Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
If this happens for the HDD and DVD together, you may be dealing with a motherboard issue. If you also experience some random freezeups of the keyboard and mouse, and notice that the DVD does slow playback (Try a DVD video to test), and the HDD responds slowly at random times, then it is definitely a motherboard problem. The only solution would be to get a new motherboard or repair the one you have. To do the repair you'll need to do a reflow of the FSB chip that controls the peripheral devides such as HDD, DVD, etc.
