    We have had the same problem. Even had the CD/DVD drive replaced. Now with the new one, it has happened again. Managed to get it out by going to Explorer and right clicking on the Drive and selecting "Eject". It definitely catches on something as it comes out. Not confident it will come out next time. Perhaps this is a hardware problem.

    Same problem. I have tried right clicking "Eject" from the "My Computer" list of the device, pushing the button, selecting "Eject" from the menu - nothing has worked and there is no little hole for the folded out paper clip!

If you look on the door of your cd drive next to the button you push to eject the cd there is a small hole.  This is essentially the ememrgency release.  Unfold a paper clip and push it straight into the hole.  Once it releases you will feel the paperclip pushing down on a button.  you will feel and hear the drawer release.

The L3600 doesn't have an emergency hole so you need to disassemble the cover. MAKE SURE IT'S UNPLUGGED FROM THE AC POWER BEFORE GOING FURTHER! I would only suggest this if your warranty has run out. Remove the screw at the back under the warranty label then slide the top cover backwards and remove it. You will see 3 strap type black plastic catches towards the front of the computer, lift each one to unclip the front then lay it forward (it will still be attached by a cable, leave it connected). You should then see a metal catch under the CD/DVD Drive, lift it then slide the CD/DVD player out of it's housing, remove the Ribbon Cable at the back but make sure you know how to reconnect it. Remove the 3 small screws from the top and the two on the side holding the metal cover on top of the Drive then take the cover off, you should now be able to lift out the CD. Do the reverse of the above to reassemble your computer and there you go.

I am wanting to change my broadband connection to a wireless connection to use with multiple connections. Does the Aspire L3600 have what is needed for a wireless connection? I can't find any details.


The Acer Aspire L3600 only comes with a wired network option in the original basic configuration. Some models had an added WLAN card filling the mini-card slot. The best way to check if the WLAN card is in your computer is to check the Device Manager. In Windows Vista, Click Start > Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager (except in the Classic view of the Control Panel). For the Classic View there is a direct link to the Device Manager on the Control Panel. For XP, it's Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Device Manager (in Classic View, just skip the Performance and Maintenance step). If you upgraded to Win7, Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers > Device Manager. Scroll down the list to find any Wireless drivers that are installed.

(If you have one of the machines with Unix, check the specific documents. My Unix experience has always been wired.)

The Aspire L3600 specs are available here: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireL3600/AspireL3600sp2.shtml .

I hope this helps.

I want to get driver tv tuner for acer aspire l3600


It's a problem for us to assume since you didn't mention the Operating System installed on the Acer Aspire... moreover there are two types of tv tuner card that comes with this model. I hope you'll not mind letting us know all these next time so that we can help you better.

If the operating system install on your system is Windows 7 the click the below links to download

Acer Aspire L3600 Connexant Tv Tuner driver for windows 7

Acer Aspire L3600 Yuan Tv Tuner driver for windows 7
Once you click the link, download will automatically begin. You'll need winrar or winzip to extract the files. Extract the files and run the setup or as per your convenience.

Acer Aspire L3600 Yuan Tv Tuner driver for windows vista

Currently, there's no drivers available for windows xp but you can still run it by using the "Device Manager" > "Update Drivers" wizard after extracting the windows vista drivers.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi

I'm not sure, please open the computer case and see if there is a free pci slot.

Note that opening the computer might void warranty.

Also, you would do fine with a USB Wifi adapter. cost around the same if not cheaper.

Thanks and good luck,
let me know if you need anything else.

Try to remove it under device manager and restart the laptop. If the same problem occurs, the driver for the CD rom isn't installed yet. Better call the Acer tech support for possible part replacement.
