    I have a yellow exclamation point on my device driver for the DVD. Its saying the driver is either missing or corrupted. I tried updating the chipset driver but it did not help.

    Does the CD/DVD Drive appear in My Computer? Is this XP or Vista?

    Go to Control Panel, click classic view on left hand side, then double click system. At the top of the box that opens, click the Hardware Tab. Then click the Device Manager button. Click the + sign beside DVD / CD-ROMS. Is the CD/DVD drive listed there? Is there an Exclamation point on it?

    Right-click on the Drive if it is listed and then click properties. In the box that opens, does it tell you the device is working properly or is there an Error Code?

You can try uninstalling your drive and then reboot so that when you turn it back it will go thru the found new hardware wizard. if that doesn't work you will probably have to find the drivers for it from the manufactures website hope this helps

I need to install the cd/dvd drive on my acer aspire 5315 notebook

Drivers for acer computers:

Simply select your specific model and the required driver for the CD/DVD drive.

More information about what type of CD/DVD drive you have could also be useful for a better solution.

Another suggestion would be to temporarily remove the CD drive, this can often be done with one screw on the bottom of your laptop next to an imprint of a small CD.

This site also had some helpful information about your particular model, seems to be a common problem.

This of course is assuming you're still running the stock OS, and hardware on the machine.

Acer aspire 5315 notebook i put a new hardrive in my computer what do i do next to get it working afriend tried to down load windows7 but nothing is happening

Hello John,

Please confirm whether this new Hard drive is a secondary Harddrive, or this is the Primary (only) HARDDRIVE.
If it is secondary then it should work automatically as soon as you connected it through the USB Channel.
If it is primary, then after connecting the HDD, You need to put the Auto installable CD/DVD of windows 7 in the CD rom. It should detect the CD/DVD and startinstalling the windows 7.
Just follow the steps which comes your screen and it will be done.

WIth regards
