Question about Computers & Internet
The major difference between the SSD SATA II and III is the speed of info transfer. SATA II is 3GB/s and SATA III is 6 GB/s. I'm pretty sure that your laptop already has a 120GB SSD SATA II drive installed. You can add a SATA III drive with no issues, but I don't think that your laptop can actually work at the SATA III speed. This should not be an issue.

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

This will be one of two things, 1- a driver glitch, you will need to uninstall the drivers for the cd/dvd drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. This will fix it if it's a driver problem. You can also try any updated driver utilities, or patches for the drive from Acer's support site. 2- the cd/dvd drive has failed and needs replaced. These are basically plug and play devices, they either work or they don't, so a majority of the time when the machine stops recognizing the drive, it's because the drive has malfunctioned. Unfortunately, these drives are considered sealed units and replacement parts aren't available.

SOURCE: Hard Disk upgrade
Figured this out...
1) Flip laptop over, keep front of laptop closest to you and hinges away from you 2) Remove cover with cylinder/harddrive icon (2 screws) 3) Remove small single silver screw near the front (close to you) of the laptop in the center of the metal harddrive caddy (the caddy may hold one or two hard drives) 4) Pull the plastic tab on the left toward the outside of the laptop... the whole caddy with harddrive(s) inside will shift to the left, disconnecting it from the motherboard and lining up the caddy for removal. 5) Lift the entire bracket straight up
To remove the primary harddrive (the only one present in my model) you must remove the blue L-shaped circuit board from the caddy. 1) Flip the caddy over 2) Remove the three screws with slightly larger head diameters around the perimiter of the caddy 3) Push/slide/jiggle the circuit board so the sata connectors release from the hard drive(s). 4) Unscrew the hard drive from the caddy

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: 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.
