Hi you should be able to do the following, if not you will need an external CD drive & recovery disk.
1. Consider what data you still need from your Acer Aspire One's hard drive. Save the files to an external USB device.
2. Restart the Acer Aspire One's operating system. Wait for the Acer logo to appear on the LCD screen.
3. Press the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time to bring up the recovery menu. Press "Enter."
4. Click "Next." Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to restore the operating system back to factory settings.
5. Use the drop-down boxes to select the time zone and language information for your Acer Aspire One. Restart the netbook when you are prompted to finish restoring the computer.
6. Connect the external USB device to your Acer Aspire One and transfer the data you saved earlier back to the netbook.
Warning: It is possible to delete the hard drive partition that has the recovery tool.
If your Acer Aspire One no longer has the recovery partition, you will need to acquire an external USB DVD drive and then contact Acer for a recovery DVD. Connect the USB drive to the netbook's USB port and then insert the recovery DVD in the drive.
This means you should install an Operating System. If your notebook doesn't have a dvd drive you can install the Operating System with an external drive (dvd, USB flash drive or hard drive). and press F12 when it starts to select the booting device. Follow the link below to find out how to create a USB flash drive bootable (also works on hard drives): http://forum.bstdownload.com/how/55-how-create-bootable-usb-stick-when-using-windows-vista-windows-7-a.html
Plug in a Memory Card, in the Card Reader, then Right-Click on My Computer Icon, Click on Manage, Then go to Disk Management, If you can find the Memory card Detected there but without a drive letter, then right-click on it and Give it a distinct(New) Drive letter and apply, but if it already has a drive letter assigned, then change it to a new one...i.e, assign to it a new Drive letter.
I would try stopping the device and restarting it first.
If that doesn't work, find the latest drivers for it, and have them in a folder you can find easily. In device manager, you can right click, go into properties for the DVD-ROM. Click the update drivers button, and point it to that directory.
If neither of those work ,try completely uninstalling it from device manager, then going through the add new hardware option in control panel.
Is the DVD drive listed in device manager under CD/DVD drives at all? If so, remove it and reboot. Windows might be able to re-detect and reinstall the drivers for it, but odds are the drive is bad. You can try removing the drive from the computer, and use compressed air to blow out the area where it connects to the laptop. Also check the connection on the DVD drive to make sure there isn't any physical damage, bent pins, etc.
Download the latest driver for dvd rom from Acer that will work with Vista SP1. Also try uninstalling the device in device manager and restart your computer. Vista may find "new hardware" and install the driver from its driver pack in SP1.
