Hi,

you may have a faulty laser in your drive, the best solution will be to try and use another known good working drive in your machine, by doing this you will out find if the fault is with the drive or the the software/mother board.

hope this helps

Dvd writer not recognising any disc.just says insert disc


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.

My aspire ax3400 wont load disks


Are you saying your CD/DvD drive does not read any disks? If so, are you using disks that a friend made (put music on it) or are you using store bought disks (purchased a music cd from a store)? Most computers have problems with disks made by someone else at one time or another.

Click Start/My Computer and look to see if your CD/DvD drive is showing up in the list. If not, that's the problem. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, then remove the two cables that plug into the CD/DvD drive then put them back in securely. Sometimes the drive just needs to be reseated. Now see if the computer see it in My Computer and if it will Read your Disks.

When you boot your machine, look and listen for the CD drive to make a click and the light on the cd drawer comes on for a second or two. That means the drive is recognized by the computer.

If all fails, Maybe your drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

My desktop wont load games


If this is a CD/DVD, you should check the Device Manager to see if it is operational and if Windows "Sees" it. You may need to re-install its drivers. In Device Manager, that drive will have an exclamation symbol next to it if it's suspect.

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.

I want upgrade my memory in my Acer Aspire mod. 1694 WLMi, how to do that and which kind of memory I mast buy?


It looks like you've got DDRII memory. According to Crucial http://crucial.com you can place up to 2GB of memory on your machine. (1GB in each slot) If you're unsure, remove one of your existing memory sticks to verify that it's DDRII.

Can you see this drive in the BIOS, My Computer or Device Manager?
If not, you need to re-check the cables. If so, it may be defective.
