To recover the date if the unit does not power on anymore. pull the drives out and connect them directly to the PC.

what could of cause this? back HD sectors. bad enclose. over heating.

    hum.. i had that feeling it was a raid setup. there's some Raid utility that can rebuild it from what some of my friends tell me. but 98% most of the time in a raid setup, i'm assuming it's a raid 0 then all data is lost. sorry.

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.


You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

I asked this a few days ago; , I have a Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive in a HP compaq presario SR 1617CL I want to replace it with a larger HD, 500GB or 1TB. Can I replace it with a...


Yes, either of these drives will work. The cache is not all that important it is just where data is stored temporarily in case you have to access it again soon after a file is written to the hard drive. The best thing you could do in this case is see if your motherboard has a sata connection which I would assume it does and buy a sata hard drive. It will be much faster than either of those drives, just make sure you also get a sata power adapter if your power supply doesn't already have one and a sata cable.

Hi - I have a Dell E510 with a 160 gig RAID drive (or 2 160 gigs together). I swapped one out for a Western Digital 500Gig drive, but now I can't get the drive to show up on my computer. And the Intel...


You have to break the mirror of the raid assembly. There should be an option in the boot screen for you to control your assembly. You have to take away the raid settings in order for the HD's to stop replicating and act independantly.

Western Digital Hard Drive not detected by my computer


More information may be needed, however...

I'm guessing you have a SATA Western Digital Hard Drive. You will have to install the SATA drivers before it will recognize it.

If that's not the issue, please let me know what kind of hard drive you have and what computer you are installing it into.

Internal hd ata


If I am right on this one the 4600 can only take a 250gig hd But I was wondering if you could partion the HD to 236.7 gigs twice so the computer only recognizes the 236.7 gig hd you will see two drives in my computer once you do just format both partitions unless you have another hd and then you will see three drives just do the ones you installed or you may loose your operating system, I don't even know if that will work, but I think it is worth a try seems you already have the 500gig drive, can't hurt to try, I sure hope this help some what.,
