    The last time I used the cd rom drive was about 10 Dec 08 (burned music bought from Napster) the next time I tried to use it itwas not recognised and is totally missing from my system. Earlier today I went on line and bought and registered RegCure as it claimed that a fault in my registry may cause this fault - this is not the case can anyone help please.

If you lost your cd-rom drive (device) then you can buy new from pc shop, but if you lost your drivers or software then you can download latest drivers from support site http://global.acer.com/support/download.htm

How to replace dvd/cd rewriter on a acer 5100


There is one screw in the bottom of the laptop, might have a engraved icon of a disc next to it. If you look at the cd drive, imagine where the drive would end. you can take a cd and place it agains the bottom of the laptop where the cd rom drive is, the screw will be at the other end of the drive.

Well this picture will probably explain it better than a thousand words.

delete your driver for said cd rom. Then go online and find the updated driver and re-install. Usually solves things like missing cd roms and cameras, etc.

My CD-Rom drive will not work... it will not be recognized with my computer


As the computer switches on and the Acer logo is shown there should be a sequence that has to be pressed to enter the bios setup eg; F2 or F10 ,press it and go in the setup program ,on the main page it has your laptops information such as how much memory you have ,processor speed hard drive etc.
See if your CD ROM drive is listed ,also check the boot (or start up) device tab in that bios setup program to see if it's listed there with your hard drive.
If it is not listed then it has failed and will have to be relaced or has become loose and is not making correct contact(which is rare to happen ,in this case it has to be removed and reinserted again).
If it still has warranty then you should send it back.

Acer 5100 lost dvd/cd drive


Is the DVD drive listed in device manager under CD/DVD drives at all? If so, remove it and reboot. Windows might be able to re-detect and reinstall the drivers for it, but odds are the drive is bad. You can try removing the drive from the computer, and use compressed air to blow out the area where it connects to the laptop. Also check the connection on the DVD drive to make sure there isn't any physical damage, bent pins, etc.

Hope this helps - remember to rate!
