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.

1st go through your 'programs and features' in your control panel and delete anything over around 100Mb unless it is necessary, a lot of ram is taken up by these programs even when they are not being run.

SOURCE: How to replace the DVD drive on Acer Aspire 5002

I actually had to permorm this action yesterday.
First remove the small strip above the keyboard by unscrewing the three screws at the back of the machine that hold it; then twisting the screen al the way back and lifting it up.
Second unscrew the keyboard (2 screws) and lift it away (don't detach the cable).
Third: on the left side under the keyboard unscrew 3 screws that hold the cdrom in place.
Pull the drive out. The rest (taking the case of the dirve) should be transparent.
There is nothing on the bottom you have to unscrew!

Slow acer aspire 5520g


Disk defragment is first step. This will locate files closer to each other on the hard drive. Should be located in system tools. Other than that I would save all important files externally and format the drive and start fresh. Beyond that, you would probably need to upgrade.

    The games will slow the system down considerabily, which is a good start. I recommend going to www.download.com Type ccleaner and install, gets rid of a lot of junk on the hard drive, one of the best and it is free, then defrag the hard drive for better performance.

    Hard drive needs cleening


    Open My Computer and right click on the C drive and select Properties. Click on Disk Cleanup and after it calculates how much space you can free up it opens up a box that you can check off which areas you want to clean. You probably want to check them all unless you have a specific area you dont want cleaned. This will take a while. After it is through Click the Tools tab and click Defragment now. When the box opens make sure the C drive is highlighted and Click Defragment. This will take a while too. when it is done, reboot the computer

    Acer Aspire 3680 too slow


    Sure but if it has acually been slowing down you must also find the problem. Have you disk cleaned up and defragged your hard drive lately. Cleaned out all the junk from your internet exploier?  Have you gotten rid of everrything that you don't need or want. Slowest thing in a computer is the Hard drive seek/read time.  
      According to you manual (Link below) You can have up to 4GB total memory. Two strips of 2GB each soDIMMs
