Also try another drive if you can, if it still does not show the drive,
try flashing the BIOs to the latest release, if that dosn't work,
then unfortunately this is a common fault with this model and is a hardware fault on the motherboard.

SOURCE: Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100

for removing bios password you must have to remove cimos bettery for few mnuts but for doing this you have to open case of laptop
and it is not adviceable because your notebook is new one
so find any service station if yor laptop is in warranty period or you may lose your warranty
there isn't any other way to clear cmos without opening case of your laptop and remove cmos bettery
unless you will get cmos password but as u said you didn't put password in your laptop it might be possible that your notebook manufacture him self had put any password in cmose as a company policy
in that case also you must have to go to them

SOURCE: clear bios password on acer aspire 5100-3959

If you remove the base plastic cover to expose the memory ect.. All you have to do is locate the wifi card then remove it (very easy) you will then see the system board battery. Now place a flat screwdriver so that it touches both of the wires going to the system board from the battery. this should reset the bios.....

SOURCE: reset bios password or remove

Search for !BIOS,
or
remove the battery on the laptop's motherboard, wait a few minutes, then reinsert the battery,
or
Read your laptop's manual and find a BIOS reset jumper, and put a piece of metal between the two prongs to reset the BIOS.

SOURCE: ACER ASPIRE 5100 DVD/CD ROM IS NOT DETECTED IN BIOS?

My Aspire 5100 not only looses the cdrom but also the hard drive! It sometimes beeps 3 times.. I'd go into set-up (BIOS) and niether the hard drive or dvd would be listed.. As a last resort, I flashed the motherboard bios with the latest version from Acer and so far the problem hasn't returned. I also set the laptop to hibernate after 30 minutes of non use when both on battery or on ac power. Reason? My problem always started when I left my laptop unattended for some time. When I'd return, the computer would be off.. not asleep or hibernating, but off - even though it was set to never turn off in the power settings in windows. When I'd turn it back on, that is when the hard drive and dvd rom would vanish in the BIOS. So as an added precaution, I set the laptop to always hibernate after 30 minutes.. Like I say, so far so good..

Acre aspire 5100


sounds like a loose hard drive connection, or you need a BIOS update. You should check Acer's website for an updated BIOS. You should also remove the hard drive (usually a 2 minute job with a small screw driver) and re-seat the drive.

CD drive not detected


I think somehow you've turned your CD drive off in BIOS. Turn it on again (if you don't know how to do it, post yout BIOS version, I'll try to help. BIOS version shows somewhere on the screen when you just turn on your computer. For example "AwardBios v.XXXX)

CANNOT FIND CD/DVD DRIVE ON ACER ASPIRE 5100


Is the hardware listed in the BIOS? When the computer first starts up hit a key to get in the BIOS (Esc, F2 or F10 are most likely). If it's not listed in the BIOS then it's likely a hardware problem. Try checking the connections to make sure it's plugged in and getting power.

If it is listed in the BIOS, it's likely a problem within Windows. Check Acer's website for known issues with the cd-rom.
