My acer laptop cdrom does not boot start at all

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the CDROM driver via the device manager.

Right Click on Computer. Click on Manage. Go to Device Manager.

Right Click on the CDRom driver. Uninstall. Restart the computer so that windows will generate the driver. Update it. You can either go to the website of the computer's manufacturer to get the updated version of the driver or do it automatically by using RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

You have one of two problems....

1 - The driver for the cdrom drive has become corrupted somehow and needs replacing. Go out to the ACER website and download the cdrom driver specific to your make and model of computer (it is IMPORTANT that you provide specific information in the window boxes to get the correct driver for your hardware.) Once you have the new driver, uninstall the device from within Device Manager. Reboot the computer and when Windows proclaims it has found a new device, select to install the device driver from a specific location. Browse to the folder where you expanded the drivers and let Windows install and update the drivers from that location. OR the other possibility is....

2 - Your cdrom drive has died. Remedy, have it replaced.

Give this a whirl:
CD-Rom stops working. After checking device manager you find an exclamation mark on the drive. It doesn't mean the drive is dead. It could be an upperfilter or lowerfilter registry issue that is keeping you from accessing the cd drive.

This fix worked for my client:

Also, try this fix from microsoft.

CD-ROM access is missing and messages cite error code 31, code 32, code 19, code 39, or code 41.

Try this before replacing the drive and remember that you may have to reinstall some burning software.

CD Burner

try looking in control panel>system>harware>device manager and see if there is a yellow exclamtion mark next to your cdrom, if there is right click it and make sure it is enabled, if it is click on properties and select update driver. If the driver update works and your cdrom works then fine, if not try uninstalling the cdrom drive then rebooting, this will be picked up as new hardware again and reinstalled. To uninstall it follow the instructions above to get to it and this time when you right click choose uninstall.
