CD ROM DRIVER


Optical drives (cd/dvd) for the most part don't requires drivers in the sense other hardware does. That's why they work during boot.

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Go into your BIOS and select DVD/CD rom as first boot device.
Put your System Disc in the DVD/CD rom drive and restart the laptop.

Acer Athlon x2 Cd drive won't recognize CD


If the PC will not recognise any CD, re boot the PC with your Windows system CD/DVD in the tray. If it reads the disk, the DVD unit is OK, you probably have a conflict somewhere in the drivers.
Go to Control panel, Device manager, double click on DVD/CD-ROM drive, select the DVD drive, doulbe click and from the menu select Driver. Select Uninstall driver and reboot your PC.
When it boots the PC will look for a new driver and place it where there is no conflict.
Hope that helps.
