Take the side off the case, it should be fairly easy to find the screws or knobs to unscrew to remove it. depending on the case type there are usually 4 screws holding the hard drive; 2 on either side, then you should be able to slide it out. you can look here http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_8244498_install-drive-acer-aspire-desktop.html for reference

This is a problem with the power supply. Bring the computer back and exchange it immediately- trying to fix it will result in your warranty being "voided" or cancelled.

When you get your replacement PC, make sure you follow the "quick start" guide.

SOURCE: how do you remove the

Hi, I will talk you through the steps of taking a hard drive out of any desktop computer.
Precautions: do not touch any of the inside circuitory as this can damage the computer via static
Lay the computer on a flat surface with plenty of room and locate the screws which need to be unscrewed to open the case
Once you have got the case open you will need to locate the hard drive, the easiest way to do this is by looking for a red cable known as an ATA cable
It will look something like this http://www.consolemaniacs.co.uk/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=114
Follow this cable from the motherboard until you find the hard drive, it should look something like this http://tinyurl.com/6jzndw5
Once you have located this, it will be screwed into the case, you will need to unscrew it and this is how you remove it, you will need to unplug any attachments the hard drive has to the motherboard (insides of the computer). Once it has been unscrewed and unplugged remove the hard drive from the inside and that is the job done.
I hope this helps if you have anymore questions please ask.

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance


That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

Hi i m hems i m upgrading hard disk on my ( acer aspire 1641nwlmi ) laptop hard disk is 160 gb but it's not detecting my new hard disk , my new hard is ok but i have quistion 160 gb is supporting my laptop...


The Aspire 1641 is supplied with a 80Gb hard drive. If the new 160Gb hard drive is not detected in the BIOS then the BIOS cannot support this size hard drive.
Check your manual/specification to see the maximum size hard drive it can support.
You can install the 160Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Graphic card for acer aspire 1641


HI Denis,

Unfortunately you cannot change the video card an your laptop, you see its built into the motherboard. There are some high end laptops that use a MXM? slotthat it is possible to change cards and even then its still iffy.
the only real hardware changes you can make to your laptop are the battery, the RAM, and the hardrive.
