Make sure that your dvd is detected in bios, if it is detected then
it's windows registry issue,
try to edit the windows registry, follow the steps from microsoft link below:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

if that isnot working, 1 only option is to reload the OS.

Acer can not read cd.


If you have a CD player/recorder it will not read a DVD, but, if you have a DVD player/recorder it will read both. To make sure you've got the most up to date drivers for your CD go to Windows update and type in your cd players model number found in the Device Manager in the control panel. Sometimes these software and hardware drivers get corrupted by security updates. Thank you, Dana

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot at all


Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!

Deleted audio recording device on my acer aspire 5050


If you still have the original disks that came with the computer one of them should be labeled for device drivers and you should be able to put that in your optical drive (CD or DVD reader) and reinstall the drivers for your audio recording device. If you do not have that disk you can go to the Acer web site and down load the driver for the audio device, or try this website: http://drivers.softpedia.com/downloadTag/Acer+Aspire5050
just make sure you choose the correct operating system (Vista or XP)

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
