Upgrading a har drive on a desktop is pretty easy. just open the case (while powered down) pull out the hard drive and copy down the make and model. go to a computer store or online to newegg and buy a bigger drive in the same interface (ie. IDE or sata).

there is usually detailed instructions has to how to do the data swap and how to set the jumpers on with the new drive.

Good luck
Rob

How to remove hard drive from acer aspire x3200


Remove the cover/side panel on the case to get access to the components inside the computer.
The SATA hard drive is secured to the disk drive bay with 4 screws.
Unplug the SATA data cable and power cable from the hard drive, then remove the 4 screws securing the hard drive in the drive bay.
The hard drive can be removed from the drive bay.
Reverse this order to fit the hard drive back inside the computer.

How do i replace hard drive on my acer veriton 3600gt


Depending on the hard drive, it may need to be 'initialized' before the computer can recognize it. This is best done by putting the hard drive in a working computer and going to, if using Windows, right-click My Computer, select Manage and clicking Disc Management where you will see the uninitialized drive.
You will need to create a partition and format it. Then your Acer should see it.
If you don't have a second computer then you will need to insert an operating installation disc in the drive and have that operating system's software format the disc.

I have an acer aspire t180-oa7z. i want to put a new hard drive in. my current hard drive 80gb SATA. what hard drive would you recommend?


For your current spec hard drives can support up to 400GB. So I would like to suggest using 320 GB hard drives, and I see hard drives with this capacity still available on the market.

Is there supposed to be some kind of a bracket holding the hard drive in a Acer, Aspire 1690 Series notebook, or does the hard drive just slide in without a bracket. I need to install a new hard drive in...


Dear Customer,
Acer hard drive brackets or caddies are available for all the notebook series. i would recommend you to go for a bracket for the hard drive rather than just sliding it in. For information regarding the brackets try the following site

I just wanna know how to replace an acer laptop hard drive with a bigger one


Usually you

1) purchase the new hard drive
2) look around the base of your laptop to find where the HDD is, if you look at the manual which im sure acer will have on its site it will show you
3) usually 1 or 2 screws are unscrewed and you slide out the hard drive, it will be in a special holder
4) unscrew the old hard drive and insert the new one and secure it in place like the old one.
5) insert, re-do screws up, turn on laptop.

this new hard drive wont have any information on it so you will need to reinstall windows on that drive.

What hard drive do I put in an Acer Veriton 7200/7200D Desktop?


According to Acer you will need an EIDE Hard Drive. Originally that model came with a 20 GB Hard drive. Should be relatively inexpensive if you can find one.

Here is a link for a manual on your system you can download: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/v7200ug.pdf
