I own a acer aspire az3101-u4062. everything seems to work normal except i cant open the dvd drive

Look carefully at the front of the drive, near the eject button. There maybe a small hole. If there is insert a straightened paper clip and the drive will open.

Bd rom wont eject

If it does not eject, how does it open?

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

I have the same problem the toshiba recovery disk i get error message 10f8060017.its a toshiba A105-2194 win xp media edition. i have tried everything wiped the disk to all 0's. Used a win xp original disc...

You have tried all possible solutions and troubleshooting.

My Suggestion is to check the Warranty of the Hard Disk and get it replaced. this possible shows a mismatch between the Laptop and hard drive.

I keep getting and eject disk type of error regarding a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-85J Media which I do not know what it is. I don't think I've ever purchased such a program to begin with. How do I get rid of that...

The error in question is with your DVD ROM Drive. Go online to your manufacturers web site and download any updated firmware for that specific drive.

Wen I am going to eject external hard disk there is some error is coming "Generic voliume is not stop try again later" I close running programe & tried but same result.What is the solution?

It is good practice to use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon before removing the external device.
As long as you have completed the disk copy or movement beween the device and the laptop, it really doesn't matter, it is system protocol calling for compliance. I suppose it is usefull as it reminds you you are taking something away that you may need again. Computers seem to think we have no idea of what we are doing. They may be right in some cases!

Hope that explains it.

I bought a laptop from ebay but every time i try to turn on the computer i get this media test fail and the screen shows error message non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready

Hello, the 'media test failure' message just means it's not got a network connected to it as it's trying all boot options to try to find a valid boot file somewhere (anywhere!)
Either you've got a floppy disk in the drive as all computers will attempt to boot from the A: drive if there's a floppy disk in it. Just eject it and try booting again.
Another possibility is that the previous owner of the laptop didn't want any of their data that may have been on it from getting misused, so erased the hard drive.
In this case, you'll have to buy a copy of the Operating System you wish to use, go to the HP support website and download all the drivers onto a memory stick and do a new install, which isn't a bad idea anyway as at least you know it'll be free of nasties and viruses.
p.s. the hp website is
just answer the country q?, type in your model, and select download drivers.

When i go to computer to eject disk it tells me cpmputer not resp

First try a different disk.
If that dosen't work, go into device manager and delete the cd rom drive and let windows reinstall it.
Could also try cleaning the reading eye in the drive itself with a q-tip and alchohol. Little glass looking eye when u open the draw.
if none of those work u might have a bad drive.

Compaq presario recovery commands

try starting the computer with the disk in the drive, I had to run the recovery disk on my compaq a few years ago, I think the disks pretty much tell you what to do. If you want to wipe it clear and lose everything type fdisk in the start/run prompt field. Then the recovery disk puts it all back to factory .
