New PSU doesn't have four point connection


You can still use this power supply but you will need to purchase a 4 to 8 pin connector . you can find them on ebay etc. You can also use two power supplies, one for gfx card one for PC. I use two. To turn on a PSU without it connected to PC ( just to use it as extra power.) You just have to connect the green wire to any black wire with a wire or paper clip. (At your own risk. Set pins first tape off and turn on by plugging into wall) . Good luck.

My acer laptop wont turn in it just acts like there is no batterry in it and no power cord plugged in


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

My new battery is not charging what is the problem


If you have purchased a new battery for your laptop because the old one also refused to charge, the problem is likely the connection inside the laptop where the battery connects to the machine itself. Correcting this issue would mean some serious work, and I would not advise that you do this yourself, as it is easy to cause more problems while trying to correct that one. Your best option is to take it in and have it serviced by a professional, or at the very least have your new battery tested to see if it is simply defective. I wish I could give you a 'do it yourself' answer to this, but to try fixing the connection pins yourself would mean taking your laptop apart, and with the compact nature of laptops, there is a lot of room for error when disassembling it - you could end up needing a whole new laptop with just the slightest mistake.

How to install a second hard drive


pmarrs177 you are quite welcome!

I suppose I better post this as a solution, instead of in a Clarification.

This way when someone looks for this type of information, it will be available in a search hit on the internet.

Your problem and my solution will be on the internet for years to come. (Also easier to read) Congratulations! You'll be known worldwide as one more person, who helped bring the mysteries of SATA to be a little bit less mysterious.

Installing it as a secondary storage Harddrive?

Did your Acer T180 model come with a SATA harddrive already installed?

There are several different models of the Acer T180.
Some examples: AST180-UA380A, AST180-U381A, AST180-UA380B

Some of these came with a PATA harddrive, and some came with a SATA harddrive. (PATA is also referred to as ATA, IDE, and EIDE)

Why the question? Because when Windows is first installed on a computer, you are asked if you wish the SATA drivers to be installed.

The model version of an ACER T180 that came with a SATA harddrive, has these drivers already installed.

If your Acer did come with a SATA harddrive, and you are installing an additional harddrive for more storage, just plug the SATA data cable into ANY available SATA header on the motherboard.

BIOS will find the harddrive. Just one of the nice features about SATA.

You can use ANY SATA header on the motherboard. {Not shouting}
(A connection on a motherboard is a Header. This is what a SATA header on a motherboard looks like, doesn't matter what color it is.

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

{Top right photo on page)

The SATA data cable, usually has a 90 degree elbow on one end. This end connects to the Harddrive. Doesn't always have a 90 degree elbow, but most of the time it does.

The straight end connects to the motherboard. There are 7 pins used in the connector.
The SATA power cable has 15 pins.

Scroll down the page in the above link, for photos of the end connector for a SATA data cable, and the end connector used for a SATA power cable.

NOTE*
IF, you do not have an unused SATA power cable coming out of your Power Supply, see if you have a 4-pin peripheral power cable that is not being used.

(The connector end is referred to as a 4-pin Molex connector. It is whitish in color)
This shows what a 4-pin peripheral power cable looks like,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Buy an adapter power cable that connects to the 4-pin Molex connector, and has a 15-pin SATA power cable connector on the other end.

Fit Keyboard to Acer Aspire 5630 Laptop


When you remove the old keyboard you can place the new one down and the cable should fall in the vicinity of the connector. Most laptop ribbon cables have a little plastic piece that you pull up to make inserting the end of the ribbon cable easier, When you insert the cable sometimes this piece goes down with it other times you have to "snap" it back in place. A word of caution, when pulling up on this piece it should not come off but just come up and a little off to the front or back. I sometimes have to use needle-nose pliers to get it in, but be gentle!

You can go to almost any office supply store and they should have some kind of selection for 'ide' cables. they are relatively cheap as well.
