Is there a cd disk drive on the ES1-512 model no.MS2394 if so how do you open it if not can one be installed


Aspire ES1 512


Yes there is and it's actually a DVD Rewriter than doubles up as a CD Rewriter. Meaning that you can burn & read CD's & DVD's. There should be a button on either the left or right side of the laptop to open the drive. Looking at the pictures from the link, the drive is on the right side.

4 steps to reset lost Windows 7 password


Nowadays more and more people like to create passwords on Windows 7 PC. In fact, a Windows 7 password is a good way to protect your precious computer data from unauthorized users. Unfortunately, you can be easily locked out of computer as the Windows passwords are easily to be forgotten or lost due to various reasons. In order to regain access to your locked computer and your precious data on it, you need to reset Windows 7 password.

You may forget to create a Windows 7 password reset disk, but resetting Windows 7 password on your own without reinstalling computer is still not a big problem. Just follow the below 4 steps, then you can reset Windows 7 password.

Step 1: Pick one good Windows password recovery tool
To reset Windows 7 password by yourself, you need to use good Window password recovery software. See if the software can reset lost or forgotten Windows password for your Windows 7.Most of the Windows password recovery software available in the market support password recovery for most popular Windows operating systems, like Windows 7/ Vista/XP.
Then, select the appropriate edition of the Windows password recovery tool to reset Windows 7 password. Generally speaking, Windows password recovery tool has 2 or 3 different editions to reset lost Windows password. Take Windows Password Recovery for example, it has 3 editions.
Its Standard edition allows you to burn a bootable CD/DVD to reset lost Windows administrator and user password for Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000/NT while its Professional edition allows you to burn a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset Windows local password for Windows 7/Vista/XP/NT/ and Windows Server 2008/2003/2000. And Windows Password Recovery Enterprise enables you to burn a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset Windows domain password and Windows local password for all poplar Windows OS.

Step 2: Prepare a PC with driver and a bootable CD/DVD or USB drive
As your PC is locked and you are not able to log on it, you need to find another available computer to download and install the Windows password recovery you choose to burn a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset Windows 7 password. Please note the computer should have a driver. Both internal and external driver are Ok. Of course, the device - a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive- should also be prepared before starting to reset Windows 7 password.
Step 3: Burn a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset Windows 7 password
Once you choose the right recovery tool and the device, you can begin to burn an ISO image file to the device to reset Windows 7 password. Here I take Windows Password Recovery Professional for an example to show you the whole process, which is really simple in fact.
First select to burn an ISO image file to CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset Windows local password, then click Burn to start burning. Click Ok when the burning task is completed. It is very simple and just takes you a few seconds.
Step 4: Perform Windows 7 password reset with the burned CD/DVD or USB drive
When you have burned a CD/DVD or USB flash drive, you can reset Windows password simply with the burned CD/DVD. Insert the burned CD/DVD or USB flash drive in your locked computer and boot the locked PC from CD/DVD or USB. Then you can reset Windows 7 password under Windows PE. First choose the user name whose password you want to reset and click Reset button, and then click Ok to confirm and continue your operation. Click Ok when the password has been successfully reset.

With this Windows password recovery tool, you can rest lost password on Windows 7 in less than 5 minutes. Forgot Windows 7 password? Just try the steps above to reset Windows 7 password.

What is the Lifespan of CD Drives? I have an HP dv7 that seems like the cd rom is not communicating well with the machine. Could it be software related?


Burning CD-R or DVD-R shortens the life cycle of any CD-R or DVD-R drive, while reading is generally. If you have burnt 1 disc per day, it is not surprising your DVD-RW drive is worn out.

1 detail to take into consideration: if you use ReWritable media, change them from time to time. I thought my DVD-Recorder was dead as I got a lot of non responding issue with DVD+RW media (while my computer had no problem to read these media), and finally getting rid off the old media and taking newer DVD+RW media has given the DVD-Recorder 3 more years.

Why does my Compaq laptop burn only rewritable dvds


Find utility called 'cdgone'. Download it and save it to desktop.
Open device manager, and uninstall the dvd drive, and close the device manager. Run the 'cdgone' utility, and then reboot your computer. Try to burn discs again.

Why am I not able to click start burn


Maybe you have not put any items for it to burn. Also you have to make sure your DvD/CD drive has the ability to burn.

Look at your Cd/DvD Drive and see if you see something like Cdrw or DvDrw or the word Rewritable. If not your drive does not have the burn capability.

DVD appears as CD Drive

My dell d610 laptop has dvd/cd rw i want to know if this means i have dvd rw too if not what should i buy so that i will have dvd rw hopefully it will be something i just plug in this is my first computer...


Your built in CD Drive is a DVD player and regular CDR - CDRW burner, this means you cannot burn DVD's. To burn DVD's I would recommend you purchase an external DVD burner, here are some links to ones that are compatable to your computer.

Asus - Good Reviews

LITEON - Also has good Reviews
