Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I can't finalize a DVD on my Acer Extensa 4420. I follow the instructions, but the DVD is only readable in my Extensa, not in any other system.

    I am running Vista Home Premium. I went into device mgr, unistalled it, rebooted and it detected it and reinstalled the drivers... Still can't read it on my Compaq Presario. I wll try to play a DVD movie on both to see if the Presario DVD Reader is working.



    Thank YOU

A DVD/RW drive will write DVDs
A DVD Rom Drvie will only read DVDs

If its a DVD/RW then remove device and reinstall

    Have you done any additions to the softwares or devices lately?

    Maybe updates ????



    Assuming you have XP installed with SP2 updates done then all I can see to do with this is to remove device and reinstall it,



    This drive should be quite sturdy and if its failure could be a number of reasons but the easiest fix is to remove and reinstall.

    Don't forget to scan your machine for and virsus or bugs asap



    If it persists replace it and no more head aches,



    Hope this helps,Thanks

Well, I did the same thing, replaced vista with XP Pro, and couldnt get the wireless to work (the xp runs incredibly faster on this machine, B.T.W).
After days and days of trying to figure out this same problem, I finally found the driver. I found it at gateway...the link is here... http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?param=Wireless_Broadcom_4312_v4.170.25.12_XPx86&st=kw
Hope this helps all of you who did the same!
Peace...
