Make sure the cd-rom drive is fully seated.Try pulling the drive out(if removable) and pushing back in. Sometimes they can get loose or not locked in. Does the drive open and close? If the drive ends up being bad you can replace it or buy a external drive.

Remove it and replace the CD ROM Drive. Check whether your Drive is being detected at BIOS. if detected let me know.

My satellite won't recognize a cd/dvd drive when I open up my computer there isn't a drive at all how can I fix this

If you don't have a cd/dvd rom drive installed on your laptop then of course your laptop would not reconize a cd/dvd rom. Is you laptop a Netbook, usually netbook does not come with a cd/dvd drive. To solve this case, you will need to buy an external cd/dvd drive and hook it up via USB.

I want to replace my acer laptop Cd rom , from where can i remove old one

Hi,

Here are the steps on how to remove your old CD-ROM so you can replece it.

Remove all power sources from the laptop. This should include not only the AC power adapter but also the battery.

Locate and remove the screw that locks the CD-ROM in place. Some laptops may have two screws that serve this function. In addition, many will also have a sliding switch that needs to be moved in order to remove the drive.

Slide the drive out gently. It should easily come out and does not require excessive force.

Replace the defective CD-ROM drive by sliding the new one gently into place in the laptop bay, the same way the old one came out. Again, excessive force should not be applied. The drive will only fit into the bay one way.

Secure the CD-ROM drive in place by replacing the screws that were removed previously. Reconnect all power supplies to the laptop and power it on. If the replacement CD-ROM is the exact same make and model as the previous one, the system will probably recognize it right away. If it is a different make or model it will prompt you to supply the appropriate software and drivers to optimize the use of the new CD-ROM drive.
