"Installing other playback software affects the codecs Acer Arcade needs to playback the disc properly. I suggest you reinstall Arcade and see if the playback in Arcade clears up. Here are the steps to do this:

To restore a driver or application that was preinstalled on your computer from the factory, you need to run Acer eRecovery, here are the steps:
1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program.

Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.

2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.

3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers

4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose driver or applications.
7. In the list choose the item you wish to install
8. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
9. The system may restart when installation is complete

Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary. "

I've got aspire z5801 .looking for a manual and softwhere to work the bluray.it works on normal DVDs but not bluray do I need software


Did the Blu-Ray drive come with a manual or drivers?
Normally, you need software (Nero, etc.) to burn DVDs. What are you using to access DVD drive successfully? What error message(s) are you getting?
Thanks,
Make a great day!

My acer aspire 3680 drivers we mistakenly deleted when my laptop was reformatted


You can retrieve these from the Acer website and burn them to disk on a different computer.
Hope that reformat is what you really wanted, it'll be a while before you get everything back in place.

Navigate Start -> Control Panel -> Mouse

Then mouse properties window will be open.
Click on device setting.
Your TouchPad will be listed under Devices, be sure that its Enabled/Yes, if its not enabled click on Enable button bellow to the device list.

Note: If your TouchPad is not listed in Devices list, then you have to install driver for the touch pad. For driver please search Acer website.
