Acer aspire 5100 cd-rom issue

I have a very anoying problem with my laptop,
when i start up my laptop, pop in the cd, it does not recognize a cd and does not do auto play, if i look in device manager it doesnt even see a cd-rom installed, so i restart the computer, and still does it, then one day i try it again and all of a sudden it sees it and auto plays fine just how it should,
as long as i leave the laptop on its fine, but as soon as i put it to sleep or shut it down and start it up again its gone, iv tryed finding new software with no joy,

iv tryed uninstalling it, then switching it off, then on again so it auto loads the hardware, and sometimes it works,
and even tryed another cd-rom from my spare laptop, which worked, but only the once, im out of ideas, hope you can help

    The exact same thing happens to me all the time. I don't have a solution I need one. As far as I can tell the only way out of this is to leave the PC world and switch to Mac. Vista is trashy anyway.

    I have same problem, 2 weeks now I have no cdrom shwon in my devices or my computer. When inserting a disk it makes all the usual noises as if it is going to work but then nothing. What a pile of s*!t

    I have exactly the same problem now for over a week, just one of many regular malfunctions using Aspire 5100 and vista. Neve again but in the meantime I have no DVDR/CD drive

    EXACT SAME PROBLEM! Why is it that ACER (whom I thought a pretty dependable company, up till now) does not recognize this as an issue and post a fix? If ANYONE has a solution, please let me know! Thanks!

    same problem, but I have had this computer for over a year and a half and it just began doing this. IThe drive has always been half *** when it comes to ripping scratched cds. Has anyone contacted acer?

No dvd/cd rom icon


From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.

Acer aspire cd/dvd drive not working


Most likely if you have to use a paperclip to open the door, your drive is bad and needs to be replaced. They are pretty easy to install, directions depends on if you have a desktop or laptop Aspire.
