Hi,

I am assuming you mean that your computer can not read from or access the drive. If that is the case, try reinstalling the driver from the Compaq support website. If that doesn't work, it may be a hardware issue and require a replacement DVD drive.

Remove the optical drive:
1. Position the computer with the left side toward you.
2. Remove the Phillips PM2.5×7.0 screw 1 that secures the optical drive to the computer.
3. If needed, insert a thin tool, such as a paper clip 2, into the release access. (The disc tray is partially ejected
from the optical drive.)
4. Grasp the bezel and slide the optical drive 3 out of the computer.

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.
