Has anybody come across this error?

By 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

stays hidden until you press the appropriate key at boot to enter recovery.

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
