Question about Computers & Internet
My dvd rom drive no longer responds. The machine had to be rebuilt a couple of weeks ago and this is the first time that I've needed it since rebuild. The driver software is up to date, but the drive ''can't start.'' The error message was #10. Any suggestions? If we have to install a new drive, where do we find instructions?
A Code 10 is an indication that there is a missing, corrupt, incompatible, etc. device driver. Since you just rebuilt the machine, I'd say the device driver may be missing. There is also a chance that one of the cables aren't completely seated. Unplug and reseat them then restart the machine. Also, verify that the drivers and software are up to date by visiting the manufacturers website (of the dvd, not Acer). From Device Manager, find your drive and right click it to choose Update Drivers.
As for installing a new one if needed, you can get complete documentation from the Acer website but it is generally no more troublesome than releasing a latch, sliding out the old one and pushing in the new one until it latches.
Let me know how that works for you.
