Does the CD player show in My Computer?

If it does then go to device manager (Winkey + pause and select hardware and device manager)

Find the CD player, right click and select uninstall.

when done reboot the laptop and let Windows find and install it

If it still does not work then most likely it is dead. Most replacements will fit, just need to be fitted into the outer casing of old one. Bezels may be different but they can be gently eased off and all later ones use the same fitting tags

Good luck

System reboot


Depending on what bios it has it may not show the cd drive. All you can do is set it to auto or if it has the option to cd or atapi. Then set the boot order so that the cd is looked at before the hard drive and you should then boot off of the cd.

My DVD drive in ACER Aspire 4720 not reading burnt DVDs and CDs


well look for cds that are thicker and sturdier. some low cost CDRs are too thin and/or soft that they cant handle the heat generated by the cd drive.
