Windows 7 CD/DVD Error (code 52) - Won't display in Computer or read discs.
I have a Acer Aspire 5732Z with windows 7 and the CD/DVD disc tray doesn't work.
It doesn't appear in my Computer and when a disc is entered it makes the normal sounds but does nothing.
I have tried many discs but none work.
I went to the device manager and under DVD/CD-ROM drives the device HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GT31N is displayed with an error symbol.
Under this devices status section a message:
"Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code
In driver details under the Driver tab it shows 5 drivers 3 of which are not digitally signed:
I have tried uninstalling the device and rebooting several times but each time the drivers same problem exists.
I have also tried to press F8 on startup but this does literally nothing (doesn't even open up a menu).
I have run the device troubleshooter but it finds no problems.
I have tried to update the drivers but they are all up to date.
I have updated windows.
I have run the Microsoft Fix It tool which found no problems.
Really I don't know what else to try...
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
