    My cd drive (e:) won't read anything I put into it. It says there is no disc in the drive. My D: drive is actually an 80gb hard drive now, so I know that one doesn't work.

    I've put the cd in at least 6 times and it never read it. I tried blowing some of the dust out, but that didn't work either. All I know is that I purchased it about 6-8 years ago, and it's a Wondows XP home edition Dell desktop. Came with cd burner and dvd drive.

    If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, I don't know all too much about computers, so if it's complex, I might need a detailed explanation. Anyways, please help i need to install this program :*{>[-

Clicking cd player

If the drive is clicking, it is probably broken inside and should be replaced. The link above will show you how to do this and should also have links to replacement parts for your computer

CD/DVD PLAYER NOT SPINNING


Try restarting. If it doesn't work, data cable of the drive (CD/DVD Player) may need to be reseated (pull out and plug back in) inside the computer. You may want to call manufacturer or a local tech (if not in warranty) if you don't know how to (just to be safe).

Cant get sound


Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those with the correct drivers

DVD is not recordable, Acer Extensa 5420


Just put in the blank dvd without trying to burn anything to it and see
if your pc see's the blank dvd, if not find one that is recognized by your pc. After you put in a blank dvd, it should show under my computer in the drive and should be able to open it like a folder, or
windows will pop up a little window that ask's if you would like to burn anything to the dvd.

Dvd not recognized by Windows Media Center


This issue can be caused by a few things. my first suggestion is to delete the upper and lower filters, you can follow this kb document from microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060 for step by step instructions on how to do this. If the problem persists try using microsoft's restore manager to go back to a time when the device was properly working. If all else fails you may have to replace the drive.

Acer Extensa supports two model of HDD installation 1) AHCI and 2) SATA.

Windows Vista get installs on both but for Windows XP you need to Enable SATA option.

For that go into Bios, Change option of Hard Disk from AHCI to SATA. After that you can install both XP as well as Vista.
