Question about Computers & Internet
I am running Vista Home Basic on an Acer Aspire AST-180. I have an Hitachi DVD RW. I have owned this PC for just over a year and have been burning DVD's without issue. All of a sudden it has stopped recognizing and disc that I insert into the drive. A lot of the time it will also lock up the PC until I eject the disc as well. Help?
That sound to me like a defective dvdrw because it can't read the dvd an try to re read and re read and lock the computer until you take it out.
+ Small screwdriver
-- Small screwdriver
Buy a new or used dvdrw for laptop, first take out the laptop battery. Locate the two screws at bottom of your laptop, take them out, whit a paper clip open the dvdrw from a small hole in front of it, pull the defective dvdrw out, if the front plastic face plate is diferent from yours you can change them using a small - screwdriver (be carefull). If you dvdrw have a smalls canals at sides in your defective dvdrw take them out and put them in the new one two, Install the new dvdrw by slowly pushing in to the dvdrw hole until it take its place, put the two screw drivers back + the battery and you shuold be on your way. Let us know. Obed
