Feel free to place all the stuff you want on the D drive, if there are some acer files, may be better to leave them alone, but generally there should be noting important there. so go ahead, if you want to play it safe don't erase anything thats already there.

How to replace dvd/cd rewriter on a acer 5100


There is one screw in the bottom of the laptop, might have a engraved icon of a disc next to it. If you look at the cd drive, imagine where the drive would end. you can take a cd and place it agains the bottom of the laptop where the cd rom drive is, the screw will be at the other end of the drive.

Well this picture will probably explain it better than a thousand words.

I have an acer machine that went down on me. The


Sounds like the hard drive boot sector is damaged. You can remove the drive and put in into an external casing and via a USB connection get the data off onto another working computer. Then (if my diagnoses is correct) you can get a new hard drive for the laptop and install windows etc again and be mobile again

HELP - My Hard Drive Died - HELP


Put the laptop in the freezer for a couple hours. i heard that can temporarily fix a problem with a Hard Drive. If it works then quickly back up the Hard Drive and get a new one and upload everything onto that one. Caution: i dont know any side effects of freezing the laptop so freeze it at your own risk.

My Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


If it works on another computer then either the ide cable in the acer is bad/loose at either end or the ide controller on the motherboard is bad. I would try a known good ide cable first as if this is the problem it is fixable alot cheaper than a motherboard. Hope this helps.

Acer 5100 Dosent turn on


My Acer 5100 did this awhile back and it ended up being the motherboard. I don't know if your laptop is still under warranty like mine was at the time but if it is Acer will fix it for free. You need to contact them through their website to do some troubleshooting and they will probably RMA it. Before you send it, take the hard drive out, connect it to an external drive case and pull off all your personal data. They will wipe the drive before they send it back. Good luck!

When i turn on my laptop it's starts loading the windows xp and all of a sudden it freeze. And also i wanna know where i can buy a new motherboard for my acer laptop aspire 5100.


You might want to go into the bios to turn off halt on all errors,except keyboard.also pressing escape befor it freezes may let you see what is causing the problem while booting up. Maybe come up in safe made,to eliminate lots of taxing stuff. unhook any new stuff you may still have attached. also make sure cd or dvd disk drives are empty.Good luck!
