SOURCE: CD DVD not detected at start up

Check to see if it is showing up in the hardware section of device manager. Click on Start - Control Panel - System - and in the left hand pane you should see Device Manager. If the CD/DVD player is showing up there then the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows may not. This could be due to incorrect or lost drivers. I would suggest going to Acer's website and downloading the most current drivers and also if there is a bios upgrade do that as well. That should correct the issue.

I cannot find a new restoring point for my paker bell computer

The restore points in windows are generated automatically, in order to restore your computer to a previous date a valid restore point would need to already exist. You cannot manually assign a restore date.

Having problem with a Blue Screen of death and a chkdsk scheduled at start up


if this has been a recent problem...try restoring the system to a back date.

boot to safe mode by pressing f8 key on initial dell logo on startup.
you can run system restore which will bring the computer back to an earlier time lets say few days back with the help of selecting the date in the calender in the system restore tool.
To go into system restore tool click on start select accessories and the system tools and then system restore.
Select restore my computer to an earlier time and click the date in the calender box once highlighted hit next and wait till the process completes once completed it will restart the system automatically and will give you a message your computer was restored successfully in case it says not restored then you can select another Bold date i mean a previous date to retry again.

Just bought an acer aspire worked fine for a few days now it will pop up there was a problem with the internet and shut the itnernet down,it started out going blue screen and at the bottom...

I think the problem is related to virus. Try restoring your PC to an earlier date 9 a date when it worked fine). You do this from Start-> Programs -> Accesories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Select
Restore my computer to an earlier time and Click Next. A date calender will appear, select the preferred date and click Next twice. The system will automatically restart when restoration is done.

If u are not abe to run System Restore then you need to enter safe mode by pressing F8 during booting and selecting Safe Mode from the menu that appears. In safe mode you will be asked a question, you have to select no, and system restore will start

If restoring your pc does not solve the problem then you may need to reinstall your OS.
