My 3050 won't recognize it's CD ROM Driver

\015 I have ran into a forum previously that allowed me to delete somethings that I am not sure of that inturn allowed my CDROM to work again. After a while it stopped recognizing it so I did it again, and now it stop once more months later (now) and I lost the instructions that I received from that individual, any answers?

HI there,
\015\012I am assuming your using XP with SP2 already installed.....
\015\012
\015\012Try to uni-install the device thru your device manager.
\015\012
\015\012Go to START,
\015\012Then right click over MY COMPUTER
\015\012Select PROPERTIES
\015\012DEVICE MANAGER
\015\012Select your device from the list (once list is completely done)CD Rom
\015\012Right click REMOVE
\015\012Shut Down and Restart to save your settings,
\015\012When the computer restarts it will self install the device by auto recognising the device is present on start up,
\015\012There will be 3 icon ballons appear when its going the recognise/install process,
\015\012You must wait for the last balloon to tell you the device has been installed and ready for use,
\015\012
\015\012Two reasons.....
\015\012 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.
\015\0122. 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
\015\012
\015\012This has worked for XP and Vista so I beleive it should fix your problems.
\015\012The 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
\015\012
\015\012After the its installed the device and everythings working reboot the machine again to save your settings.
\015\012
\015\012My 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.
\015\012Please let me know if you need further help,
\015\012Thanks and good luck.
