How do I insert CD in computer? It doesn"t seem to have an open slot.


If there is no "Open" button for the drive then normally they are opened by pushing on the DVD/CD tray itself momentarily. It only needs a short positive push and the drive tray should slide out.

My acer aspire X1200 b601a wont boot past first POST screen, ive tried reseating the CMOS, but seems to have made it worse. it contains all original parts, though take into account that it was FACTORY...


Here's what I do in a case like this:
Disconnect everything but the CPU, memory, and video (and keyboard) to see if it will boot. Many time one of your components has gone bad and will keep the system from booting. My money goes on the CD/DVD.
If it does boot, add in the hard drive and then the CD/DVD. If you have 2 sticks of memory, you can try each separately.

Acer Athlon x2 Cd drive won't recognize CD


If the PC will not recognise any CD, re boot the PC with your Windows system CD/DVD in the tray. If it reads the disk, the DVD unit is OK, you probably have a conflict somewhere in the drivers.
Go to Control panel, Device manager, double click on DVD/CD-ROM drive, select the DVD drive, doulbe click and from the menu select Driver. Select Uninstall driver and reboot your PC.
When it boots the PC will look for a new driver and place it where there is no conflict.
Hope that helps.

CD Drive not working at all


If its the only CD Drive on that IDE cable it wouldn't be set as slave, would be on Master.

Yes you can go to http://www.driverguide.com you can download updated drivers for IDE and SATA on your PC.I checked on Acer support but there website isnt't working correctly for me.

Try updating the drivers, and try both drives again one at a time.

The slot loading DVD drive does not read CD or DVD on my aspire 1694 WLMi. The e drive also does not recognise a disc in the drive. Device manager states that the drive is working properly, no new drivers...


hi,

you may have a faulty laser in your drive, the best solution will be to try and use another known good working drive in your machine, by doing this you will out find if the fault is with the drive or the the software/mother board.

hope this helps

I want to purchase a dvd burner for my aspire 3680


It is unclear to me whether your system will support a DVD burner. This is something that is influenced by the BIOS of a PC.

I found two places where your model is discussed, the first would seem to imply that the 3680 will support it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t264099-acer_aspire_3680_could_not_load_dvd

The 2nd , from: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-3680-2682-Aspire/dp/B000UHXK8C

upgradeable to 2 GB DVD-Combo optical drive CD and DVD-ROM compatibility and lets you burn up to 700 MB of data on CD-R/RWs for easy backups

doesn’t seem to indicate that it can be added.

Look at your manual to see if your machine has a flash BIOS that can be upgraded. If so, it would be wise to go to the Acer website and download the latest BIOS version before you plan on adding a DVD burner.

Recovery of 310 aspire without cd/dvd's


You have to pry the front panel of the box. Then inside the box push the black slide upwards to unlock the drive. It will then slide out of the box. You have to undo the power and data cables as well of course.
Put the screws from the old drive into the new DVD. Installation is in reverse order.
