If the eject button on the faceplate doesn't work there are two other ways to open it.

1. Open My Computer, Right-Click the drive, then select Eject from the grey menu.

2. get a paperclip, straighten it, then insert it slowly and gently into the small hole in the DVD faceplate. when you feel the switch, press in with gentle preasure then back out. This should release the drive lock and it should pop open.

If neither of these two solutions works there may be a bent lock or a disk jammed in the drive. You will have to identify the set screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the dvd then remove the screw and slide it out, then retry step two while giving the faceplate a bit of preasure.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Resored my computer lost all my acer drivers

you'll need the drivers cd that came with your acer, or another computer and a flash drive.

run the drivers cd or:

go to on other computer and look in the downloads and support for your computer.

download the ethernet and/or wireless drivers onto the flash drive. put the flash drive in your comp and install those drivers.

restart your comp and you should have internet capabilities.

go to and download the remaining drivers.

if acer doesn't seem to have the drivers anymore, then search google for "Acer (your computer's model number) drivers"

Hope this helps.

Removed E drive in accident

Dear dity2325

Right then, this depends on how you mean by the E:\ (CD/DVD) drive was removed. If it was removed physically, and the drive is actually taken out of the laptop then installing it is easy enough. All you need to do is locate the drive the correct way round, and then push it home into the open slot until it locks into place. Then you are pretty much done.

You may have to go into the BIOS/ CMOS settings and make sure that the drive is recognised in the system, if not then there is a way to get the drive to be recognised, but it will mean that you have to scan for hardware changes within the CMOS/ BIOS and then once the drive is detected, you save settings and exit, then you are done.

If the problem is within the windows or other similar operating systme, then you are going to have to format your hard drive, and re-install your operatingg system, and see if windows then picks up the drive again. If it does not, then it will be a lot easier to just discard the old optical drive, and buy a new one as they are somewhat cheaper now than they were a few years ago. If you do decide to service the unit yourself, then i cn provide you with technical assistance on this too, but i will need to know a lot more details about your computer system in order for me to help you.

Well i do look forward to hearing what you have to comment or ask with regards to this matter, and i will reply to you as soon as possible with more information should you need it.

In the meantime I hope that this is the fixya for you, and also wish this matter to be resolved with this information provided.

hope to hear from you soon, and take care.

yours sincerely

Acer Laptop 2413 cd/dvd problem

Yes, this is probably due to a CD/DVD drive that has gone bad. You can purchase a replacement drive from the manufacturer - ACER or you might also want to try looking on Ebay.
