I might have this wrong but i have never heard of "Dual hard drives" certainly not in a laptop. Have you just updated to vista with this new laptop? if so then i know where your confusion comes from.Vista in all its magical wisdom has decided to hide half of the hard drive and store things for periods of time just incase you ruin the rest of it.In short it has a massive bank for things like system restore and your favourite pictures. You cannot partition drive c. in effect they have partitioned it already and if you gain access to the other half and re-configure it and it goes badly wrong,windows will accept no responsibillity for you ignoring the countless "are you sure you want to........" & "Allow this & Permit that"

My Acer 5315 Data as only 3.01Gb free of 32.5 Gb do I need a New Hard Drive to get more Ram


More RAM will not help because your RAM is temporary memory. You can uninstall the software you dont use or backup your documents/pictures/music to an external source and delete them from your hard drive. Another option is to use the Disk Cleanup utility to rid your system of temporary files that are taking up space or get an external hard drive to backup your files to.

I am trying to buy a replacement hard drive for my acer aspire 3500... what type of hard drive am i looking for ? is it the hdd ide 60 gb... can i get bigger gbs..... also can i use an stat converter on...


You would have to buy a IDE/ATA 2.5" Hard Drive at 4200 rpm.

You can buy a 80GB one here.

The model number is Seagate ST9808210A

Its about $56 dollars.

You can not use a sata converter on the motherboard.

Acer aspire one AOA110 tries to start up but keeps looping back to the startup screen. Goes throught a lenghty disk check and goes back to startup screen.


Possible hard drive errors I would say.
Try and start it from your restore disk or your System disk and back up your data them replace the hard drive.
Hope that helps.

USB Port speed is not stable


The speed at which data is transferred via USB 2.0 all comes down to what the read/write speed of the device you are sending the data to/from is.
 
USB 2.0 sends data at 480mbps but you will need a storage device that can read/write at 480mbps to get that speed.
If your device can only read/write at lets say 200mbps than that’s the transfer speed that will be used.
 
The read/write speed of memory sticks and external hard drives very a lot and this is what will be causing your speed differences.
 
Hope this helps,

I have an Acer Aspire with two hard drives, can I move all of my music?


Its not two hardrives, its duo processor, and two cache chips

check the size of data and acer drives (right click and properties, check size)
If they are large should be able to store copy of music

go into the limewire download folder, should be in my computer -> c: -> program files -> Limewire -> shared folder - copy files (edit select all, edit copy or ctrl + left clikc to individually select)
then paste to new directory or folder (right click empty sapce of folder & left click paste

same for Itunes - locate where files are saving to then just copy paste from one location to another

should effect the programs from working, unless You delete files

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!


The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!
