Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
Ok, first things first. When you first turn on your system, you need to open your BIOS. Once you do that that, check to see if your dvd/cd drive is listed. If it is, then it's just a case of getting Windows to identfy, if it's not listed in your BIOS, then it's a hardware fault, as Windows won't identfy anything that's not listed. Let me know either way, as I may have a solution if it just needs to be identified.

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
