Cannot fix cd into cd drive in laptop series 300E5 as middle part of cd drive is larger than the hole in the cd can anyone help


It's suppose to be that way. If you look closely at the CD tray there are tiny spring loaded notches. Just push the cd down and it will snap on the the center. This is designed to hold the disc in place.

Repair ACER Keyboard


Many a times, laptop's keys fell off the keyboard or it gets damaged. Don't fret on buying a whole new keyboard when you can repair the keys yourself.
This is an installation guide to repair keys of Acer’s laptop keyboard.

You should have a key cap and 2 or more retainer clips (plastic pieces), that goes underneath the key cap.

To install the key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing the metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Here you can see that it has one large metal hook at the bottom and two metal hooks at the top.

Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top corners, two sticks at the bottom and two holes in the middle. The top holes are going to go into the top metal hooks on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Take the smaller plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top, two sticks at the middle and a bar with larger hole at the bottom. The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger plastic piece. The bottom bar is going to click onto the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Place the smaller plastic piece onto the larger plastic piece and insert its sticks to the holes of larger piece. It’s one piece now.

Insert the top plastic sticks into the top metal holes and the bottom bar into the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. Get a thin object or a blade and stretch the plastic pieces downwards to insert completely.

Take your letter key cap, put it in the middle of the plastic pieces and push down evenly from all four sides.

My hp laptop cd rom is not detecting the cds. i want to formate my laptop.


Hi there, do not format now. Just try these.
Run the driver disk & install the CD/DVD driver. After finish the setup restart your pc or laptop. Hope that time your CD rom detecting the cds. But make sure, that your rom is working. Because if the cd rom is damaged then after formatting you can't install the operating system. May be your cd rom lens is damaged & that's why he can't read the cds or dvds. I suggest you Visit a service center & check the cd rom only. If you able to view the cd rom driver in side the my computer then, i am sure your vd rom lens is damaged.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

I just bought an Hp pavilion entertainment notebook and I can't figure out how to put a cd in the drive. The center aspect is larger than the CD hole.


You need to apply a little pressure at the center to push it in. The CD when inserted is a tight fit. When you push it down you will hear a click. close the tray and you are ready to play.

How does a small cd install on my cd rom device?


There is usually a space right in the center of the slot that comes out when you eject your CD Drive. If it cannot read it, then chances you will need a DVD reader.

Cd/dvd rom


I am presuming that you have the correct driver for the DVD, and nothing else has changed (no new DVD software that might cause this problem by addressing the drive improperly). Nero and Power DVD can both cause problems if your DVD is newer than the software version.

Now, all that out of the way, here is the diagnosis. DVDs are much higher density than regular CDRoms. DVDs average 4.5 gb, whereas a CD is caped at 0.7gb (700mb). Thus, DVD drives have very low tolerance for ANY kind of error. Therefore, DVD combo drives are not likely to last as long as the rest of the laptop's hardware. Shock at relatively minor levels can damage a DVD drive. Often, they will still open a regualr CD, but fail to read a DVD directory. Your error code, if it is posted at startup, indicates the drive is malfunctioning. You can test it easily. Usually there is only one screw that holds it in (underneath the laptop, about 4 inches from DVD tray cover, towards the center). Turn off laptop, flip it over on a towel, and remove that screw. Tuurn the laptop over again, then insert a straigtened paper clip into the small hole in the DVD tray face. Be careful to push lightly and STRAIGHT in with this paper clip and the tray will pop open. Pull gently, and the whole DVD body will slide out. With a new or used replacement DVD or CD, reattach any hardware on your old DVD to the new one, then slide it back into the laptop 9no need to install screw just yet) Start laptop. If error is gone and DVD plays OK, insert the screw again and make your old tray cover fit the new drive (always can be done if you look closely to find the tabs and remove it gently). Sometimes some plastic will need to be trimmed with an eExacto knife to get a good fit.
