Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Need Help I have a Acer Aspire 5315-2077. My DVD/CD Drive would not work...i can not watch a movie on it or listen to a CD or install any programs on it....What should I do?......


Answers :

Try to re install the dvd programs and try also to clean the dvd head maybe there is a dust cover the lens of the dvd. Use dvd cleaner but if still not working try to clean it manually .If you can open the cover of the dvd clean the head lens by smooth cotton cloth or cotton bud don't use any liquid to avoid more damage of the lens. But if still not working i suggest that you need to buy a new dvd.
