Did you make sure it was compatible and would work with your system
you can go into bios setup
try restarting a couple times and see if it picks it up
try control panel add new
and make sure everything in device manager is correct

Sounds like you require new drivers for the USB sockets. Only use Acer drivers, Microsoft are not trusted to work without issue.

HDD capacity greater than 128GB with Acer Travelmate 2300


ive had a look on the acer website and there is a replacement bios available , but theres no mention if it would enable large Hd support , rather than flashing your bios and potentially destroying your laptop i would purchase a external drive , you can get the enclosures for 10-20 pounds and fit a decent size HD in this

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.

Upgrading hdd in hp ze4805us to 250GB WD -- Won't Boot


since your bios says theirs a limit to HDD capacity you may want to try making the 250GB disk into 2 smaller partitions. Then extract your OS image to the first partition.

250Gb hard drive for Acer travelmate 2300


No. I have tried a 250 Gb but my 2303 wont carry it. it will only recognize up to 130Gb but I did not try it with a 120Gb internally, my 250Gb IDE -HDD will run as an external but there is a power surge warning that comes up when I connect it, however I can run a 500 Gb SATA HDD with out this happening.

Same problem with aspire 3100 wlmi


Hello marpaungroy,

How are you doing? Try the steps below. In 80% of the cases the issue will be resolved.

Here are the steps:

Step 1: As you said you cannot use the key board and mouse there is no way you can go to bios to do bios default. so At the bottom of your laptop you have two compartments. One willbe the RAM compartment and other will be hard drive compartment.

Remove both out of the laptop. Turn on the laptop. wait for 1 minute than turn off the laptop.

Now remove the batter as well and also unplug the AC adapter. press and hold the power button for 1 minute. This will remove static charge.

Now put every thing back. I mean reinser the RAM, HARD DRIVE, AC ADAPTER and BATTERY.

Now turn on the laptop And do a complete PC recoverey using the Recovery CD. I mean do a complete format of the system using the CD.

I am sure in 80% of the cases this should resolve the issue.

If the issue persists than it is a clear sign of hardware malfunction. Mother board needs to be replaced.

Thank you. Best of Luck.

Have you tried to disconnect the external monitor and just booting to the laptop? If this works, then use the "e" key next to the power button to add the second monitor.
