Dvd rom will not work


This is normally caused by missing or corrupt drivers for your CD drive. Again if the CD drive is not properly connected to the motherboard of your laptop, this can also happen

1. Try to restart the laptop and observe the results. Make sure there is no CD in the CD drive.
2. If you still have the same result, go to "my computer" and check whether the CD ROM
appears on the list of devices. If it appears then, right click on it and try to eject.
By doing this you want to check whether the CD tray is still mobile and not blocked
by anything else.
3.Then right-click on it again and go to its properties and go to the "Hardware" tab
4. In the Hardware tab, notice the list of drives connected to your laptop and choose the Cd Rom and go to "Properties"
5. Notice at this point, whether the device is said to be working properly or there is something wrong with it.
6. Then go to the "Driver" Tab, and choose "update driver"
6. This will let your system look for the missing or corrupt drivers for your CD drive.
Restart your computer and observe the results

-it is possible that you the optical drive is loose. That can be resolved by re-seating the drive itself.
-first, shut the laptop down, unplug the AC adapter if it is plugged-in then remove thte battery pack of the laptop.
-you need some small philips head screw driver to unscrew just one screw that holds the optical drive located at the bottom of the laptop. You may need to consult the user's manual of the laptop.

ACER 9410CD/DVD-ROM driver not found.


Hi there,
I am assuming you are using XP,

update the drivers via device manager and select the device with the yellow question mark,right click update,reboot and restart

if nothing then remove the device via add/remove programs
select device and remove,reboot and restart

should auto recognise and install the drivers for you,
dont forget to do SP2 updates
Good luck with that,

Let me know how it goes thanks

Cd rom drive and cd burner drive accidently removed


Not sure what OS you have, have you tried removing the drive in the device manager, and then restarting your machine to see if your OS reports new hardware? Or have you tried removing the new memory and restarting the system to see if you problem goes away? I might try this first.

Was anything else attempted or unplugged when installing the new memory?
