Acer Aspire 7741Z missing CD ROM drivers. Motherboard issue, maybe?


Usually, if the motherboard (meaning BIOS here) goes bad, you will lose all access to all drives. Since the CD-ROM and Recovery partitions have been targeted here, I would say you should be looking hard for a nasty virus or bot. They often attack by blinding your antivirus software, then they disable the CD-ROM (where you would reload from) and the recovery partition (same thing). This keeps them alive longer while you try to figure out what's wrong. I'm not saying that it COULDN'T be hardware or OS related, but first I'd run Malwarebytes or a third party A/V program to be sure that nothing else is wrong first.

Cd rom drive door keeps opening up when in, it won't start cd


Try to this. Start - Right Click My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device
Manager - CDROM - Properties - Disable. See if it Stops then enable it again.
Look at cdrom button it might obstructed or pressed in, try pulling and pressing. Or it could be a program/driver problem. Try restoring your pc the day before it happen.

Hello the fan of the northbridge of my MS 7125 does not rotate, and when i boot up it lock down on Loading screen


HI. This issue with the NB fan will be a direct result of fan failure. The actual fan motor assembly may be shorted or disabled. This fan should be replaced asap(make sure to check the fan connector for proper connection before replacing the NB fan). Now, concerning your halted boot screen; This will be a direct result of a failed or corrupted OS(Operating System). I would recommend to initiate a system restore by inserting the restoration CD/DVDROM that came with the CPU system, when purchased or delivered. This will totally reinstall the OS and correct all corrupted files that have been affected by this unfortunate virus/worm attack.

Due to the fact that your system will not boot up, you will need to insert the restoration CD/DVDROM into its respective ROM device and shutdown the unit for five minutes. Once the shutdown has occurred, simply, restart your unit and follow the restoration instructions on screen during the hard boot. It may be necessary to self initiate the restoration by booting from the actual ROM device, via f11 or f9 command upon boot screen.

L have the cd but it will not download on my comptuer


If you have any other camera software, make sure you un-install it.

Place the disk in the Cd-rom. Open "my computer" and double click on the cd-rom drive that contains the disk. Double click on setup.exe.

This software takes approximately 15 minutes to install. Once installed, reboot the computer.

If you are still having problems; disable firewall and anti-virus before you install. After installation, enable the firewall and anti-virus and answer yes to any incoming/outgoing signals that your firewall tries to block.

Cd dvd rom not working it says driver missing or corupted so i uninstalled it to allow vista to reload but still no luck keeping getting same message


I had a similar problem after a virus attack on yahoo messenger ..it affected my cd-rom driver ...and pretty much all the rest ..but first it ...I tried to reinstall but no luck ...so ...until I reinstalled the pc with a clean install I mean from the disk and formatting the C partition ...I didnt get anything ..but it worked after ...so ..this is what I suggest too ..
but first I suspect it to be disabled too ...so ..restoring factory defaults in the Bios will be a good thing too...
also you might try to look for it in the hardware manager ...and try to install it ..by downloading its driver ...and than run the wizard for installing from there ...just click update driver ...if it will be in yellow with an ask sign it means that has no driver ..
but ..reinstalling clean its still the right way ...Keep in mind that installing from a recovery stored in another partition ..might not do the job ..cause either it sees it disabled...or ..the virus that cause it ..do not dissapear ..and restores the damages..

Acer aspire 3515 reboot


Hi,

the error you are getting, is related to the computer not being able to find a logical Drive. ( Hard-Drive Or CD Rom ) this could be caused by either A Virus. Or a corruption in the operating System. ( Windows System File Et,c )
If you check your computers manual, or website or you can enter the computers Bios screen.
Look for an option to restore setup defaults or similar, and save and exit to cmos/Exit.
Also see if there are options for using system restore. ( this is where your hard-drive will contain a seperate partition ) to enable a set of backup files to be loaded and run.

If you have a wireless network connected, remove or disable, until computer has re-booted. As your system could have been taken over by a hacker or similar program/virus.

Thankyou for using Fixya.
