If i restored my laptop to factory settings an i think im missing drivers is the a program that will look an c if i got all of them an if i dont it will fix them for free?


You don't say how old your laptop is. Some older laptops came with an Operating System Disc and also a Drivers/Apps Disc. Both would need to be installed to recover to factory settings. If you recovered from a recovery partition on the hard drive, then the drivers should already be installed. Yes there are online services that will scan your machine and install drivers.....many are spam and spyware-ridden. You should simply look at the Device Manager and look for errors that indicate missing or improperly installed drivers. There may be an issue if the network driver is missing, because then you won't be able to get to the internet. Once you know what you need, if you go to the manufacturers website, you can almost always download the needed hardware drivers and install them yourself.

Driver not found


Disk drives get their drivers as a part of the windows operating system They are all standard.

What makes you think you need a disk driver? what is happening?

If your disk drive missing the driver it will not boot up, so how do you know it's missing a driver?

I'm betting the drive had gone belly up.

Drivers lost for the disc drive. error mssg. in


This is probably something caused by a virus and I suggest to reinstall teh operation system ..This will take care of the disk drivers as well ..cause usually the disk drivers are installed with the operation system,..
I think this is an error caused by a virus that attacks the optical drive driver and makes it disappear ..reinstalling the OS from a boot-able disk will fix it ..may sure you save all drivers from the support site before ..so that you will have at least the LAN driver to install and be able to connect after this..
if it refers to the raid drivers or so ..but still works ..eitehr disable teh raid in bios ..or reinstall them all

I only bought my acer aspire 6930 i couple of months ago and recently it has started to play up. It won't read any discs I put in it. When i go to play them it just says please insert disc. I've tried...


rol back the driver, go to the website for the manufacturer that makes your computer. there will be a list of drivers you can download and download a older one and install it. another this is use a cleaning disk. there might be to much build up on the lens. if neither of those work then the drive is toast.

Disc Drive won't read after upgrade to Vista Ultimate


I had a disc Drive that wouldn't work for a while. There are a few things that could be wrong. The first thing I would try is to make sure it's pluged in all the way to both the Motherboard and the Disc Drive. Maybe it wasn't secure in there and when you bumped you computer just a little bit, it got unpluged. The wire connecting the Disc Drive to the Motherboard is probably your thinkest wire, can't miss it.

this next thing I would try is to delete the driver for your Disc Drive and then restart your computer. It should detect it automatically and have it running correctly.

If all else fails, go to Google. Type in the name of your Driver and search for an install that is supported on your operating system.

Drive can not read CDs..read Dvds


I suppose that you have windows XP. Pls follow these steps Clean the disc - Clean the disc with a disc cleaning kit or by gently wiping the silver side of the disc from the center outward with a dry, soft, lint-free, cotton cloth. Check the disc for damage - Remove the disc from the drive, and then examine the disc for scratches or cracks. Try a different disc drive - If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc. If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer. Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive -Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive.
  • A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive.
  • A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs.
  • A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front.
Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers - If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.comRegards

Try to get an Windows XP or Vista CD.

Boot the computer with the cd on drive.

Be sure to select to boot from CD in setup(F2 key I think) or boot menu (F9 key I think)

If the computer boot from CD, probably you have a software problem, else your drive is damaged.


Good luck.
