Did you uninstall some software recently?  Check for the presence of UpperFilters or LowerFilters in your registry:

I would uninstall the IDE device driver in device manager and reinstall it, as a first attempt.

It may be a bad cd rom or a bad cable so if you can change them that would be good.
If that dosent fix if go to the device manager and see if there any any device conflicts if there are then reinstall them then as Call said reinstall motherboard drivers I would say its a bad cd rom.

Good Luck
