How can I replace a Seagate hard disk with a Hitachi one where the pin connections are different? Both of them have come directly out of 2 Acer 6533 laptops.

If they are both the same type of drive, they are compatible. Take the drives out of the caddies and check the type. Probably SATA drives.

My Acer Aspire V5-571 does not load up it shows acer screen when turning on the laptop then loading floating ball comes on screen for a few seconds then black screen ? can any one please help ?

Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Why is the screen white on my laptop

Hi There,
Ultimately I can help you much better with a model name/number of your laptop. However, here's a few things you can try -
1 - check to make sure it's not connected to any other video sources (all VGA/Docking Stations/HDMI/etc cables unplugged from the laptop)
2 - Remove the battery and power plug, and hold down the power button fro 60 seconds. Then reinsert the battery and plug and turn it on.
3 - Some laptops are prone to overheating, causing the video chips to degrade over time. This was a big problem with many HP, compaq, Asus, Acer, and Dell laptops. Check wikipedia for a list of prone laptops.If yours is on the list, it's toast.

Hi, i have a laptop, named Acer Aspire 4715z. In this few years, my laptop can run smoothly without any problem. But, last few days, the laptop cannot be turned on any more. I try to find how to repair it...

Try to hard reset the laptop first if that will help. Most of Acer laptop had the following hard reset: 1. Remove the battery and the power adaptor. 2. Press ESC or F2 key for about 2 minutes. 3. Then while continue pressing ESC or F2 key, plug the power adaptor and turn on to the power button. 4. If you able to see the bios or ACER logo then, you will be able to check the problem if it is on the harddisk, memory or your OS. PM me if any help.

We ran a typical Acer aspire one battery of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.
