Make sure that the dvd drive is getting enough power test all leads that are attached to the dvd including electical extensions and make sure they have a secure connection or just replace them there might be bad/faulty or the drivers may have been corrupted or you might have a virus run your antivrus program you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd burner then plug them back in this should activate the found new hardware wizard or you might have to uninstall then reinstall your DVD/CD or uninstall the driver then reinstall for this device Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

I have an acer travelmate 2300, i cant format it because the hard drive cannot detect by the computer, what is the probelm?


If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk then it is most likely faulty.
To get your Acer operating again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Acer's device drivers and your programs.
You candownload the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

Acer aspire 3050 keyboard not working


You could try an external USB keyboard to see if the keyboard issue is the keyboard only and not the system. Verify the DVD drive is properly in place if it is externally removable. The system will most likely need service.

New Laptop


The laptop has an eRcovery partition the will restore it to original condition.

Acer eRecovery


At the Acer splash screen, you can press Alt and F10 (at the same time you would press F2 to enter the BIOS) to bring up a DOS style version of eRecovery.
· The unit is able to reload Windows from this mode faster then from CD.
· The password by default is 000000 (6 zeros) and it is displayed when you are asked for the password.
· Users are able to change the password in this mode for eRecovery only.
· The system can recover from the hidden image on the hard drive (PQService partition) or from CD/DVD media.
· It is possible to reload from the factory style CDs/DVD or the snapshots that the Windows version of eRecovery creates.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
