You will need to buy a new CD drive for your laptop. They are fairly easy to install. If you want help finding a CD drive, please reply with your exact model number (i.e. Travelmate 2410, Travelmate 2420, etc). If you need help installing the CD drive, please ask.

    I need the exact model number of your laptop to help you find a CD drive.

    It should be written somewhere on the laptop. It will say Travelmate 2410 or something similar.

    This might be an easier way to find the drive: please remove the CD drive and look for the model number on the CD drive.

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.

Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    Acer Travelmate 2300 memory all used

    Disk space is not RAM.
    RAM is a memory where operating system and software keeps their current state.
    All disk space used is a message about the harddrive on your laptop.
    You will have to buy bigger harddrive and change it (you will have to move or reinstall system) or buy an external USB harddrive and move some data onto it keeping the original system in place.

    If you didn't yet then upgrade to SP2.

    Update drivers for all hardware, in most cases this is a driver conflict.

    If that didn't solve the problem then scan for viruses with AVG.
    Scan for malware with Anti Malware.
    Scan for broken registry entires with Registry Mechanic.
    Let all 3 software repair/remove the errs they find.

    If the problem is still not solved then reseat the memory stick to another slot, since 7E with nt status code c0000005 (access violation) could be caused by faulty RAM. Clean the dust inside the PC.

    If it still crashes, downclock the RAM.

    If it does not resolve the problem, replace the RAM.

    .exe files got corrupted

    well, if the CD won't read in Windows, and this is due to a virus, it should not affect the drives functionality before windows loads. You will need to use a bootable CD (like the Windows CD) and when you power on hte computer, enter the boot menu (check bottom of screen during power up for the correct button.) then select CD ROM and see if it will boot to Windows Set up. If it will, exit setup, restart windows, back up your data to a jump drive and then reboot with the CD & boot menu selection, and reload windows. Before you do any of this, go to acer's website and download all of the drivers for your computer to a jump drive, you will need them for the windows reinstall
