Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I got rid of that piece of &%#$ Vista and installed XP but the dvd player wont work. Acer refuses to acknowledge the issue of Vista and it's faults so they refuse to help. Anyone got any ideas. I have a couple of customers that have the same problem!
You may need to Flash the bios with the bios.
Going from Vista to XP on Acer 5100
The acer website site for the 5100 series located here http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5100.html
You can get all the XP drivers for your 5100 series there. Bios also. If the upgraded bios does not fix it then go to control panel, system, device manager, hardware and uninstall the dvd player all together. reboot. If this does not fix it go to the dvd players web site and download a FIRMWARE UPGRADE FOR IT make SURE IT IS THE RIGHT FIRMWARE FOR YOUR DVD PLAYER. Match all numbers and letter that id your drive. Good Luck. Please rate me.
