Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
The cd drive is not working,i mean it does not recognise any cd at all.now it wont even allow me to format my hard drive or backdate the system .
First thought is either virus/trojan which is causing problems or a hard drive failure causing loss of data. Has this problem been sudden or occurred over a long period of time. Have you been able to read from the cd drive b4 then 1 day been unable to?
I had a similar problem on my desktop when being unable to backdate which was a trojan in my system32 folder. Have you been using an antivirus &/or firewall? Are you downloading from 3rd party sites a lot and not scanning these? Alternatively, are you using internet explorer (most malware etc is designed for sending through this browser - hence it's easier to switch to firefox or something else to stop 90/95% of problems).
