Make sure the DVD drive is set as the 1st bootable drive in the bios, exit and SAVE from the bios.
Make sure the disk is clean and unscratched. Try it again, pressing a key when it asks.
If this still does not work, try the disk in another PC if possible. If this will not boot the other computer into the instalation process. Your disk may be damaged

DVD/CD-ROM drive missing


Problem with missing dvd-drive with Acer 5101 solved.
Problem was that depending on boot, even bios couldn?t detect dvd-drive. I
opened my laptop and found out that there were one small screw that wasn?t
connected to anywhere. I opened the screw that locks dvd-drive in to 2.5? slot. In the back of the
dvd-drive is L- shaped peace of metal. One of it?s screws were already dropped
and 2 that were left were loose. I tightened those screws, but drive back and
got my laptop working fine.

Will CD-RW drive play video or do I need CD-Rom? (Gulp) Cost ?


MAIN QUESTION.
NO sorry to tell you you need at least a dvd drive to play dvd's DVD - R/RW to burn onto a DVD disc but you are lucky, external DVD drives are relatively cheap now days, just look around online or at walmart my estimate is that you wont pay more than 200 for a dvd-rw drive (external) as far as the value of the computer you are getting i would say currently $200 to a max of $400 value if you were going to sell it and thats asking high. if you didnt pay more tha that then you are ok IF you did i would be asking for your money back as you can go to walmart and get 3 times the computer for 300 bucks. if you need to know more just shoot me an e-mail at tonyw514@yahoo.com just let me know in the subject that your real.

Acer Aspire 5100 no longer "sees" its cd/dvd drive- anywhere.


You can check the BIOS to see if the drive is recognized and even attempt to boot from the drive using a bootable CD to verify it is functional (if using the Windows disc - just verify it reads - DO NOT REINSTALL)

If the drive works use the following to get the drive back in Windows:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

No dvd being read in my acer 4520 laptop


Since on a laptop the laser lens is right in the open with the drive open, it's easy to get it dirty. Try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and see if discs read.

It's also possible you have a bad drive. Like any other electronic device, it is possible for a drive to "just quit working" properly. The problem with laptop drives is that they aren't all alike, so you can't just pick up and install a generic replacement like you could on a desktop machine. The easiest solution to a bad internal drive is to get a USB external drive, which has the benefit that you can use it on other computers as well.

Hope this helps!
