Acer aspire 5570z- CD ROM NEEDS GLASSES!

Hi everyone

My cd rom doesn't read disks anymore
sounds like it loads, then it stops
It worked once earlier today, now nothing.

i tried to fix it my self
so far this is what i found

YELLOW exclamation point- not working properly
i did a scan- no virus
no newer version- im up to date
I didn't disable or uninstall it

Please help i don't know what to do

I would like to know the cd rom is broken, do i have to replace it with only ACER parts?

Thanks
Nikki

Try uninstalling first. Reboot & see if the drive gets reinstalled automatically. If it does try cleaning with a good quality cd cleaner and see if it will read a known good cd. If it does need replaced you can replace it with an industry stamdard drive as long as it has the same interface as the old drive, ie. SATA or IDE. Hope this helps.

The driver for that cd Rom is not loaded or is corrupt. You need to install a correct device driver. If it still doesn't work try reloading the os.

If its not reading your CD any longer, you will need a new CD Rom drive. If it not opening either, the power to it needs replaced which is the whole unit.

No dvd/cd rom icon


From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.

The driver for the cd rom is built into windows. If the cd rom is saying all cd loaded are blank then you have a damaged cd room. You will need to buy a cd rom lens cleaner to make sure the lens is clear of dust
