I sorted the driver for the cddvd rom and have gone through the installation line for line trying to workout what each abbrev. means but get to the end it it says it cant find the setup files yet my mate can load it up from his bios , do you think its an acer thing or a user thing.........

Any help would be appreciated as i float around out here in huge swells twidling my thumbs and giving myself headaches from trying to work it out

Thanks for any suggestions
