Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Acer Aspire 5100

My 18 month old laptop has just recently had a new hard-drive installed by a local man who works with computers. The reason for this was because it keeps on crashing and it normally doesn't start up or if it does it can take me 30 minutes of turning it off etc to finally get a positive response. Does anybody have any ideas on what to do next as I am not a gadget girl?

Many thanks

Maybe your computer has a corrupted file system, memory problems or hard disk failure. I suggest sending your Laptop to Geeks Squad at any best buy location or Firedog at any Circuit city location for evaluation.

I have an acer aspire 7720 i changed the hard drive recently installed all the drivers buut the wireless connection refuses to work ive


Hi

when you said that you have installed a new hard drive
did you use the recovery disks to install the operating system

have you checked in device manager to see if the wireless driver is installed
please check under network adapters
if it is in there but not working you could un install it
restart laptop and windows may install it correctly on start up

or you could look on the website for a new wireless driver
also please make sure that you have enable the wireless switch


www.acer.com


support/downloads
find your model
then scroll down for the wireless driver
download it
install it
restart the laptop

good luck
many thanks

Acer Aspire 150 - bought new 18 months ago and have been told that the motherboard has gone. Is this reasonable and has anyone else had a similar probelm and if so what did you do about it?


Is this reasonable? - no, but possible, yes. I have seen plenty of electronics go bad just a week or two past the warranty, including computers. Unfortunately, about all you can do about it is 1) get a new motherboard installed, or 2) get a new computer and this time buy the extended warranty. By the way, whoever installs your motherboard should be able to easily get your documents/files from the hard drive. You will need to reinstall Windows, and a new motherboard/processor will require a new installation. Just putting the hard drive back in will produce the "blue screen of death" just so you know ahead of time.

Acer aspire one hard disk cannot read


Check the BIOS configuration for the hard disk, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer should detect the hard drive as an external disk drive. If this computer cannot detect it and/or cannot open the folders etc. the the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to install a new hard drive in the Acer and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs to get the laptop operational again.

Acer harddrive working also in other Acer notebooks?


You can physically install the drive in any laptop with the same type. They will either be SATA or IDE. However unless you have a nearly identical system which is unlikely after a few months of buying it the windows installation is not likely to work.

The better solution would be to stop in at your local computer store and purchase a 2.5" drive caddy and install the HDD into the caddy. That caddy will then work as an external HDD on any computer you purchase allowing you not only to access the files on it but also to backup any new data.

Install Xp on Acer Asprie 5735z


I'd reccomend backing up data and formatting your hard drive. Then install XP from disk and put data back on hard drive. You could use external hard drive or jumpdrive. It stands to reason that SATA works with XP, because the new computers I have seen have SATA and XP working conflict-free.

Acer aspire one crashed after installing xp service pack 3


Your installed software version, to include windows (your operating system) is corrupted in some form. It may be several different reasons, but in most cases it is caused by deleted files or a piece of hardware which is about to fail, most times, the hard drive. If you've only had it for a few months, you should absolutely get it in for repair as soon as you can!
