    From the looks of things, they're not gone, your computer just decided to take a driver dump. It's showing the devices as connected. It even recognizes what they are. Just reload your drivers and you should be fine.

    The best way is probably right click on them, click uninstall. Restart the computer, Windows Add New Hardware wizard should prompt, it should install the drivers automatically. If it fails you'll need to go to your Manf's site and download the drivers manually from there.

    This is cause by filters in the registry.

    I hope the reformating will work. I did that once when I got lock out of my computer by an antivirus program. The only drive that wasn't erase was the D drive, but the C drive was reformated. I guess that is because I brought the D drive separately and had it install. That is why when I am preparing to reformat my computer, I always make sure I have a copy of file on my D drive until it is time to reformat my computer. Maybe that will help, I don't know.
