    Thanks Antiochpc!



    I have failed D2D recovery boot because ALT+F10 doesn't work even I set D2D enabled.



    I will re-install win-xp via LAN and replace DVD-Rom.





    Thanks for not wasting my time!

That is due to faulty DVD Rom. You need to replace your optical drive.

I have complicated trouble for my acer 4520, there are: 1. Suddenly, it can't be turn on the BIOS although the power led is on. I'm sure that there is any problem with battery. 2. For a few days ago,...


Generally speaking, the mainj boards are not serviceable without a lot of test gear and usually it is cheaper to replace it.
I think your problem is related to the DVD ROM. If it is not recognised by the BIOS, that generally means that it is not running.
If you can get to the BIOS then the motherboards system is running.
Remove the DVD ROM from the machine and fit another one.
Check out ebay for a replacement, a lot of private sellers and business sellers will be there.
Hope that saves you some time and cash.

My dvd rom is not recognized


Check in BIOS if your dvd drive is recognized. To go to BIOS, do the following:
1. Turn on computer by Holding down power button while pressing the ESC key.
The machine will beep, then display:
Check System, then press [F1] key.
2. Release ESC key
3. Press F1 key

If your dvd is not present on the list of bootable drives, it means that the drive is not detected. Try to reseat the drive. If the drive is still not detected in BIOS it means that drive is failed and needs to be replaced.

The system does not detect the dvd rom in bios and in windows


This can be a dvd failure but we can make sure that every thing is connected properly to confirm that the dvd is not working or what.
Did you mess up with the BIOS? IF not, remember to remove any power sources first. Open up your laptop, carefully remove the DVD rom and place it in the same place. Boot your system.
Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask me any further.

My Lifebook C2340 won't recognize it's own DVD-ROM. When I set the CD in the BIOS, it goes back to "None". It doesn't show up in My Computer. I've cleaned the contacts and tried another DVD. Still won't...


Does it show the device in the BIOS? If not then there could be a problem with the motherboard hardware. If it is not showing up in the BIOS then I would first verify that the power connector for the drive has voltage. Also verify that the slave/master jumpers are correct if the drive has any. You could also try downloading the BIOS update from Fujitsu and see if after updating the BIOS it brings the cd-rom drive detection back. If the BIOS is seeing the drive but Windows is not then the problem could be with the Windows drivers or installation. You could try going into the control panel for windows and use the "detect new hardware function" and see if Windows detects the drive.

You will need to download the latest drivers, check device manager under control panel and make sure the device is enabled.
Check to make sure your cd rom installation has been installed correctly.

ACER ASPIRE 5100 DVD/CD ROM IS NOT DETECTED IN BIOS?


My Aspire 5100 not only looses the cdrom but also the hard drive! It sometimes beeps 3 times.. I'd go into set-up (BIOS) and niether the hard drive or dvd would be listed.. As a last resort, I flashed the motherboard bios with the latest version from Acer and so far the problem hasn't returned. I also set the laptop to hibernate after 30 minutes of non use when both on battery or on ac power. Reason? My problem always started when I left my laptop unattended for some time. When I'd return, the computer would be off.. not asleep or hibernating, but off - even though it was set to never turn off in the power settings in windows. When I'd turn it back on, that is when the hard drive and dvd rom would vanish in the BIOS. So as an added precaution, I set the laptop to always hibernate after 30 minutes.. Like I say, so far so good..
