You will need to modify the registry on the system make sure that you have a system backup first.

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


If you venture to the registry key above by doing the following steps:

  1. Click on the start menu.
  2. If this is a Vista machine in the search box type in “regedit” without the quotation marks.
  3. Maximize the HKLM and then go ahead and browse until you reach the key listed above.
  4. In the right panel you’ll see something along the lines of “UpperFilter” and “LowerFilter” you want to click on each “filter” key and hit delete. Click yes when it asks to confirm if you wish to delete the key.
  5. Restart Windows.
  6. Let me know if this works.

CD tray broken


DVD writers are sold as complete unit, they relatively inexpensive. You can fit them yourself, with nothing more than a screw driver, if you are comfortable doing this. Most computer shops will carry stock and be happy to fit the new equipment, although there may be a charge for this.

You can get the drivers by going to the manufacturers web site. As far as the programs, most of it was nothing but bloat that clogs up your machine so you're probably better off without them.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download andinstall the drivers.

I have one cd with windows vista home premium, and i can not activate him. what can i make ?


You have to have a valid product key to activate it. The product keys usually come packaged in the box with the retail CD. If you don't have the box, then sorry but you will have to either buy another copy or find some other means to obtain a valid vista home premium license key.

Hi,

You have nothing to worry about as this is normal operations. All the computer is doing is checking drives and reading any disks that maybe in the drive.
If there is no disk in the drive the LED indicator light will still come on but should resume Windows quicker.


Regards.

Cd-rom will not work


Hello Mike,

My name is ArmyMason. IF you are getting driver requests for you CD-ROM, its because the CD_ROM Drive is broken. I would suggest taking the CD-ROM out and replacing it with a different one to verify my solution. See CD-ROMs should ask for drivers, they should automatically be detected by the Operating System, Driver request for such devices are a normal sign that the device is broken.

Thanks,
ArmyMason
