Executing backup to a DVD on Acer Aspire 5515 notebook
There is a suggested backup message on my notebook and when I insert a DVD to backup it runs for awhile then gives me error messages. The error numbers are 204 and 1012. Do I have a defunct drive for warranty replacement? I've tried a DVD-R and have also tried a DVD-RW.

Does the laptop play CDs?
If so then when you start a DVD and before you play the movie, go into the audio setting and configure the speakers for laptop stereo speakers.
If you cannot hear music from the CD then check :-
1. The audio settings, volume not set to minimum and mute is not ticked (enabled)
2. Device manager - sound device is enabled and working, if not re-install the sound driver.
try restarting your machine. tap the correct key to get into your bios. most of the time its f2. in there make sure the recovery mode is active/enabled. i believe on an acer its called D2D. then when you restart your machine hold down shift key and tap f8, that should take you through the recovery. let me know if that helps
check the BIOS setup screen, when you get the ACER screen press F2 or F10 or the DEL or END or ESC key one of those will get you into the bIOS SETUP. Once there revise the boot order, make sure the CD is first to boot then HDD. Also review to see if the BIOS recosgnized the HDD. the symptom you are describing may be a bad HDD.
