Question about Acer AL1716Bbd 17" LCD Monitor
The computer somehow does not recognise the dvd/cd drive. I have been been on the net, but am reluctant to download programs which should fix it. The drive does seem to recognise CDs but not DVDs. I would be grateful for your help.
Take the drive out and carefully take off the top. The lase shines through a very small glass cover that looks like a small light bulb. Clean the very fine layer of dust off of this glass "eye" and this MIGHT fix your problem. I have seen this happen dozens, if not hundreds of times. Keever
