"but if i take the hard drive out and place it in my other acer 7520 it work perfectly."

Thought the issue was with the CD-Rom? If so, then you'd expect the hard-drive to work in both machines. Could be that the drive has failed or needs a good lens-cleaning. If it has an LED on it and it lights-up normally, then quite possibly it just can't read the disc (assuming this occurs on all discs)...
