Aspire 3050 laptop

Hi,
The dvd -rom got stuck and would not go back into the laptop. I finally work it back in and now it will not read any disc, dvd light will not flash green and it will not eject any more.

Can you tell how to remove the rom to replace with another one if it is possible?

Thank You

I've taken a lot of drives out of laptops and usually they are easy to remove and just have a button you need to press to pop them out or they are held with a single screw underneath around the center back of the drive. Those two possibilities should have you covered, and I have rarely found optical drives to be difficult to remove from laptops.

Acer aspire 9300 dvd reads but does'nt write


Probably check it well if it is a DVD read and write ROM if its the DVD read and write then try to check on another disc if that disc you want to write on is bad and if that persist then may be the lens of the DVD is weak to write on CD then you will have to look for a replacement ok

Boot Disc's Not reading, Dvd rom help? or Xp/vista help?


How did you made it boot to the disc? if you used keystrokes to do so, it would be better if you go into your BIOS and set the boot priority making the dvd drive as priority and see if it is gonna work that way. If it does'nt you need to be concerned about the drive itself, it might be having problems as well.

Dvd rom not reading discs


did you clean the optical lens? if you do so, then you've got same problem,my suggestion is, you just purchase a new dvd rom drive, because your dvd has optical lens problem. it happened to me a long time ago with my client, what i did i open the laptop then i changed it with a brand new dvd rom drive. If you are going to repair that dvd it is not advisable, it might be back when the same problem.

DVD Rom isn't reading discs


Hi, Only two things you can try: 1. Use a CD cleaner. Hopefully it's just a speck of dust covering the lens making it unable to read discs; 2. If that doesn't work, your best bet perhaps is to return the unit. Trying to open the DVD unit of the laptop will void any warranty you may have. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
