Cd drive on my acer aspire 5630 laptop

I bought my computer less than 6 months ago and I have treated it like a baby. Never droped slammed or layed anything on it. It won't burn or load a cd it says that the you don't have a cd drive. Which is obviously impossible and its never done that before.

Im a girl so I don't know too much about these things but what are some possibilities as to why it would do this and how can I fix it?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11­CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


Apparently it seems that this is an age old fix for even XP systems. If you venture to the registry key above by doing the following steps:

  1. Click on the start menu.
  2. If this is a Vista machine in the search box type in “regedit” without the quotation marks.
  3. Maximize the HKeyLocalMachine and then go ahead and browse until you reach the key listed above.
  4. In the right panel you’ll see something along the lines of “UpperFilter” and “LowerFilter” you want to click on each “filter” key and hit delete. Click yes when it asks to confirm if you wish to delete the key.
  5. Restart Windows.

Acer Extensa 5630EZ does not start


Not really sure--could be a motherboard problem. But you say the computer is less than 3 months old. That means it's still under warranty--so call their tech support. You paid for support when you bought the machine, so I would use it.

Downloading from a CD


Hi there.

When you pop in the cd, give it a few seconds, then open My Computer and double click the cd icon. You should then be able to see the files on the cd and click on the setup file.

Let me know if this works.

DRIVER PROBLEM


If your computer is less than six months old, you can contact the manufacturer and they will help.

Secondly, the new devices for sound and video are mounted, especially on laptops, on a special high definition bus (or something like that).

I had a similar problem with HP laptops whereby this advanced bus was easily detected by Vista but I had to install XP and the sound went kaput. The only way to solve was to install this driver patch specially prepared by the manufacturer.

That is why you have to contact the manufacturer.
