Hi guys ,got an acer aspire 3500 with couple of probslems and was wondering if any of you might have some advice... Problem 1 CD drive does not read any cd's (or dvd's) although I can hear the drive spinning and it seems like it wants to read the disc but seems to be going round in circles (excuse the pun)!!!. Light comes on also on the cd tray. Problem 2 When I switch the laptop on it boots up normally and shows the Windows logo all nice and clear but when it loads the screen starts going haywire flickering and flashing.If I push down on the laptop near the keyboard left or right the screen comes back to normal.Think this must be a loose connection but was wondering if anyone knew where to start looking.Runs perfectly normal if I plug in external lead to TV. Many thanks,Tony.
