HP DV4000 (DV4170) Laptop. I imagine It should have both a Primary and Secondary IDE controller listed in the Device manager? Flashed BIOS to latest P17 version, tried removing the Primary Controller in Safe Mode and rebooting, but no Secondary. :frowning:

Yeah, it doesnt sound good… :doh:
If it wasnt a lap, i would try to disconnect power from that drive, reboot, plug in and reboot again. In this case i think it calls for a good format. :sad:
