Hi the first thing you should do is go to a computer hard ware store and buy a lense cleaning cd or dvd or buy one of the well known auction site.
if after doing that it still dont work then this would suggest the dvd drive has packed up and will need replacing. you can also buy these but you will need to remove the keypads to get the old drive out. if you have not dont this before then its best if you leave it to someone who does.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page or unrated posts, thanks
The only thing you missed is if you have only 2 slots to put memory sticks it means that if you want to put 4 Gb of ram you need to buy 2 sticks of 2 Gb each, you have no other choice. you can't add memory but only change the existing ones.
as for aspire products, that would be part of the aspire 5000 series.
if your processor is getting that hot often its probably overheating. theres probably some dust bunnies in the fan or the fan pipes. try dusting it out and see if that solves the problems. you generally shouldnt have to alter the fan speeds at all because they are temperature controlled.
try resetting the bios to defaults if some how the fan settings were changed to funny values. it should definately be kicking in sooner than that.
The Aspire 5000 actually has a 128mb video card. i am using one right now as a matter of fact. Reboot your acer. when you see the acer logo. press F2 once into the bios screen move to the next tab. High light the 64mb next to the video adaptor and high light 128mb.
The driver for the cd rom is built into windows. If the cd rom is saying all cd loaded are blank then you have a damaged cd room. You will need to buy a cd rom lens cleaner to make sure the lens is clear of dust
