Write Protected DVDs?

I have an Acer Aspire laptop and am using Windows Vista-Home edition. I get a ''write-protected'' message when I try to format Philips DVD-R / 4.7 GB DVD's. Why? CDs are no problem!

First of all, you need to make sure you can write to a DVD-R versus DVD+R. Go to your device manager and click on the DVD drive and  it should tell you what type of cds and dvds you can write to. Second, you may not need to 'format' the disk. Try just copy and pasting new documents or whatever you want to burn on the disk itself. Then just burn it. If you have a software, make sure to read all directions and follow it exactly. Let me know how this goes!

BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:

I'm repairing laptops for eight years and this problem has something to do either with the HDD or your RAM. If you have two modules of RAM try either of the two if it will pose the same problem. If not definitely the culprit is your HDD. It doesn't matter if it is brand new that it will work perfectly. They are transported and we don't know how they were handled.

I have installed windows 7 operating system on my acer aspire 5515 laptop,but i do have a video graphics problem can any body help me to find VGA driver for it??


Unfortunately, Acer does not offer Windows 7 support for your laptop. Therefore, you won't be able to download a video driver specifically designed for Windows 7. However, you can try using the Vista driver (usually those drivers are compatible with both Vista and 7). You can download the driver from the Acer official website.

Can't perform acer aspire recovery management to my acer aspire 4730Z laptop


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Are you currently running Windows XP or Vista?

If running windows Vista, press F11 at startup, before the flashscreen appears. This will prompt the laptop into a factory restore mode.

If using Windows XP, you will need the restore disks. Most manufacturer's do not provide these with the purchase of the laptop but you can obtain a copy from the by calling their support or visiting their website. I believe the require shipping charges but do not charge for the software.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Acer aspire 4315 note book


Hi,

I am assuming that you downgraded to Windows XP. For the WinXP sound driver of a Realtek Audio as used in an Acer Aspire 4315, pls try (ftp://202.65.194.212/pc/audio/WDM_A405.exe). Should you still want the Vista driver, pls download from here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
