Check the bios to make sure the drive is recognized.

As far as printer install goes, you can just download the latest install package from Epson's website direct.

If the drive isn't recognized you either have a bad drive or a problem with the motherboard. Either way you should remove the drive from the laptop and then reseat it back into the laptop. While everything is off and the battery removed of course.

Check your device manager for device flags.
If found remove them. Remove the device and allow windows to reinstall the drivers.
If the imageing device is not being shown in device manager, you may have a bad webcam.
Remove any, all usb input devices and reboot to safe mode.

How to Reset or Remove Acer Aspire 4752Z BIOS password?


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

I need to obtain Acer erecovery software on CD/DVD


The eRecovery software should be installed on your computer and you can use it to burn the disks yourself.

Click Start, Programs, Acer Empowering Technology, Acer eRecovery Management.
The management windows will open.
At the bottom click on Burn Disk
Click Create Factory Default Disc - good idea to have this because it put the machine back to new state - warning, you will wipe out any existing data from the hard drive if you boot of this disk.
You can also burn a driver and application backup disk and a current system configuration backup

If you click on Backup on the bottom you have the choice of doing a full system backup,this is probably what will work best for you but I do recommend having a set of factory default available.

If you can't restored the driver, you should reload the operating system using Alt+F10 or using disks (not from windows, boot from disks)
In your case, it's look like you can't access the dvd in windows, i hope you can access in dos mode.
