    It says...
    "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

    Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available."

    The same thing happened to me on my Gateway laptop, but I have Optiarc AD-7563A. I resolved this issue by contacting Gateway live chat support. They told me the following: open regedit (Registry Editor) and navigate to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and to delete values UpperFilter and/or LowerFilter. I then rebooted and problem solved. The long string of letters and numbers will probably be different for your Optiarc model. I suggest contacting your computer manufacturer and trying to get live chat support. Let me know how it works out.
