    It's best not to keep reposting; your previous message was here:
    http://www.fixya.com/support/t1499202-sc...

    The person trying to help you then suggested you try experimenting with the screen size setting. Did you do so? Was there any change? That is, say you're at 1024x768 now, 24-bit color. Try 16-bit color. Try 800x600. Does the amount of screen showing change at all?

Acer extensa 4630z I am trying to reboot Vista but I cannot get to the proper screen. I can get no further than Edit Windows boot options for: Microsoft Windows Vista


You may have to get a CD/DVD of Vista from your friend or associate for reinstallation of the operating system. If you go to Windows 7 or 8.1 you would be better off than waste time with Vista and all of its problems. If the CD Drive is not working, get an External USB CD/VDV drive from WalMart. They are not expensive and they come in handy at times. Plug the external CD/DVD into a USB port and start up the computer seeking the new device. Run the Software the same as you would from your unstable device.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs


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!

Play/open dvd


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.
