Acer desktop lost my window vista during restoration have no back up disc it keeps shutting down


What your saying is you removed your Recovery Partition? Have you tried a Full Factory Recovery? Remove ALL media DVD, CD, USB, etc. Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in , Power on the laptop. Immediately tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys, repeatedly.

How do i get the cd drive to open on an acer aspire ax3400-b4802??? as if i wanted to put a cd in it...i can see where it goes but theres no opening?


It depends on the drive model but there is usually a 'button' on the drive door: while the unit is power up, just press it to open the cd/dvd drive bay.

Hope it helps.

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.

Acer Aspire 5100 no longer "sees" its cd/dvd drive- anywhere.


You can check the BIOS to see if the drive is recognized and even attempt to boot from the drive using a bootable CD to verify it is functional (if using the Windows disc - just verify it reads - DO NOT REINSTALL)

If the drive works use the following to get the drive back in Windows:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

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!
