Hi there and welcome to FixYa.
There is a hidden partition on the hard drive that keeps an image of how the laptop looked when it left the manufacturer.
You should be able to access this by the restore program. As I´m not to familiar with Vista, I would suggest you use your help in Vista to do it right.

Try to stay close to the same year of production. Depending how old it is, typically you can just install the hd in another Acer and off you go.

Sounds like the motherboard. Take the cover off the tower and when turning your computer on inside there is a green light and if it goes to an orange light and stays flashing the motherboard needs replaced

If you still have your Acer StartScreen, or similar termed window that comes up right when your computer starts, look for "Create Restore Disks"

Or, open the start menu and browse for any entries labled Acer, inside these you should find the startscreen or an entry labled "Create Restore Disks"

I can't find any driver support on acers web site for my extensa 5220 as it doesn't seem to be listed in their product drop down menu. Are their any sites that cater for this type of note book?


Hello there,
Here is the direct link to your drivers. Make sure you download the drivers for the operating system you are using (either xp or vista)

Enjoy!

How to open Acer Extensa 5420 hard drive bay.


Actually since the Acer Extensa is more of a home use computer, it is not quiet as simple as working on business laptops. With the Extensa you have to remove the large panel on the bottom of the laptop that is held by 7 screws. The panel has 4 sets of vents in it and a 1 inch square rubber foot in the center. The screws do not completely come out as they appear to be fastened to the panel. Once you have loosed all 7 screws, there is a small place to insert your finger nail on the side close to the Windows Vista Certificate sticker. Just lift up on the panel easily as there are plastic tabs holding the panel still. Once you remove the panel, there is is only two screws holding the hard drive in place. Remove the two screws and slide the hard drive toward the back of the laptop. Done.
