Re: cd drive 3inch?

It seems that even though this is a slot-loaded DVD/CD-R drive that you can still eject manually by a button; the manual does not say it can take the smaller CDs but, it would seem odd that it would not.

Cd won't eject

If you unbend a paper clip, there should be a pinhole in the drive. Push the paper clip into that pinhole until the drive pops out. Then you can pull it out the rest of the way. Then gently push it back it.

How can i tell the difference between a dual lamp LCD and a single lamp LCD Acer aspire 9500

The dual lamp should have a part number on it: LX.A880J.002

Of the Acer 9500 version models, that should be the way to tell the difference.

Cd stuck

Yes, there is a small pin hole on the cd drive.

Take a toothpick or paperclip and press it into the hole. That will eject the cd.

Let me know if this works.

Best of luck!

Aspire 9500 doesn't start - cursor and drive indicator blinks

Generally the bios setting will be set to check the primary Hard disk for the Operating system and then move to the CD/DVD drive . It looks like your system is not finding the hard disk. Thats why its moving on the CD drive and trying to read it.

Possible issues :

1) Hard Drive crash
Solution : Nothing much. You need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS.
2) Hard Drive connection issue.
Solution : Open the chasi and try to figure out if the hard disc is properly connected.
3) Corrupted OS or boot file
Solution : Try to repair the OS use the OS cd and run the repair option.
4) Bios setting to treat CD drive as the primary media.
Solution : Use the F10 option in the Bios to change the primary Media.

Rate the Solution accordingly...

Verizon tells me I need to reinstall my aspire 9500 wireless card.

They must mean you need to reinstall windows on your computer. you can do it by using the cd's that came with your computer. By doing so you will loose all data on your computer so before doing it. make a backup of everything that is important on your computer.
