Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

3 Answers


1. The pace of both the picture and sound is inaccurate and jerky.
2. Sound and picture are often out of sync.
3. Jerkiness occur repeatedly, but sometimes the movie wont continue to play at all. The drive tries to spin up, pauses, tries to spin up again ? this goes on and on for several minutes and can?t be stopped (the drive won?t eject). When it finally stops and the drive ejects the disc will be burning hot.
4. You never know if/when (and why :mad: ) the movie will stop working in the middle.

Sometimes the problems are really bad, sometimes not so. At its worst the computer won?t play a disc at all. A disc that won?t play at all one day may at least be somewhat watchable the next.
6.Also, when i try to burn movies onto cd it takes much longer than usual.
7. You cant play audio on the laptop when the dvd drive is running.

    My Computer Seems to have a similar problem with cds and dvds.

    As soon as the disk starts spinning, the sound of the whole computer struggles and so does the picture. Its almost like the computer struggles to play dvds. It was normal and able to play dvds before.. :S

My computer says that it has Cyberlink DVD 9 on it. But I can't play any DVDs on it. What shall I do?

First, gotta make sure you have a DVD drive, most modern computers do: DVD, DVD/ CD-RW, or DVD-RW drives are commonplace these days. If you have a DVD drive and it doesn't play anything, then more than likely you have a defective drive (DVD drives not working with DVD discs is a fairly common type of failure - insofar as failures go).

To be absolutely certain, try playing an original, commercial DVD movie - one that you know is good - if it still doesn't play it then it is, in all likelihood, a failed DVD drive.

My drive doesn't read all dvd that i inserted

There can be some reasons for this behavior:
1. If those are movie DVD's from a region that your player is not unlocked to play, it won't play it.
2. The DVD's have deep scratches.
3. There is some problem with your DVD player itself. You can get it repaired but its best to buy new.

Why wont my dvd drive play dvds? Yesterday, I was watching a movie and I was really tired so I simply closed the computer. The next day I was going to finish watching my movie but the computer wouldnt...

I suggest that you clean it first using some soft of air blower, maybe there is something stuck in there. just make sure the computer is not switched on.

One more thing, take the driver out of the the boot sequence from BIOS if the noise happens when the computer starts up.

Also, check with the manufacturer if it is still under warranty. Sometimes if you have used a shatter, it could damage the drive gears.

If it is too old, perhaps you would want to replace it with a new one because maybe there is drive failure that cannot be fixed.

My computer volume was suddenly stop working while i was watching movie, i checked all volume set ups but didn't work so please solve that problem

1. Was this a movie that came from a video store or was this movie on the hard drive?
2. How old is your PC and or your DVD optical drive?
3. This could be due to a bad burn ( the movie that is)
Some movies that are burned sometimes are interrupted and therefore will create a "halt" state on some DVD players and some PC DVD burners.
4. Also dirty DVD's will halt a movie in progress the laser is try to read the data through multiple finger prints or grease
5. Washing the DVD with dish washing liquid ( a drop or 2) and the rinsing and drying thoroughly usually renders the DVD playable again. Do not use hot water on the DVD disk it will warp the disk.
