2. Select Notebook-->Extensa-->Extensa 5620 (your Computer Model) 3.Now select the Operating System from the drop down box and download and install the Drivers. 4. If the Camera Driver is not available for download for Windows 7, then select the Windows Vista same version Driver and install. the Driver should be installed in the Computer as the Windows Vista Drivers should work with Windows 7 OS.
you are probably running xp go to help and type in find new hardware sounds like somehow your drive got deleted in the hardware and device manager this will work with vista too unless the drive went bad naturally
I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!
i am not an expert but i remember when my computer wasnt working and wouldnt install the recovery the dell people told me to put the computer into safe mode. try that.
if you dont know u hold down the power button untill the screen is blank. then when you turn on the power you will see 2 buttons or 3. one is start windows normaly, another is start windows in safe mode
If this is the DVD drive that was originally installed in this machine you should be able to go into device manager and update the drivers for the dvd-rom. The drivers should be located the driver cd's that came with the laptop.
