Hey Hi.

FIRSTLY MAKE SURE SINCE HOW LONG YOU ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM AND TRY SYSTEM RESTORE IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED IT AND IF YOU HAVE THEN FOLLOW THESE STEPS...

FIRST METHOD SYSTEM RESTORE
WINDOWS XP METHOD
Start > Run > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > Select A Highlighted Date And Then Click on it and then system will restart on its own.

WINDOWS VISTA METHOD
START > SEARCH > SYSTEM RESTORE > > Select A Highlighted Date And Then Click on it and then system will restart on its own.

In process of system restore any type of software installation made between the dates selected and current date would be gone which you can easily install after the issue is fixed if that was not the cause of the issue

1) Click on Start -> Run -> Regedit-> Registry Editor Will Come Up.

2) Then Follow These Registry Settings By Clicking The Small Triangle Mark In Front Of It..

3) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
Current Control Set
Control
Class
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

OR SOMETHING WHICH IS SIMILAR TO IT BUT IT SURELY HAS THE E965 IN IT. IT WOULD BE NEARLY 5TH or 6TH Registry Key....

In Short Guide Yourself To This

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Once You've Reached In The Registry Key Then On The RIGHT HAND SIDE BOX Right Click upper filter and lower filter and then delete it...

THIS LINK WILL HELP YOU IN SEARCHING FOR THE CORRECT REGISTRY KEY VALUE AND DELETION

CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK

Restart Your System

See Everything Would Be At Place...

My aspire DVD drive will not work


I see ..if it reads the cd and dvd-s it is probably good and all you have to do is to reinstall the program that u use to burn disks ..but about the second issue with the sound ..try to reinstall the sound driver ..maybe its corrupt ..also look at the settings in the sound driver to see if it isn't maybe locked on left from balance ..but if you cant figure just reinstall the sound driver too ...
By the way if you was using vista program to burn dvd an cd ...just reinstall the whole machine ..it might just fix all the problems..I suspect that its bug-ed

How TO use recovery cd's to recover TO ORIGINAL ACER ASPIRE


Just reinstall the OS again. When you don't need to save any data, just turn on your laptop and boot into the bios.
When you don't know how to get there look at the scrren during boot up and it will tell you which button you have to press. Can be F2, DEL or even another button. When you are in the Bios, just look around until you find boot priorities and change your boot priority to CD/DVD first followed by the HDD, save and exit. Insert your OS and when it ask you to boot from CCD/DVD hit any key on your keyboard and follow the installation instructions

ASPIRE 5100 DVD DRIVE WONT WORK ICON DISAPEARD ON MY COMPUTER


You may want to go to the device manager by right clicking on My Computer and selecting properties. Then select the hardware tab. The device manager will list the categories of the installed hardware. Click on the DVD\C-ROM drives tab and see if it is listed. If it is, then you can uninstall it and then let windows reinstall the drive. If it is not, you may want to try to boot from a windows install CD. If it boots from a CD then most likely it is a driver issue and you may need to reinstall windows. If it will not boot from a CD then the drive may be dead.
If you need more help feel free to let me know.

Cheers

Acer 5100 lost dvd/cd drive


Is the DVD drive listed in device manager under CD/DVD drives at all? If so, remove it and reboot. Windows might be able to re-detect and reinstall the drivers for it, but odds are the drive is bad. You can try removing the drive from the computer, and use compressed air to blow out the area where it connects to the laptop. Also check the connection on the DVD drive to make sure there isn't any physical damage, bent pins, etc.

Hope this helps - remember to rate!
