    Hello,

    i have the aspire 4520 and so far except for some minor problems like the jumping cursor and bad sound everything's fine. however, i do notice that the cd drive or maybe the software(?) seem to have a problem. i hardly use it coz either the media player would suddenly freeze or it will have an error message. today, while watching a dvd it suddenly froze and then the cd drive wont respond anymore. it wont even open so that i could at least take out the cd! does anyone have any idea what's wrong? im not techie so can somebody help me. thanks!

You will need to install chipset driver but it will be much better if you reinstall all driver for it.

Acer Aspire 4520 driver for windows xp can be downloaded here :

How do I open my dvd drive on my laptop?


If you are using Windows on your computer go to the "My Computer" or "This PC" folder where you can see all removable disks and drives. If you are using a newer version of Windows, this should be a folder icon on the bottom of your desktop.
Once you have reached this folder, right click on the drive that appears to be a disk. Select "Eject"

Boot Acer 3100 Aspire. Shows NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart. Will just go to the same screen over and over.Will not boot at all. Do not have a boot disk.


Remove any 3.5" diskette from the A: drive.
Remove any CD from the CD/DVD drive.
Reboot.

If you still have the problem, then borrow a Windows XP disk.
Boot from it. Choose "repair", not "install".

If the disk-drive is "detected", then "repair" will attempt to fix any file-system errors.

If *NO* disk-drive is detected, your disk-drive has "died".

Acer Travelmate 290 DVD drive quit working. Trying to find a replacement - no luck


I found this drive on Ebay just doing a search:

http://cgi.ebay.com/SD-R6112-DRW-SD-R6112-MS-OEM_W0QQitemZ180382772836QQcmdZViewItem

The model of your dvd drive in your system is SD-R6112 and its the same drive thats used in the Toshiba laptops. The only thing you might have to do is to swap out the front bezel and also the metal piece in the back of the drive but this drive would work in your laptop.

I cant play a disc or DVD


Hello,

Please try to reboot your laptop then go to CMOS Settings and detect the CD/DVD Rom and try to see if it is detected by your system. If it is detect ted then exit CMOS Settings and then load the Operating system you have and ope the DVD/CD Rom you have. But if it does not detect the DVD/CD Rom then i advice you to find a computer technician to help you fix the problem cause hardware problem is the main reason why it does not detect the disk drive you have, its either the connection bus is not properly plug or the Disk drive is damage or not functioning well.

Thanks

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.

Cd drive viewing in computer does not work


well it seems that your system is not able to detect the cd in the system so you must get the lense cleaner to clean the lense of the computer.

My Acer Extensa 5620Z DVD-ROM Driver wont open or operate


#1
first go to your system tray and click on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon
** if it's not there you can skip this step
click on the icon and stop your dvd/cd drive

#2
There is an eject button on the side of your drive. not the disk eject button. this button will eject your drive from the computer. it should be on the right side of the drive. push this button and remove your drive.

#3
Inspect the drive for signs of damage.
Give it a few blows of air to knock any dust off it

#4
Reinsert the drive into your computer
After you do that Windows should recognize there is a drive there and little bubbles should pop up from your system tray. give it a minute to finish.

#5
Insert a disk and check to see if it is working properly


IF windows didnt recognize it and/or it still has no power, you most likely will have to replace your drive. but let me know what happened after you do this

Laptop trouble


There is a problem with your DVD drive, then. I think it is unable to detect because there is dirt on the delicate little lens or some other problem.

Clean the lens with a cheaply available lens cleaning disc a special anti-static cloth made for these purposes.

Or see if the PC itself detects the drive. If it doesn't, restore the system to the time when it was all okay. Use System Restore.

If nothing works, show it to a doctor, and maybe you have to change it.
