Hi, my name is Ken, I'm not by any stretch of the imagination a computer geek, too stupid for that.
But that doesn't stop me from delving into my registry and turning my notebook into a useless piece of junk.

OK, here's my problem, my dvd drive disappeared...searched for a clue online and found that going into the registry and deleting the upperfilters string in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} would solve the problem--initially had trouble finding the key and accidentally deleted the key in
Now my touchpad and keyboard are gone !
How do I reinstate the correct registry key and renter the upperfilter string ?

I am in Europe at the moment and nobody here seems able to understand my problem. I am desperate, using my on-screen keyboard has taken me an hour to "type" this message.

I need help.
