How long has it been giving this problem, if its less than a cpl days you can try restoring to a previous date since some viruses ca cause that problem. If that doesnt work or your system isnt infected then i guess your drive is dead and you will need to get a new one... you could also try your drive on another computer, to ensure its dead.. Let me know what happens..

I have acer aspire 5739g laptop my dvs rom is slimtype BD E ray Which is not working properly d drives shows om computer but when i put cd or dvd it wont show the disk and whenever shows...

Considering your firmware and drivers are up-to-date and completely installed; the computer should show you the information relative to the drive. It may be, that the internal CD/DVD drive is defective and needs replacement. If you do not want to mess with replacing the existing drive, I suggest you go to BestBy or WalMart and purchase an EXTERNAL (Clamshell type) USB to plug into the computer port and bypass the internal drive completely. These drives are about $30 and do everything the original internal drive dose. Including Burning Disks.

Have an acer 5315 it quit on me wont do anything when I try restoring using my default dvds that I made it will only read the first one. when i stick the second one in it kicks it back out like it is empty...

Yes, get another "Copy" a single DVD of a Windows Install disk. Burn it slowly, say a 2x Then run it through, make sure you fully reformat to NTFS again.. NOT quick... Then if all is good it should install your operating system. If it still gives you grief, then I think your hard Drive is faulty. you will need to replace and then install an OS.

I lost my operating system for an acer aspire one netbook i downloaded an 05 gateway recovory can do hardly anything. can i download a recovry disk or burn a disk free?


Not that I am aware of. You can puchase a new recovery disk from Acer for an average of 25 bucks depending on model. The only other way to get it "free" is to find a friend or someone with the same model and burn a copy of thiers.

Good Luck

Acer 7720 will not boot

Do you want to try and see if a 'Linux LiveCD' boots? This is the way I test if the computer works. You burn this CD to a disk, and then boot off of it when you're computer starts. I will not modify anything on your computer as long as you go to 'Try Ubuntu with out installing'

Don't worry, I'm not trying to get you to install anything, just see if it boots into the 'live environment' (means you are running it off of the cd) If this works, that means that it is only your windows installation is messed up, and a reinstallation of windows should work fine with a Windows install CD NOT the recovery cd.

My disk drive wont power up

These drives don't work unless you have a non-microsoft CD and/or DVD burning software program. Some Acer el cheapos come with either no program, or one which is configured for Windows XP instead of Vista and therefore causes conflicts and won't work (I speak from experience). Acer is pretty horrible about their support--they might not even inform you whether your computer came with burning software, and they hand out generic insructions which don't list what YOU should have. I recommend downloading Belarc explorer, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, call Acer telephone support (if you go online for support, they don't even list their telephone number, but try to trick you into thinking you have to use their hair-tearing lousy self-diagnosing troubleshooting programs online, which are worse than useless), and if you get a rep who won't help you, demand to speak to a supervisor, and demand the help you have paid for. It is their problem, not yours. If they tell you it is a Microsoft problem, not theirs, they lie--all preinstalled microsoft programs are serviced by the computer manufacturer, not microsoft. Acer customer support is 800 816-2237, 8 to 5:30

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive

ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
