Hard Drive Issue

I have the Acer aspire 5000, and I have tried several times to format the HD and replace the OS, but when I goto setup, the screen states that there is no HD in the computer. Any ideas? The HD trys to boot, but then stalls and repeats several times with no luck.

Replace hd with used hd.


You just do not drop in a replacement hard drive from another working computer and expect it to work. The replacement hard drive is now in a "foreign" environment and often will not work to protect the existing operating system. If you have the operating system disks you may be able to do a "repair" operation where the OS is given a chance to adjust to is new environment and install new drivers. If not, then all you can do is format the replacement unit and re install all of the software; everything is one drive is lost and you start from square one.

You need to format your hard disk. Please note that formatting will erase all you data from the hard disk and all the software including the Operating system.

If you have your OS master CD you can insert it in the cd/dvd drive and restart the laptop. This will detect the OS CD and try to install it. In the installation process there is an option "Format your hard drive". You should select that option. Then it will format, mark the bad sectors, create a new boot sector and install the OS. You will be just fine.

I have an acer aspire 6930 after a little over a year the hard drive crashed. I bought a new hard drive and also purchased the receovery discs from Acer but I keep receiving an error code restore failed...


Sorry you are having trouble. I can help you with this. The "Format" command has been around for a long time. It used to be included on the start disks that came with Dos, Windows 95, and Windows 98. Now that the Operating Systems (OS) are much bigger and most pcs do not have floppy drives we have to use other methods to get to the format command. Now comes the hard part. Format is a DOS command. To use you have to be at the c: prompt. It is still included in most OS's but the trick is to get to it. Try this: Boot to the CD that contains your OS. Then search the disk for the format command. Once you know you have it you will have to pick the option to goto the recovery console. Here you will have to have the administrator password to continue. If you need more info please ask

Acer aspire 5000 laptop. black screen says NTLDR missing, press any key to restart..but it will not do anything just stays on the black screen with the message


try repairing the OS with the installation disk. if this doesn't work, try formatting the hard-drive, but remember to connect the hard-drive to another computer and backup your important files. this is the simplest way to solve it, as trying to restore the system manually requires lots of command lines and a system boot disk.

Acer aspire 1 will not load XP


If this a new drive you need to prepare it using a hard drive utility before windows will recognise it. The drive manufacturer may provide this for you. Maxblast is one such program as is Datalifeguard from Western Digital.
