Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop ?

Brand new Acer PC was working fine but now it will not read or recognize any cd's.


Answers :

Try using a boot cd during startup. It's possible your CD ROM software is messed up. If you can boot up with a live cd for example (Knoppix) or a windows xp cd then you might need to reload your cd rom drivers.
