Laptop cd/dvd drive broke

The CD/DVD in my Acer Aspire laptop appears to be broken. I can no longer burn with it, and windows does not recognize a disk inside of it. Can I purchase a replacement part and install it myself? How much do these parts ususally cost? Thanks Kenn

Laptops are notorious for the air-flow conditions. The fan will draw air where it can find it, and place contaminants on the lens(s). Personally I've experienced this across a variety of mfg's product.

 You've already tried using a "cleaner" cd (usually a waste), instead get a GOOD optical cleaning cloth and cleaning solution. Then CAREFULLY clean the lens(s) (use minimal solution!). This usually corrects the issue. If you don't feel confident in this, then find a local car stereo repair facility, and for a few bucks they'll clean it-hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5100 no longer "sees" its cd/dvd drive- anywhere.

You can check the BIOS to see if the drive is recognized and even attempt to boot from the drive using a bootable CD to verify it is functional (if using the Windows disc - just verify it reads - DO NOT REINSTALL)

If the drive works use the following to get the drive back in Windows:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

Cd/dvd drive problem

Try with another brand of disk; the Matsushita UJ870 drive of our 5315 burn my Sony CD's but not my Philips CD's (my Compaq V2617LA with an older Matsushita UJ840 drive has burned Phillips CD's in the last two monts)... Remember: CD and DVD lassers are different. I think because of that, i haven't see problems with Sony, Philips and Samsung DVD's... only with CD's...
