Acer TravelMate 530 - CD Drive Upgradeable?

Have purchased an elderly laptop as above. The CD drive appears bent, CD's at times can be heard rubbing? against the inside, is seen to be not level in it's site. Is it possible to upgrade to a DVD-R & CD-RW drive for this laptop? Or am I just dreaming?

I cannot find the recovery media download for a Acer travelmate 290 laptop

relic PCs with CDrom and no DVD drive ! 15 years old today, Id trash it and upgrade. Buy loptop 2010 or newer, and WIN! well we test the hDD first. installing any OS made is going to fail if the HDD is bad. we test the hdd, in all cases, or a full day can be wasted doing the impossible. thick of HDD as bucket. some are good, some are dead.(missing ) or some leak. like bucket with rust holes in the bottom, see? test 1 is does the hdd spin, heard? test 2, does the HDD show up in your BIOS. if not, it is dead. test 3, if above ok we run linux boot media,in demo mode. and then run the DISKTEST. with no DVD drive, you need to use old linux, boot CD. if the PC was upgraded to DVD use the DVD boot. http://www.pcdied.com/linux.html#Noobs

I would recommend using your recovery cd to solve the issue. if you don't have one then it would be best to do a fresh install of the operating system from another cd. if you need to save your files you will have to remove your hard drive and connect it to another computer via usb hard drive enclosure to save your info then place the hard drive back into the laptop and install a fresh copy of windows

How to reformat my laptop? I don't have Cd rom, no floppy disc, its notbooting in usb flash drive, i dont have external optical drive. Whatshould I do? Thanks in advanced, acer 340t travelmate

If you could go to Avira and download there rescue disk on the flash drive, plug in the flash drive while the lap is off and start it with flash in.

Then you can run the rescue in dos( dos is before windows starts)
You said you could not because of windows, this rescue will scan
the entire hard drive, and if you have something like a rootkit, virus, trojan, Avira will kill it. Avira is the second best anti-virus software
on the planet.

Tap f8 when you lap starts to bring up the boot menu, and pray
that the flash drive is listed.

Wont start up

Sounds like you have a CD or DVD in your CD or DVD drive, or if you have a floppy drive, a floppy in it.

If these are empty, Put in your recovery CD and see if it reads that.
