If I click on Devices and Printers, there is a triangle error box showing against my computer name. If I right click and click on troubleshoot it says there is a problem with the driver for the CD-ROM drive. Reinstalling the driver might fix the problem.
I then click on Apply This Fix, it searches for a short time and then it comes up and says troubleshooting was unable to fix the issues found.
I have an Acer T180 and today my CDRom will not work. I get an error code that says there is a problem in the registry, code 19. I read elsewhere that someone found a fix for this from Microsoft. Does anyone know about this? Is this commom Acer Problem? Would appreciate any help or ideas.
First thing I would try would be to open device manager (Control Panel>Device Manager) and see if there is an entry for DVD/CD-ROM devices. If then open and oubleclick on the device to open Properties.
1) Record any error code shown
2) Select Driver and then Uninstall
3) Reboot and let it think for a while
4) See if the CD is back.
