Acer can not read cd.

\015 My Acer aspire 5535 can not read any cd. It is new. l never tried any disc before. Do l need to change some setting? Thanks.\015

Answers :

If you machine is not reading any disk. it maybe there is a confict with the settings, o the dvd unit it not doing good contact with power or sata cables. if it is the second problem try to push the unit gently to the inside of computer.
\015\012if you have a probelm on the settings, you can uninstall drivers and let the pc find them by itself online.
\015\012to do this, i'm guessing you have WIN VISTA
\015\012click on start and TYPE in DEVICE MANAGER . it will show the little icon with the name on top of the start column. click on it,
\015\012here you will see a whole list of hardware components in your laptop.
\015\012go to dvd/cd drives click on + sing
\015\012it will show you the name, make and model of dvd drive, place you mouse on top and press right click.
\015\012a new small windows will pop out and it will have the UNINSTALL option. click on it., and a new open will ask you again ARE YOU SURE click ok. restart computer and hopefully it works. if any of this two solutions works, you have a foulty dvd drive and need a " deeper treatment "
\015\012if i was of any help don't forgot to rate me.
\015\012thank you
If you have a CD player/recorder it will not read a DVD, but, if you have a DVD player/recorder it will read both. To make sure you've got the most up to date drivers for your CD go to Windows update and type in your cd players model number found in the Device Manager in the control panel. Sometimes these software and hardware drivers get corrupted by security updates. Thank you, Dana
