Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
My DVD Drive is not functioning, how can I get it fixed?
Hi. I think you could try updating the drivers for your DVD drive or by deleting the upper and lower filters on the registry so that we could verify if this a hardware or software issue. follow this instruction on deleting the upper and lower filters on the registry:
Note: The User Account Control window may appear. If so, click Continue. The Registry Editor window appears.
