Acer Ferrari 3200 Internal Hard Disc Replacement

I would appreciate any advice on how to get into the Aer 3200 to replace the hard disc drive, I'm doing this due to problems being experienced with the drive presently fitted but also to up grade to a 7200 rpm drive of bigger capacity
Replies copied to my private mail would be much appreciated

Hi, can i install a 720 GB internal hard disk for my acer veriton? my present configuration are windows 7 pro,32 bit 160 GB HDD. thanks in advance.


I found a pdf manual here and it shows that this computer does not have SATA ports, but does have 2 IDE ports, so if it's an IDE hard drive you want to install then you should be able to. However, your 2nd IDE port is likely used by a cd/dvd rom drive, so unless you are replacing the hard drive rather than adding one, you would need to remove the disc drive. There are very affordable external usb disc drives available.

Hello, how can i get my Acer Ferrari 3200 to see the full 320 Gig Hard drive, at the moment it will only see 128 gigs.


Open your partition manager. Check if there are partitions other than the 128Gb detected. If there are others, you can create a new partition for those unpartitioned space

My acer aspire 4720Z is reporting a smart event and that the hard drive may fail. what is your advice? what should i do?


The smart software is useful in evaluating the performance of the hard drive, if you have sensitive data I recommend backing up the information on a external hard drive, or cd/dvd disc, or a memory stick, and consider replacing your hard drive in your laptop.

Hard Drive media Problem :S


Presumably, you have an "internal" hard-drive that the BIOS is detecting.

If it is the _only_ disk-drive in your computer, remove it,
and temporarily connect it as a "slave" drive in some other computer.
Then:

Click: Start
Click: Control Panel
Click: Classic View
Click: Administrative Tools
Click: Computer Management
Click: Storage
Click: Disk Management (Local)

Does the drive show there? Is it listed as "Healthy" ?
Does it have a drive-letter assigned?

The headphone jack is soldered directly to the motherboard. finding a new one and getting it soldered on is the only option. As to the dvd I would remove it (one screw holds it in either on the bottom or under the keyboard) finding the model number and ordering a new one on ebay

Acer ferrari 3200 pc notebook problem


Hello. Vista needs a repair. You will want to start by putting in your own vista disc or borrowing one from someone. If your laptop isn't booting from the disc, then enter the bios (by hitting f2 or f12 usually) at bootup and select the DVD/CD rom drive to boot first. When the vista disc loads you will want to select recovery tools. Then select "startup repair". That should fix your problem.

Ferrari Acer 3200 Cd/DVD Drive Eject Problems


This is a hardware problem and you will need to replace the drive. The hinge screws need to be removed in order for the keypad to lift up. Under the keypad should have at least 2 screws holding the dvd rom. Remove them. If you turn over the laptop, check to see if there are any screws needing to be removed before taking out the drive. If the connection and physical size of the drive of the ferrari 3400 dvd drive is the same as this, it should work as a replacement. Make sure you check the port of the dvd drives that they are the same, as you don't want to force it and bend any pins.
