Tried This?

It works for many:

But remember, if you have a Recovery Disc for your current computer, it's possible you can find the preinstalled software that came with your computer.

Hope thi shelps.

Thanks for trying to help, but it seems my driver and all trace of the drive are gone. i'm gonna try the OS disk as the driver disk won't even read! This could end my poor, limping along laptop!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
