Hi,
If you have reinstalled windows, on this hardrive using a different computer, it would not load into windows on the nortino 6770, because the windows now has the settings compatible with the other computer not this machine.
To get around this problem, you would have to reinstall windows, by placing the haddrive in the 6770 only. To do this , you can either copy the contents of the windows cd , to a flash drive or pen drive ,and then connect the same to the USB port of the laptop.
The other way , is connect an external USB cd drive and install the same.


Best of luck

Pardon my ignorance but i am just a beginner.Can i watch a movie cd on my new Acer Laptop and if so what are the steps? Unfortunately no manual came with the laptop.Thank you!


Put the CD in the optical drive of the Acer laptop.

{ CD/DVD drive. Just push the button on the outside of the drive, and the optical drive tray will come out partway. Then Gently pull the tray out all the way.

Close the optical drive tray. (Gently push the tray back into the laptop)
If after a few seconds the movie doesn't start, go to My Computer, and DOUBLE-click on the drive letter associated with the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

(May be drive letter D: or E:}

[ Windows XP:
Left-click on Start, then My Computer

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Computer,
{The Windows logo button took the place of Start ]


If this doesn't do it, post back in a Comment.
(Believe upper right of your page is the blue Comment 'button')

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

State the Model Number of your Acer laptop, and I will give you a link to a free User Manual, from Acer Support.

( The Model Number is on the bottom of the laptop in a white sticker. It is above the Serial Number.
Do Not give out the Serial Number on a public forum such as this. Only to an authorized Acer dealer, or repair shop. S/N = Serial Number )

Acer aspire 5517 is having problems loading the Operating system. when it try's to load it comes to a black screen that says that there is no bootable device connected. i restarted the computer and enabled...


have you tried looking for a windows label on the laptop that will tell you what version of windows is on it

The fact you are seeing two hard drives is probably because it is partitioned. The hard drive you tried to boot from to repair it , that is the system recovery partition the other partition is where your windows is installed


try pressing the ALT key & F10 together immediately after turning the laptop on

This should invoke the recovery partition to restore windows back to how you got it from the factory


NOTE THIS WILL DESTROY ALL DATA THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY ON THE COMPUTER


so anything on it will be wiped and it will be as you got it when it was purchased

If this helped you please vote for me

P.S. Other people please note how the poster explained there problem, in great detail and not just something like my laptop wont work

I have a Vostro 1500 Dell laptop running Windows XP and just recently my CD/DVD drive has stopped working. I was wondering if I should reload my drivers and which ones I should download. Thanks, Mike...


There aren't specific drivers for a CD/DVD drive, they came built in the windows installer. If you have problems with you CD/DVD drive, you will have to change it. It's very easy, you won't have to dissamble the laptop. You can see on youtube how to replace a CD/DVD drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Nj_sizEBw8&feature=related. There are CD/DVD drivers for 10$ on second hand.

A disk read error occured and keep on re-start


Please check that the hard disk is connected properly. If you know that the hard disk is working, check whether it is detected or not. If it's not detected, you'll need to recheck it again with the power supply. If possible, try it to another Laptop so that you can make sure that Hdd isn't the culprit. In case it's detected and the problem still persists, repair the operating system installation, this will definitely solve your problem. Good luck.

I brought a toshiba from the pawn shop and i tried to change from windows xp to windows vista how can i find a hard drive disk to install windows vista


You don't need to replace the Hard drive in the laptop, you can usually upgrade, or install vista from the CD-ROM / DVD-Rom.

If your laptop does not have a DVD drive to install vista, you may use file sharing to install it from another computer on the network. To do this follow these steps:

1) Place the Vista DVD in second computer
2) right-click on the DVD-drive that has the Vista DVD in it, and select " Share..."
3) You may need to press the "Advanced sharing" button to enable sharing, if so, do that, and just hit the " apply " button
4) OK out of all of those menues
5) on your laptop open " my computer" and click the " map network drive "
6) browse to the location of your drive on the other computer, and click " OK "
7) install Windows vista

If you do however need a new hard drive for your laptop, you can usually get them from any PC store such as Bestbuy, fry's, or online from places such as NewEGG.com, and Tigerdirect.com.

You will need to know what type of hard drive you have, and how to replace it. The manual for your laptop usually has this type of information.

SIDE NOTE:
When putting Vista on a laptop, be sure it meets the minimum requirements.

Xp won't load to hard Disk


Your RAM modules could be faulty or needs reseating. If reseating doesn't work, try swapping them around from the other laptop to see if that works.
