Try the following:
  • Use a CD Cleaner (Or try with a soft cloth with a spirit)
  • Worse case scenario, you will need to take it to repair shop to change leaser head.

How do i install a cd if i dont have a cd drive on the laptop?

Only way I would know is to hook up and external cd drive to one of your USB ports and in the BIOS change the Boot sequence to use the USB Storage first so the it boots up off of the cd first and you can install what you need to off of the cd.

hi there
there are couple of steps involved in formating the laptop.
i will try to give simple and easy solution
--> save/backup all your important data into external hard drive or DVD/CD so you will not loose the data
--> i hope you have the xp cd with you
--> put the xp cd in the drive
--> restart the computer
--> press del/f2 to go to BIOS (setup)
--> in boot configure first drive should be your dvd drive
--> press F10/ save changes and exit
--> it will ask press any key to load from cd
--> after that the xp setup will start
--> follow the instructions
--> you can delete and create partitions here too or simply format the drive
--> install the xp
--> install the drivers
--> your laptop is ready to go but dont forget to change the BIOS setting to normal again.

hope it will help you sir.

Setting new hard drive up on acer 5315 series

If the Back Up Disk you mean the 2 Recovery Disks that you have burned from the eRecovery in Acer.

You have to enable D2D Recovery on the BIOS Setup, it's usually on the second page of the BIOS Setup on a Acer Aspire Laptop.

Please Rate, Thanks

Did you try axcessing the drive manually ??? Start > My computer > D:(you cd drive),, If it doesnt show up then the drive may be damamged. If it does you just need to associate the .ext with a program. Double click on the drive if a option box doesnt open up, you should see the audio files.. just right click on one and select properties. You should see the program the file is associated with. Just click change and select another program.
