    I'm having the same problem with my sister's Acer Aspire 5535.
    Plays Audio CD's with no problems. Plays sounds from websites, and general windows sounds. No sound on any DVD.

You need to play DVDs through Acer Arcade. To do this you can turn off autoplay (use help function), or assign Acer Arcade to automatically play DVDs. If you still want to use Windows Media Player to play your DVDs you must uninstall Acer Arcade.

When playing a disc on my computer I get the picture but no sound

Obviously first check that your computer is producing sound. Second check that if you play the disc in another device that there is sound on the disc. This will tell you if the problem is on your computer or on the recording.

Acer aspire 5536 dvd drive just stopped working. It shows as an error in device manager and doesn't show in my computer. Checked and the driver is up to date. Am using vista.

Check the Acer web site. It's possible there might be a firmware update for the dvd drive.

Have you tried uninstalling it from device manager and then go to the action tab and scan for hardware changes?

Hope this helps.

2.Install the software .
3.Restart The laptop then check the modem .it would surely work.
The cause for not playing maybe of the copyright problems,

Acer laptop dial up modem keeps droping conection

Who is your ISP?

If the thing works, I am not so sure your hardware is to blame, typically a hardware issue is at fault when it does NOT work, not when it 'sort of' works.

Intermittant issues are the exception to the rule, typically.

This could very well be the fault of your ISP.

Are you the only person using the line? Could someone be picking up the phone and dropping your connection?

If you post the type of Acer laptop you have and the type of modem this might help as well.

There is a freeware program called 'Everest Home Edition' that will help you determine your drivers and your hardware.

Hopefully this helps...

I found this:

I've never tried it, so I would be interested to hear if it works for you.

Also, if the computer does not boot from the CD you'll need to go into the BIOS and make the CD a bootable device.

Good luck.
