Has anybody come across this error?

VAR1016
This concerns an Acer 5750 laptop, running Windows 8 (64 bit).
The hard disk is partitioned, but I cannot access Drive D; on attempting to open it I am told that the disk must be formatted, but it will not format. On investigating I found this message:
"Base System Device PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_16BE&SUBSYS_05041025&REV_10\4&2B4E00C3&0&02E0 The drivers for this device are not installed."

Can anyone advise? Thanks in advance
Paul

    stays hidden until you press the appropriate key at boot to enter recovery.
    Just my first quick thought anyhow.

    There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a

    solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll

    find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water

    Cooler'.

    you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The

    Many thanks for your reply, and apologies for posting in the wrong section.

    Incidentally, the computer tells me that drive D is in fact empty!

    Thanks again
