Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

Acer eLock Management Password

"Have had my computer for nearly two years and just recently have been getting this message

Optical Drive Device Locked
Acer e lock activated.

Feeling a bit of a failure as I don`t know how to get rid of this or sort it out and now my cd is not working ( access denied).


You commented that you had a workaround or fix for this. I am trying to resolve this same problem on my niece's computer and I would appreciate any help that you could offer.

thanks, kmaples@comcast.net

Acer e lock activated??????????????


I've researched this and it appears simply uninstalling the elock software may resolve it - if this is not a feature you require.
Since it is an Acer specific issue you may contact the manufacturer for assistance while it is under warranty.
