HI there,
I am assuming your using XP with SP2 already installed.....

Try to uni-install the device thru your device manager.

Go to START,
Then right click over MY COMPUTER
Select PROPERTIES
DEVICE MANAGER
Select your device from the list (once list is completely done)CD Rom
Right click REMOVE
Shut Down and Restart to save your settings,
When the computer restarts it will self install the device by auto recognising the device is present on start up,
There will be 3 icon ballons appear when its going the recognise/install process,
You must wait for the last balloon to tell you the device has been installed and ready for use,

Two reasons.....
1.The processor is fast and with good ram (2 Slots - Max 2GB) would love to do the work straight away but the more commands you give it the more likely the information going to the wrong places.
2. Too many programs starting at the wrong times or the same times and in the wrong order seem to create conflicts and this process seems to apply the brakes for lots of machines so let the motors warm up before you drive it hard,lol

This has worked for XP and Vista so I beleive it should fix your problems.
The operating systems come preloaded with their own drivers and some smart features to quickly sort out any issues , The drivers are also on the disk that the computer came with or on a back up on your hard drive,(maybe)or download able from the www.acer.com/downloads

After the its installed the device and everythings working reboot the machine again to save your settings.

My Mother has the same model and I have those disks here somewhere after resetting her machine for her and can check them out if you not able to sort out your mission.
Please let me know if you need further help,
Thanks and good luck.

This has been a common windows issue. I'm sure that this will solve your problem. You can go to this link, http://tinyurl.com/toshibadvd, download the registry file and run it. After that, just restart your computer and it should be good to go.

If you're not sure and is worried about security since this is messing with the registry, you can just click on this microsoft link where it explains and gives you detailed instructions on how to manually edit the registry and fix the problem. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461.

This is typically the same thing, the first one is just a shortcut on how to do it. Just a reminder, EDIT THE REGISTRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

Hp DeskJet Printer 3050 driver not working with Windows 7?


Check how many printers are installed, have you got a "Ghost " printer.

Go to device manager, then printer queues and delete any surplus printers.

OR remove all of them and re-install the printer.

Bd rom wont eject


If it does not eject, how does it open?

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

My hp pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP installed will not allow me to load a golf game from a CD Rom I purchased some 14 years ago. I used to have this installed a nd played regularly on a previous computer.


The game may be not supported with the current Operating System Perhaps!!! What was your old computer's Operating system? And since the CD-ROM is 14 years old does it has too many scratch?? These days computer CD/DVD drives will never read the disc if they are scratched...

Finally, when you try installing the game, do you encounter any error message? if yes please post it....always remember if your posting your problem in forum, make sure that you provide all information about the issue.

My DVD/CD rom player suddenly not recognized


You may have to take out and put it back in. Make sure you this with the laptop off and then start after you insert the optical drive back in. There should be a switch or one screw that will allow you to remove the cd drive. If all else fails, try reinstalling the driver as well. If after all this you still have issues, you may need to replace the drive.

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update

Here is the download link
