Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
My problem started when a notice popped up on the screen saying,"windows update, click to update windows" I clicked on the notice and it installed a windows 32 program, it caused me all kinds of trouble and I tried all kinds of things to correct it, and tried to restore the computer to a earlier restore date, but none of that worked, so I finally done the factory restore, sence then the drive's have not been right,i think i need to install all new drives that are compatible with my windows program that is on my computer, it came with, "windows 7 Home Premium but sometimes it say's "windows XP, i dont know if that makes a differance or not? PLEASE tell me how I can solve this problem for free.
Sounds like you have tried to down load unregistered software. Microsoft will not let you do that anymore without problems. I never have a problem with upgrades. My neighbor has nothing but problems because he wants free software. Your drive has nothing to do with the download other than to save it. Microsoft an your computer cares nothing about your computers drive, only that it fits an runs. Some where you have downloaded copies or similar an they are rejecting you. If you can get back to the original set up with some disks it will go back to normal

SOURCE: DVD/CD-ROM drive missing
Problem with missing dvd-drive with Acer 5101 solved.
Problem was that depending on boot, even bios couldn?t detect dvd-drive. I
opened my laptop and found out that there were one small screw that wasn?t
connected to anywhere. I opened the screw that locks dvd-drive in to 2.5? slot. In the back of the
dvd-drive is L- shaped peace of metal. One of it?s screws were already dropped
and 2 that were left were loose. I tightened those screws, but drive back and
got my laptop working fine.
Please feel free to post this solution to other forums as
