Have you tried to use a cd/dvd cleaner in it,this may fix the problem as the laser can get dirty, failing that, you may have to take the drive out to get the brand & model number .
good luck

My aspire ax3400 wont load disks


Are you saying your CD/DvD drive does not read any disks? If so, are you using disks that a friend made (put music on it) or are you using store bought disks (purchased a music cd from a store)? Most computers have problems with disks made by someone else at one time or another.

Click Start/My Computer and look to see if your CD/DvD drive is showing up in the list. If not, that's the problem. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, then remove the two cables that plug into the CD/DvD drive then put them back in securely. Sometimes the drive just needs to be reseated. Now see if the computer see it in My Computer and if it will Read your Disks.

When you boot your machine, look and listen for the CD drive to make a click and the light on the cd drawer comes on for a second or two. That means the drive is recognized by the computer.

If all fails, Maybe your drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

Aspire ase380-ud421a cd/dvd drive stopped working


Try going to system setup by hitting Delete when you see the acer/aspire logo when you restart, then open your drive there. If it doesn't work, it is likely that your drive needs to be replaced. You could also try reseating (pulling out and putting back in) the cables inside the computer that's connected to your drive. All else fails, replace the drive.

You will need to go to a working computer and go to this web site:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html
Download the drivers onto a flash drive or have them burned to a CDROM/DVD and bring them to your Acer and upload/point to them on the flash/cdrom/dvd, should fix you right up.

I have acer aspire laptop purchased from dabs feb 2007 hard drive crashed 2 weeks out of warranty, i have put in new hard drive, how much would it cost to puirchase the discs for operating system serial...


Hi,

If your Aspire laptop has a Microsoft sticker at the bottom with the Product Key, it is not necessary for you to re-purchase CD installer of the Operating System. You could try borrowing from friends their XP Pro CD installers or even an OEM and simply use that. When asked for the CD key, use what is printed in the aforementioned sticker.

As long as the motherboard/entire machine is not replaced, then this would be an acceptable alternative. Should you still wish to purchase an Windows XP Pro SP2 installer CD, it would roughly cost USD 60.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
