Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
The machine does not always see disk 0. When machine starts up if it does not see the hard drive it beeps two times and asks me to touch f1 or f2. If I use f2 then sometimes it will boot afterwards. This is not always the case, if I replace the hard drive then it will work for a while then the same problem comes back. If I put the first hard drive in the machine it works again as it should for a little bit then goes back to does not see drive 0 and we start again by changing the drives. There must something lose or a problem with the motherboard. Are there any fixes for this?
When looking at the bios it sees the drive and sometimes after going to f2 the machine will boot as it should. Today when it stopped working I only removed the screws for the cover of the hard drive and now it works just fine. I have tried changing the memory as that can mess things up as well.
