Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
I have an Acer Aspire One with a Windows XP operating system.
I can turn the machine on and it gets as far as Windows just appearing when there is a clicking sound and it shuts itself down. This appears to happen more quickly when the machine is not plugged in.
It sounds like the hard drive is faulty and has some bad sectors on it. Take the hard drive and boot the machine to rule out any other possibilities of problems with the laptop itself, if it stays on and just says hard disk not found you know its the hard drive.
You need to have the hard drive checked for possible bad sectors and have them repaired or maybe even have to purchase a new drive.
