I recommend you go and check the msconfig and see if there are unnecessary startup items.

Vista:
Start
Msconfig

XP;
Start
Run
msconfig

Can i put a hdd from a aspire 5610 in to a5580


1) Acer Aspire 5610 series Notebook PC, uses a standard sized
SATA laptop harddrive.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Aspire-5610-SATA-Hard-Drive-Caddy-w-Screws-/380170405559

[ Standard size laptop harddrive; 2.5 inches across in width. ( 2 and a half inches, or 63.5mm ]

2) Acer Aspire 5580 uses an IDE (PATA) harddrive, that is standard laptop size.

http://www.upgradecomputermemory.com/ram.cfm//memory/a/Acer/AcerAspire-Notebook-Series/Aspire5580Notebook/80GB-Notebook-Hard-Drive-for-the-Acer-Aspire-5580-Notebook.html

[ Scroll down to the subheading - Interface: ATA-100 ]

It isn't just the harddrive caddy that is different.

The two technologies are different, IDE (PATA) and SATA, therefore the interface is also.

[ Interface:
In this example I am referring to the pin connector, the harddrive plugs into ]

Parallel ATA,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA#IDE_and_ATA-1

Serial ATA,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

Adapter for the SATA harddrive (5610) to the IDE (PATA ) interface in the 5580 laptop?
Won't work.

1) The technologies are different.
2) There is a Chipset, or more than one, for this bus controller. The 5580 doesn't have a SATA version.

( Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit )

This would make one think, "Hey, I'll just buy an IDE (PATA) 2.5 harddrive."

Nope.

Once Windows Vista is installed it is a 'Bear' to write XP over it.
There is a Correct procedure. This is left to an experienced person.
(Even an experienced tech may have problems)

Also, IF you do get XP to write over Vista, you may be required to Activate again. (Not register, activate)

To explain further;
When Windows is installed on a computer, hash values are assigned to certain major hardware components.

Some examples may be the Processor, Motherboard, Harddrive, and graphics chipset.

More specifically for the Motherboard, it is the motherboard chipset, and the BIOS program. (Version and date)

Change any two of these hardware components, and Windows may want to be activated again.


Suggest new IDE (PATA) harddrive for the 5580, and use the Restoration Disk.

Don't have one?
Computer manufacturers stopped including a Restoration CD Disk.
(I do believe they have started again, though)

Many users felt uncomfortable trying to repair their computer, took it to a shop, and never bothered using the disk.
Many lost the disk.

Let's say the disk cost around $1.
Take that times 50,000 computers or so. The computer manufacturer is saving money, not including a disk the majority, seems to not want to use.

The computer manufacturers started including a restoration partition, on the harddrive. (That's nice unless you have graphics problems, and can't see what is going on)

When the computer is new, and the owner starts the computer for the first time, there is a pop up asking if you wish to make a Backup.
THIS, is your Restoration Disk.

The new owner is ONLY asked ONE time. If the owner clicks on 'Never show this again', the opportunity is GONE.

What to do?
New IDE (PATA) harddrive, see what it costs a shop to put Vista (Same version) on it.

OR,
Buy a new Vista, or Windows 7 genuine copy, and install it.
HOWEVER, before trying to install Win7, make SURE there are drivers for Win7 available.

If not, DO NOT install Win7.

(Microsoft makes ONE master disk of an Operating System.
{ And version } From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer )

Summary:
1) New IDE (PATA) harddrive
2) Have Vista installed, or see if drivers are available, and install Win7.

For clarification on anything I have stated, or additional questions, please post in a Comment.

Previous owners password wont allow me access the acer 5580 laptop, how do i access thanks david


Hi dcalchin...

1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.
