#1
first go to your system tray and click on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon
** if it's not there you can skip this step
click on the icon and stop your dvd/cd drive

#2
There is an eject button on the side of your drive. not the disk eject button. this button will eject your drive from the computer. it should be on the right side of the drive. push this button and remove your drive.

#3
Inspect the drive for signs of damage.
Give it a few blows of air to knock any dust off it

#4
Reinsert the drive into your computer
After you do that Windows should recognize there is a drive there and little bubbles should pop up from your system tray. give it a minute to finish.

#5
Insert a disk and check to see if it is working properly


IF windows didnt recognize it and/or it still has no power, you most likely will have to replace your drive. but let me know what happened after you do this

My acer extensa 5620z got knocked off the chair and since then it wont come on properely. The screen says media test failure, check cable, then operating system not found.


The fall likely dislocated the hard drive. If you are comfortable working on your laptop yourself (you may void the warantee, if any), you will need to locate the panel on the bottom that covers the hard drive. It may be labelled HDD. Open it and 'reseat' the hard drive. Reseat means essentially to unplug and plug back in. Put the panel back on and give it a try. Touch something metal that is grounded before opening it up to discharge any static built up on you before digging in.

How do I completely restore my extensa 5620Z to factory settings? I want all files deleted completely. Thank you


If you place your restore disc in the DVD/CD Rom drive and boot from it, choose format drive when given the choice. That will remove all files and place the system on that was set when you bough it.

My acer Extensa 5620Z DVD/CD ROM drive is detected as USB mass storage that provides internet(Modem). When I remove the internet modem, the CD ROM is not listed in My computer. When I put CD or DVD in it...


That is a Vista problem with ACER. Delete the reference in device manager and restart and let the comp reco0gnize and reinstall ...just follow the screen instructions.

There is a registry setting that needs deleting but only if this doesn't work.

Problem withe acer extensa 5620z lap top


You can edit the boot.ini
OR
go to control panel, double click on "system"
it will open system window. go to "Advance" tabs and
under startup and recovery there is a button "setting" click on that button.
it open startup and recovery windows.
if you click on edit, it will open notepad to edit boot.ini, if you arenot sure don't edit, just select the operating system that is working and change the time to 0 seconds. once you boot it will go to your windows directly without any option to choose which windows.
