Check to see if it is showing up in the hardware section of device manager. Click on Start - Control Panel - System - and in the left hand pane you should see Device Manager. If the CD/DVD player is showing up there then the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows may not. This could be due to incorrect or lost drivers. I would suggest going to Acer's website and downloading the most current drivers and also if there is a bios upgrade do that as well. That should correct the issue.

Acer Aspire 5610z will not detect the CD Drive or content


Try cleaning the lens on the dvd/cd drive with a qtip and dip it in alcohol 70%. But I've personally done this few times with just water not having the alcohol around.

Carefully clean the lens with the wet end of the qtip, roll it a few times (max 3) then dry it with the other end and see if it can read your cd's

While setting up my ACER Aspire AX3200-ED5600A, it asked which OS installation, Windows Vista Home Premium E-1 or F-1 64 bit. Not knowing what this was I clicked F-1, now everything is in French. What do I...


If you use cd or dvd to install os, just start your computer and boot from cd then install OS from beginning and choose the drive that installed french and format it, continue installation and click E-1 for english.

hope this will help you.

My acer can't find its os


Start your computer, before it gets to the error hit the F8 button. This is Safe Mode. Click on Last Known Configuation and follow the steps. The purpose it to load your computer to an earlier date before you had problems. If that does not work then you should reload Vista with the disc that came with your computer.
