My 17 inch Acer has a failing DVDRW. It does the same. For now we pull the DVDRW out while we ponder if we want to replace it or get a new laptop.
BEWARE THAT LAPTOPS are proving to be 4 year devices. Many can't accept this but the proof is simple. Look at the failures.
About registry software. The consensus of the moderators is these are junk. Great way to corrupt an OS. If we lose the OS due to this, we reload the machine.
i have acer 5520 laptop 3 year old.
from many times dvd drive shows and unshows in my computer. i thought dvd driver problem. i tried one of driver ditect softwear or registery clean up software .
that software asked me to save old registries as back up and i saved it on d: drive then i let it to search for registery and showed 12 earror in reg. anyhow i wasnt able to delete it bcz it was without licence software so i restore my saved registeries from d: drive from by same software.
suddenly my laptop shutdown and didnt start after.

I SAW FAN MOVES WITHOUT RESTART AND MY DVD DRIVE SHOWS MOVING WITH BLINKING LIGHTS. BUT EVEN WITH alt+f10. i cant get bios window.
