SOURCE: I need help! I'm

here is what you will need to complete this project:

  • Your new DVD burner with the included screws and cable.
  • A phillips screwdriver.
  • your new harddrive
  • Once you unpack the drive and find a screwdriver, you can finish the prep work by turning off and unplugging the power from your PC.
Installing Your Harddrive Step1 Open up your case after backing up any important files and locating and installing any software that came with the hard drive. Check to make sure that your computer supports SATA or that you have a SATA PCI card installed. Step2Look for the smaller connector on the SATA cable and connect it to the SATA connector located on the motherboard or controller card. If you already have another SATA drive, simply follow its cable to the motherboard or card to see where this one will attach. Step3Grab the larger end of the SATA cable and connect it to the back of the SATA drive itself. You will also need to attach the legacy 4-pin connector or SATA power cable to power your drive. At this point, check to see that both the smaller and larger end of the SATA cable and the power cable are securely connected and proceed. Step4Choose an available drive bay and insert the hard drive into it, mounting it in place with the four screws provided. Make sure to follow the directions that came with your drive and place the screws in the designated holes to secure proper grounding. Step5Ensure that all cables are properly attached and replace the tower or desktop case cover. After doing this, you're all set to reconnect the power cord and turn on your computer. Formatting and Partitioning Step1Boot from your Windows CD. If this is the only hard drive present, you'll be shown a series of instructions and should simply follow along. Step2Select "Control Panel" then "Performance and Maintenance" and finally "Administrative Tools" for an additional hard drive. Then click the "Computer Management option and choose "Disk Management." Simply right-click the drive to partition and format it. Step3Follow the steps displayed. Windows will guide you through the rest of the process. Now for your dvd drive---- 1.Shut down the system, unplug the power cord and remove the side panel or panels from the case. Ensure that the new DVD-ROM drive is set to be "Slave" or "Master," depending on if it is a replacement or an additional drive. 3 2.Locate the empty drive bay for the new DVD-ROM drive, and remove the drive bay covering. 4 Insert the new DVD-ROM drive into the empty bay and secure with screws or other attaching device provided by the manufacturer. 5 3.Connect the open connector on the ribbon cable (red stripe towards power cable) to the new DVD-ROM drive and connect the power supply cable (plastic four connector plug from power supply)to the drive. 6 Replace the side panel or panels, plug in the power cord and turn the system on. Install your dvd software bundle and get to work. These are actually two things you will want to do at once while the computer is open , but i would do them one at a time in case you have problems you will know what to blame. You can leave the cover off while operating the computer so that you can test it after the hard drive instrall and before the dvd install.

My wifes computer has had the same problem. It's a driver problem and I found the fix on Acer website. See if your computer is listed on the following link. If so, download the patch. This totally solved my problem! http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=4087&formid=3394&website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&words=all&keywords=&areaid=2

SOURCE: serial number on acer says invalid for win 7

hope youre not trying to install it using the old serial number on the sticker on your case? It should have come with a new serial number to install. You also have to have XP or Vista to perform an upgrade otherwise you need a full installation CD.

SOURCE: Acer desktop mouse,keyboard not functioning, monitor also not wor

If there is no display on the monitor, then your computer is not sending a video signal to the monitor.
This could be caused by a bad video card or some other hardware problem. I would open the case and disconnect all the devices (hard drive, CD, etc. Leave only the CPU, memory, and video connected. You could leave the keyboard and mouse connected too.
If your computer then starts, you can start to add devices (after turning the computer off) one at a time.
If this doesn't work, then you are looking at replacing the motherboard or just the video card if that is possible.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire desktop AST135 cooling fan runs fast & slow - noisey

If the computer case, or Processor fan is noisy, it is due to the bearings are bad. The bearings are worn, and this allows the fan hub beneath the fan blades, to rub.

(If you gently rock the fan by lifting up on one side, and there is a perceptible amount of play, the bearings are bad)
Suggest you replace it.

For a case fan, just measure the dimensions of the fan's outside case.
Measure the Height and Length, plus the Width, (Thickness).
Look at the connector on the end of the fan's cable.

Most fan sizes are shown in Millimeters. (mm) If you are not familiar with the metric system, you can go online, and use a free Millimeters to Inches Converter.

Examples:
1) 80mm = 3.14960 inches. Slightly over 3- 1/8th inches
2) 92mm = 3.62204 inches. Slightly under 3- 5/8ths inches
3) 120mm = 4.72440 inches. Slightly under 4- 3/4ths inches
4) 130mm = 5.11811 inches. Slightly under 5- 1/8th inches

See if it is a 2 pin connector, 3 pin connector, or 4 pin connector, on the end of the fan's cable.

(Fans operate on DC electricity. Just like the rest of the computer. DC is a Positive connection, and a Negative connection.

For a connector with 2 pins, that is all that is hooked up. Just power to the fan.

For a connector with 3 pins, the third pin is for the computer, to show what RPM's the fan is spinning at. {Revolutions per Minute}

For a connector with 4 pins, the fourth pin is a sensor connection.
The computer will speed up, or slow down the fan, according to what RPM is needed)

For a Processor fan the connection should be matched also.
When looking for a replacement Processor fan, it is the processor socket that the processor sits in, that you should look for.

You didn't state the full Model Number, such as AST135-US3104, or AST135-US3303, (It's on the back of the computer next to the Windows Product Key)
The two above models have an AMD Sempron processor.

They use a Socket 754.
(AMD Sempron 3100+, and AMD Sempron 3300+.
The AMD Sempron 3000+ that operates at 1.8Ghz, could be a Palermo Core that uses a Socket 754, or the model that uses a Socket 939)

Need help in finding a replacement computer case fan, or Processor fan? State so in an additional comment.

No video signal on acer aspire x1200. changed monitors and cables


You should be more specific next time - is it a laptop or a desktop computer, do you have additional graphics card, etc? I've already googled for a PC type. You have a desktop PC which comes with integrated graphics. It has two video ports onboard - VGA and HDMI. Which one did you try? It could also be that you have additional graphics card installed. In this case integrated graphics card is turned off automatically. Sometimes people accidentally connect their display to the wrong port - you should check that. It could also be, that you don't see any video output, because of faulty hardware like RAM, CPU or the Motherboard. Do you hear any beeps or other sounds during startup?

Unfortunately, Acer is really lame when it comes to providing item specific manuals to it's customers. All they ever have are generic manuals on their web site which never help at all. You will need to contact Acer support and ask them if they ever even made a REAL manual for it and if they would send you one. Let them know you are not happy with the lack of item specific manuals on their website. You can contact them here:

How to remove panel from pc


Perhaps your case panel is attached to the rest of the case by clips or a sliding mechanism. Since I don't know the computer model, I suggest you carefully inspect your entire case, or at least the side panel and the back side to see if there are any sliders. Hope this helps!
