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).

> cannot fully format the hard-drive ...

What program are you using, and what happens (after how much time) when you try? What error-messages?

Your only "solution" may be to re-install Windows, and allow the Windows Installer to "format" the disk-drive.

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update

Acer Aspire 5920G wont play dvd, it wont even recognise them!


If it recognises cd but not dvd it means the drive is faulty. There is 2 lasers one for cd and one for dvd. The dvd laser is faulty. It also means that it is not dirty lens because it reads cd's.

Acer aspire 1 will not load XP


If this a new drive you need to prepare it using a hard drive utility before windows will recognise it. The drive manufacturer may provide this for you. Maxblast is one such program as is Datalifeguard from Western Digital.

You don' t say what OS or even type of computer (PC, Mac, Windows XP, 98, vista etc) you are running, or whether the drive has been used before. If it's a new drive then it probably needs formatting, so you can allow the OS to do that. If it contains data that you need then DO NOT allow the OS to format it.

If you know it is formatted & contains data, then it sounds like the OS is not recognising the format. Windows 98 typically won't recognise NTFS disks formatted on Windows XP for example or Linux Ext3/4 format disks won't be recognised by Windows. In the latter case, you can download a free driver which will do that for you - google Ext 4 and Windows.

Hard driver (seagate)


hi,

is it a sata or ide (pata) drive? does the bios recognise it yet? if it does then you know you have a software problem which could mean you may just need to partition or format the drive.

if the bios can't even see it then you will need to change the jumper settings on the harddrive to make it compatible with your mother board.

good luck
