If its not in BIOS then sounds like a hardware problem. usually only 2 cables connects to the cdrom, power & ide OR sata. usually these two wouldnt be disconnected so i suspect bad drive.

Slow acer aspire 5520g


Disk defragment is first step. This will locate files closer to each other on the hard drive. Should be located in system tools. Other than that I would save all important files externally and format the drive and start fresh. Beyond that, you would probably need to upgrade.

Daemon tools lite cd key


Dear ghinea_denys, Daemon Tools Lite doesn't need any CD key if used for non-commercial use. It can be installed both as a Shareware and a Freeware. While you are using it for Commercial Use you have to activate the Paid License, and in that case you must provide it with a License Key. To use it for personal and non-commercial work, you should activate the Free License, which will help you install Daemon Tools Lite to your computer without any CD key.


You can download the latest Daemon Tools Lite 4.41.3 from the link below:


http://www.daemon-tools.cc/

N.B. : License key is also needed for using Daemon Tools Pro as full version.


Hope this helps,

Regards,

Mrityunjay.

How can i install windows to a laptop that has a bad cd/dvd rom drive?


Go here download the program http://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/downloads/dtLite
You must have at least a 2GB flash drive, mount the flash drive using daemon tools. Then copy the the install disk to your flash drive. Then power on your computer with the bad dvd drive and go into BIOS and in the BOOT OPTIONS you will need to set the number one spot as USB then dvd (even though it doesn't work) then your HDD. Save the changes you just made to your BIOS and EXIT. This will reboot your computer and should boot the installation of windows from your USB drive. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more help or run into questions along the way.

I HAVE PURCHASED GUARDIAN ANTIVIRUS 2010 BUT MY CD DRIVE HAVE SOME PROBLEM SO I WANT TO ACTIVATE ONLINE , I HAVE PRODUCT KEY ALSO. PLSE SUGGEST


You just need to click here.
this page will direct you to the download page of your antivirus.
Download 32 or 64 bit whatever you want.
Install it on your computer and enter your key on cd

This was a common or normal man's approach.

There is also an advanced approach to this problem bit tricky for layman's in this field.
there are various image mounting tools such as Daemon Tools Lite or Daemon Tools Pro.Choice for the product depends whether you go for pro or not.These create a virtual drive in your pc which is a dvd drive(note this is virtual)
Now comes the very important and interesting part.
also install daemon tools on your friends pc and make an image of your cd from friends pc.
Carry this image in a flash drive and paste in your pc.
now open daemon tools and mount this image.
Mounting image means your compurer will assume that now have another dvd drive and this has your av cd inserted into it.
believe can't get better than this

this approach is better because this overrides any sort of problem reguarding key if it happens.
moreover it's excellent for playing games as cd is always unscratched.

That ends all.
Enjoy your antivirus guy......

How to install pc games without using cd rom?


you should download and install daemon-tools from
http://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/downloads

and it will create a virtual CD/DVD drive which act as a perfect CD/DVD drive.

Then using nero or any CD/DVD image recording device, you can save image of CD/DVD as image files (".iso", ".nrg" etc). Now you can open those image files using deamon tools from the notofication area (your right side of taskbar where time is dispalyed). For more information, visit
