Laptop cd-rom troubles

I have an Acer Aspire 3610 laptop.When I try to load CD (a movie for instance) my CD-rom doesn't work any more.It makes a noise which is different of the one it made at the time it worked properly and then nothing;it cannot read any cd or dvd no more.This happened first after I tryied to watch the content of an old rewritable DVD disc .
Can you give me a piece of advice of what should I do ?Thank you very much.
P.S-I am a romanian cityzen living in New Zealand;I could see your name looking like a romanian one so if you wish we can use the romanian language to comunicate.
For further information you can contact me at cioban_dorel@yahoo.com
Thanks again

    Same problem. Started 3 years ago, now the drive is just there as a back display. The magic thing is: sometimes when I insert the original Windows or Microsoft Setup CD, it's back alive -- sometimes. I tried to search for replacement parts online, but it's cheaper to get a brand new laptop than to get the parts.

    NOTE: My beloved GP22W had had problems with the blank screen, depreseed key noise (they disappeared, just like that), and it's giving me the stressful loud noise (most probably from the cooling fan) since 6 months ago.

    Any help would be very appreciated -- but real and logical ones, please. Thanks a zillion!

You need to download the latest DVD Decoder software from the net or borrow from a friend. Buy from ebay or any software store.

If your asking which driver you would need for your CD Drive. The answer is you don't need a special driver for it. If it's not working then you could try cleaning the laser lens with a CD laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't work then you need to replace the CD drive.

Acer aspire 3690, my cd-rom will play movies, audio and some old games can be read but mostly refuses to read most of my game disks now, any ideas??


Try an external DVD drive that you can connect to your USB port. The drive you have in the laptop either has a dirty laser lens, which you can carefully clean with a "Q" and alcohol, or the laser itself may be going out. The drive can be replaced. You mentioned you have a cd-rom. If you can play movies (DVD) it is more likely a DVD drive instead of a cd-rom. CD-ROMs can only read data or music.

Depending on what bios it has it may not show the cd drive. All you can do is set it to auto or if it has the option to cd or atapi. Then set the boot order so that the cd is looked at before the hard drive and you should then boot off of the cd.

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
