Seems that the connection between the CD drive & the laptop's motherboard was loosened or broken due to the fall.
Check & make sure that the CD drive is fit tight in place. You might even want to uninstall it from the laptop, check its connection with the motherboard & re-install it again.

The cooling fan in my Acer Aspire laptop (bought 1 year ago) stopped working. Can it be replaced or is it part of the motherboard?


As stated it can be replaced. Might be the pits in finding the replacement fan, though.

Let's take a look at an Acer Aspire 5520 series laptop, as an example,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-acer-aspire-5520-laptop/

Scroll down until you come to the third photo.

Getting to the Cooling Fan in the Acer Aspire 5050 series Notebook PC's, requires a lot more disassembly, however.

The Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook PC, in the category heading, is part of the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's.

This is the Service Manual for the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the second Aspire heading.
The one that begins with Aspire 1200.

Now go down to the 5th line, and scroll across to > 5050.
Left-click on 5050.

This is a PDF file.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

[ Although I would recommend upgrading to Adobe Reader 9, if it isn't on your computer ]

After you click on the file > 5050, you won't see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.

Most of the time the first page pops up within 10 seconds, and it requires additional time to fully download the file.

Suggest you let the file download all the way, before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar.

You can save this file to your computer.
This way you can burn a copy to CD for safekeeping, and easy access anytime you wish.

You can also delete from your computer then, to save Harddrive space.
If you do not know how, and wish to, simply post in a Comment.

For further questions on this please post in a Comment.

Acer aspire 5050 hard drive problems


If your computer has been working and when you start it you get the message that there is no hard drive (no boot device), then your hard drive has gone bad.
If you have gone into the bios and don't see either a hard drive or a CD or DVD, then most probably you are looking at a motherboard problem. It is not very common for the hard drive and CD/DVD to go bad at once.

Acer Aspire 5050 won't boot at all


Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!

Hey' I have an Acer Aspire 5050 and it's just not reading my cd's or dvd's and it doesn't show on my computer please help


Make sure that your dvd is detected in bios, if it is detected then
it's windows registry issue,
try to edit the windows registry, follow the steps from microsoft link below:

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.

How to reformat Acer Aspire 3002LCi Laptop Computer


Acer Aspires don't ship with Install CDs or DVDs, acer suggests that you create your own intall/backups with their empowerment utilities, I know this because I have an An Acer Aspire. A few questions if I may, first have you backed up your hard drive yet? Is there anything important on it, that if you lost it you would be upset? If so then I strongly urge you to backup any important files before you format, why is it you want to format? Please ask yourself these questions before you proceed, I don't believe any of us here would want to be responsible for showing you how to wipe out your hard drives data, so with that said I won't go any further till you have asked and answered those questions.

Hope this helps :)
