SOURCE: Can't find DVD drive under My Computer and regedit fix doesn't work for it

you may have to check the registry manually and if this will not work, you may have to reinstall windows.

1. click start > run > regedit > ok.
2. In Registry Editor, expand the following registry path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

3. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

4. Delete Upper and Lower Filters. (If only one is availabel, that's fine).

5. Restart system and check your drive again.

NOTE: Make sure to do this correctly or else, system will not load to windows.

If manually deleting upper and lower filters will not work then you may have to backup your files and reinstall windows.

SOURCE: ACER ASPIRE 5100 DVD/CD ROM IS NOT DETECTED IN BIOS?

My Aspire 5100 not only looses the cdrom but also the hard drive! It sometimes beeps 3 times.. I'd go into set-up (BIOS) and niether the hard drive or dvd would be listed.. As a last resort, I flashed the motherboard bios with the latest version from Acer and so far the problem hasn't returned. I also set the laptop to hibernate after 30 minutes of non use when both on battery or on ac power. Reason? My problem always started when I left my laptop unattended for some time. When I'd return, the computer would be off.. not asleep or hibernating, but off - even though it was set to never turn off in the power settings in windows. When I'd turn it back on, that is when the hard drive and dvd rom would vanish in the BIOS. So as an added precaution, I set the laptop to always hibernate after 30 minutes.. Like I say, so far so good..

SOURCE: Acer Aspire One has Hard drive Password frozen

There should not be a password set in the BIOS unless you set it up with one. You can clear the BIOS to BRAND NEW state. Acer can guide you through this if it is under warranty. If it is not, write back and I will help you do this.

How to reset the bios on an acer aspire idea 510


Insert the original "System Restore" CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive.
Restart the computer.
Press a key to "change boot order".
Choose to boot from the CD/DVD drive.
Does your computer start to read the disk, and start to load something?

If so, then there's _nothing_ wrong with your computer that _WOULD_ be corrected by doing a "reset" of the BIOS. Put differently, try a "reset" of the BIOS *ONLY* as the _LAST_ thing that you try.

It's more likely that your 'C:' drive has a problem that prevents Windows from loading.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Aspire sa80 how to get it to boot up with dvdrom so i can install vista


Enter bios setup by pressing F2 key or DEL key. Once you are in bios setup, go to BOOT or STARTUP setup. Look at the list of devices listed from first to last. It might has floppy or hard disk as first boot list. By using + - or pageup/pagedown, move your dvd rom to first place. This means that when you startup your computer, dvd rom should pick up as first boot. Don't forget to put the vista cd in the rom before your computer starts. Just a basic thing to remember, make your dvd rom first priority on boot or startup list. After finishing the loading, make sure to reverse the setting back to normal. Thanks

Cd/dvd drive missing on my computer


Enter in the BIOS and see in the boot order or the internal units if the dvd unit is still there. If it isn't then it's dead, replace it.
If it is then you didn't do a correct reinstall. Enter the bios again and make sure the dvd unit is the first in the boot order, boot from a Linux Live-CD like PCLinuxOS and from Computer Management/ Hard Disks  delete all partitions, format the entire disk to something else then format it again to NTFS or FAT. This is the only way you can be sure you are doing a clean install.
