Dual drive, uhm? You are looking for a mSATA. All that matters is the connection. So, yes you can.

However, being that this a new machine, why would sacrifice so much space? You won't find an 750GB SSD card, and expect to pay about a dollar (USA) per GB. That means a 120GB drive will cost you over $100. - Just my 2 cents.

This model Acer uses 21/2" SATA hard drives.
Make sure the SSD drive has SATA connection.

Yes you can but i would stay with the two 750 GB drives as the SSD is less space and will only give you a faster boot up of the OS

SOURCE: Reset Acer Aspire One to factory settings--clean hard drive

You will have to order the erecovery cds from Acer to put it back to factory settings. They can about $40.00 to $50.00 dollars and they arrive about a week after you order them. Once you get them, you boot from cdrom and follow the instructions on the screen.

Go to Acer.com to order them.

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop wont detect the hard drive

If it works on another computer then either the ide cable in the acer is bad/loose at either end or the ide controller on the motherboard is bad. I would try a known good ide cable first as if this is the problem it is fixable alot cheaper than a motherboard. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to replace Acer Aspire 5630 Hard Drive

The link below gives you the user manual. On the computer views is the base view which will show you the correct bay on the bottom of the computer. You will loosed the screws to that bay, remove the cover andl you will see the hard drive. Althought I have not removed this particular laptop hard drive, these drives usually pull up or back using a tab provided. The hard drive will probably have a cradle the actual drive is connected to. You will have to removed the old drive from this cradle and put the new drive back on the cradle exactly the way the old drive was attached,

I hope that this information helps and gives you a place to start solving your issue.

Please tell me if I can install this SSD drive in my Acer Aspire V3-771G laptop. What is the difference between SSD SATA II and III


A sata 3 SSD on a sata 2 PC will slow down slightly to sata 2 speeds, and vice versa. But this is usually acceptable since any current model SSD is much much faster than a normal hard drive so even installing a slower model SSD will be a big improvement. Its analogous to a porsche 911 and a volkswagen beetle. The 911 is faster than the beetle but both are much faster than horses.

your laptop has a normal hard drive. Most SSD's except apple SSD's are the same size and have the same connectors so 99% of the time it will work. you can see pictures of the SSD and compare it with your current hard drive

I see your point. But if I decide to place an SSD hard drive, will Windows 7 recognize the other hard drive which is not SSD? Please respond ASASP


Windows should not discriminate one way or the other. Just make sure both drives appear in BIOS first.

I guessing you want the OS on the SSD? Load it first, then treat the 750GB SATA as a secondary hd. Just a suggestion if it gives you problems.

On the bottom of the acer zg5 netbook there is a a compartment cover with 2 screws on it and i want to know if this is for the harddrive or what because it is empty and it doe's not boot up the cover...


On some laptops you have 2 compartements,one is for the ram memory and the other sometimes ,if you have this type of hard drive a ssd drive--this is a hard drive without any moving parts,composed mainly of chips etc as opposed to the normal mechanical drive which works basically like an old record player IE it has a disk which spins and an arm with a magnetic pick up moves across the disk.your model might be the ssd type.
To gain access to the harddrive of the other type of netbook/laptop you reallly have to take it apart to access it.
ssd's are shock proof and more reliable mechanical type hardrive fail at an earlier stage.

Just want to know if I can change out the 8g SSD in this acerone to a 160 g hard drive


you might be able to find a compatable upgrade ssd but remember ssd's are just basically chips on a pcb not like an old "record player" hard disk drive,which also has more moving parts and is likely to fail at an earlier stage due to this.Also ssd's are shock proof which gives them the advantage

Acer Netbook OS


if you are getting this message about corrupted partitions, you need to check and possibly replace the hard drive. There is a program to check the hard drive called Hard Disk Sentinel. It is designed for SSD hard drives like the Acer Aspire One has. Yours has a 160GB hard drive in it now.
