Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Cd burner I have a acer 5100 laptop. The cd burner is working right, i get a error message to make sure the cd's are clean and not damaged and maybe slow down burn speed. Ive tried several different brands of blank cd's,and slowed down burn speed and get same message, i even went as far as restoring puter back to factory condition and still the same thing. It worked fine when i first got it, i must have burned about 150 cd's. The puter isnt a year old yet.

  1. Try cleaning the lens with a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol and making sure it is dry before trying it again. Please make sure laptop is not plugged in and battery is removed before you do this
  2. return to seller and ask for warranty
  3. if warranty is expired then you need to buy a new dvdwriter. Cheapest probably you can get it in ebay

Hi.
I don't know if this is the case or not, but most burners will fail if you try to use an off name type of disk.
I have had a burner in my computers for several years now, and here is what I have found.
TDK, Maxell, and Dynex brand disks work almost every time.
Sony disks work most of the time, but only at lower to medium speeds.
Memorex disks are a crapshoot, you could have a stack of 50, and maybe 3 or 4 will fail, and then again, maybe 15-20 will fail.
GQ brand works great at slower speeds, but fail alot at high speeds.

Also, you may want to invent in a lens cleaner disk, as it might be that three is dust and dirt inside your burner, and that is what is causing your burner to fail out no you.

I hope this helps you out, and good luck to you.

My Netbook is slow than usually,, how can faster it?? Acer Aspire One 532h-2Bb


#1 Make sure your laptop is free from virus, spyware and trojan. A virus or spyware can make your laptop run slow or even damage the whole system. Run a security scan to find out if there are infection files hidden in the system. The slow laptop would be fixed by eliminating the virus.
#2 Remove obsolete programs to release more hard drive space. Laptop slow problem sometimes would be caused by the less hard drive space. To optimize your slow laptop, you can try to delete those unneeded programs, files from the hard disk especially the system disk.
#3 Empty the Recycle Bin to retrieve more system resource. Your laptop slow symptom maybe arises due to the deleted files in the Recycle Bin. If you forget to empty the Recycle Bin, those files in fact still exist on the hard drive and keep eating up your laptop system resource so that the laptop will run slow.
#4 Scan and fix Windows registry. Do you know how important registry is in Windows system? Corrupted, invalid or malicious registry will slow down your laptop and make it run unstable. You would receive many error messages such as dll errors, Internet Explorer errors or blue screen of death in the using of laptop. Thus, it is necessary for you to fix your slow laptop by cleaning registry errors.

Try deleting all unwanted files like Temp files, disk clean up, disk defragmentation.

If you do see right click on the spesific device and select properties, then write down the status message to me.

Try to re install the dvd programs and try also to clean the dvd head maybe there is a dust cover the lens of the dvd. Use dvd cleaner but if still not working try to clean it manually .If you can open the cover of the dvd clean the head lens by smooth cotton cloth or cotton bud don't use any liquid to avoid more damage of the lens. But if still not working i suggest that you need to buy a new dvd.

Cd burner


Hi moose,

Go to Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware tab>Device manager. Click the + by DVD/CD-rom drives, see if your CDrom is listed. If it is, right click on it, and select Uninstall.
Reboot, and WIndows should find it, and reload it. If it doesn't show up, good chance your CDrom is dead.

Good Luck
