Question about Acer Ferrari 3200 Notebook
Hi I have a recent problem where the CD/DVD drive is not ejecting discs correctly, it will probably take about 6 up to 10 attempts to get the disc to eject. It seems to me to be an slight alignment problem is there any adjustment to try this ? I have been offered a fully functional CD/DVD drive from a Ferrari 3400 unit will this be a direct replacement for the one fitted to my 3200 unit ? Can you advise of how to remove the CD/DVD drive and the part number for the correct replacement Thanks Peter Mallinson www.sheenview.com Appreciate any answers being copoed by email to [email protected]
This is a hardware problem and you will need to replace the drive. The hinge screws need to be removed in order for the keypad to lift up. Under the keypad should have at least 2 screws holding the dvd rom. Remove them. If you turn over the laptop, check to see if there are any screws needing to be removed before taking out the drive. If the connection and physical size of the drive of the ferrari 3400 dvd drive is the same as this, it should work as a replacement. Make sure you check the port of the dvd drives that they are the same, as you don't want to force it and bend any pins.

You will have to remove the underside panels and remove the base from the notebook, as the acer notebooks tend not to have "hot swapable" drives, but as long as the dvd drive fits into the body recess it should be ok. There are no replacements shown on the web site, so emailing them for the part number may be a good idea. Have you tried uninstalling the dvd drive in device manager and then restarting your pc and letting windows re install it and try again.
