Can you give a location of R138?
Is it on the easy side? E.q. the side of the motherboard wich is accessible by removing the bottom plate? I see Q24, located close to CPU. If possible, post a picture of R138, with some components visible.

Hello Keaqanvermaa,

'.iso' is an image format. To open an iso file you need to install any one of the softwares called 'magic iso, ultra iso, power iso etc.
After insatlling any one of these software the .iso files icon changes into a recognized iso file format. You can now double click to open to and view whats its contents are, if its a software iso file you have to extract it first to a folder.
Good luck

please rate if this solution was helpful for you!

Arcade Deluxe is nothing more than a **** media center with a useless media player in it - get rid of it. If you want to play BR disks there are 2 options: either install a good codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5748&s=775 an use WMP or install and use VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Your DVD is not Blue Ray capable. You would need to purchase a Blue Ray DVD player for your laptop, just having the software does not allow you to read them.

That machne does not have a bluray drive & that is the simple reason why you can not play a blu ray disc. This is what your drive supports.
Plays Standard or multiregion DVD's & Audio CD's. Records DVDs 8x & CDs 24x & Dual Layer Super Multi. No Bluray or HD DVD,

If you were sold the machine as a bluray laptop then take it back & demand your refund.

you need a valid windows key to run windows 10. if you upgraded from win 7 your key would be valid. its a trip to microsoft to validate win 7 key or new key purchase.

I contacted ACER Tech services with this same issue, and they told me that it would need to be repaired. I have found that if you turn off the monitor, depress the far left button and power back on, the OSD doesn't display until you release the button. Not ideal but workable, Especially if your Monitor is out of warrantee like mine.

If your system came with Windows 10 the System Maker can supply the disk for a small cost since you already own Windows.

Boot with a Installation or Repair disc or USB drive - issue these from the Command
Prompt and hit ENTER after each.

C:

bootrec /fixmbr

bootrec /fixboot

bootrec /scanos

bootrec /rebuildbcd

not sure whether its a problem with the drive or a problem with windows media player. Take a can of air and blow some onto the laser of the dvd drive, this will make sure that there is no dirt or dust on the laser.

Once you do that put the dvd back into the drive. Give it about 20-30 seconds and then see if it tries to pull up the movie if it does and your getting errors from windows media player then we know that the drive is working cause its seeing the movie properly.

At that point, I would suggest downloading the latest version of windows media player.

Go here to download the latest version of Windows Media Player 11.

After doing that and installing it, try playing your movie again, in fact try several movies just to make sure. Windows Media player may want to download Codecs, if it does then let it. This will allow it to recognize dvds better and quicker.

If the codecs are updated and you still can't get it to see and play movies then I would suggest using a different dvd player such as Cyberlink PowerDVD located on this page:

Hi You can use your windows media player instead, all you have to do is to download the klite codec and install it to your computer..Visit this websitehttp://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_mega_codec_pack.htm

Once your on the page , click and download the Download K-Lite Mega Codec located on the bottom of the page

After you download the klite mega codec to your computer, you need to install it.After installing the klite codec you don't need to use the real player anymore.You can use your windows media player to play DVD
