Just check the connection of your cdrom on the My computer if they have appear. If the cdrom was display in the My Computer just clean the cd lens of that cdrom. Remove the cdrom from your computer and open the cd lens then clean it by the piece of cotton and add a small amount of alcohol then rub on the cd lens. After that insert back the cdrom then try to power on your computer and if the problem are the same not solved. Just replace the cd lens of your cdrom, But if the cdrom was not display in the My Computer just check the connection inside if the power supply of the cdrom are connected to its back.

There is not an emergency DVD eject hole that is evident anywhere on the front or side of the Acer x1200 desktop. I have done this on other computers before so know what to look for. When I push the button...


Is your optical drive hidden by a panel? Some computers have this cover that should flip down when the drive opens and close when you close the drive. If this is the case, you need to get behind the cover to find the manual eject hole. For whatever reason, I can't get the Acer manual to load today so I can't quickly check how to remove the entire faceplate from the computer.

http://support.acer.com/ is a good starting place.

Since the drive is recognized by the computer, I suspect the cover may need adjustment (or the cd tray isn't pushing hard enough).

I hope this helps.

My internet wont work anymore because i downloaded an update ( Windows home premium) on my acer x1200 I want to wipe / recover my computer to its original facttory settings but ive tried everything. I dont...


Click: Start
Click: All Programs
Click: Accessories
Click: System Tools
Click: System Restore

Pick a "restore-point" that was taken _before_ the update was applied,
and restore your system to that previous date/time.

OR ....

Look under "All Programs" for a utility that will help you burn CD/DVD(s) to create a "Recovery Disk" set. Burn more CD/DVD(s) with all your "data" files (or copy all your data-files to an external hard-drive). Then, boot from the "Recovery Disk", to begin the process of restoring the "factory" settings.
