Question about Acer Aspire 3050-1733 Notebook

Acer Aspire 3620

My husband has an Acer Aspire 3620 laptop. It will not boot up if the cd/dvd tray is closed. I have checked the BIOS and made sure that it was set to boot from the hard drive and not the cd/dvd.

Any other suggestions? I can not find anyone else having the same issues so far.

Thanks
Debi

Flash the bios to the latest version (bios flash update available on the computer manufacturer's website). if this is a bios glitch, flashing the bios will solve the problem.

CD ROM DRIVER


Optical drives (cd/dvd) for the most part don't requires drivers in the sense other hardware does. That's why they work during boot.

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

According to Acer's specifications for this particular notebook, the boot options do not allow for booting from external media, whether disks or thumb drives. The only options are local drive, cdrom/dvd, floppy devices and network boot. You can see for yourself here:

Also, Acer does not have an upgraded BIOS for this particular model. I'm sorry if it's not the news you were looking for.

Cd/dvd tray won't open, no response from button to open


Follow this solution below, or use a paperclip inserted into the tray hole and it will open for a temporary measure, or go to your drive in my computer, right click and select eject and see if it will open. Try also uninstaling your dvd in system properties, by right clicking and select delete, then restart pc to see if it's found again, but when the pc boots it should check the drive, you will notice the light on front of dvd light up, if not there is no power or the dvd is dead.
