SOURCE: my laptop is saying Check Cable Connection!

What this means is that it has "lost" the windows installation. Possibly corrupted and possibly a virus
The message you are getting is due to the laptop looking for an alternative boot device, the PXE refes to network boot, the last in the boot order.

What you need to do is obtain a copy of the Windows disc, borrow a USB CD Drive and re-install. When getting to the install windows prompt, let it "find " the windows installation and REPAIR

If you do not have a USB device, the following is your only other option:

  1. You will need the following: Copy of a windows installtion disc; usb pendrive of 2 gb, probably aslo a usb floppy drive and floppy disc.
  2. You will also need this:
http://wintoflash.com/home/en/

  1. Now you need to borrow a computer to download the above software and visit the Acer download page to get the SATA drivers. Extract these to a floppy drive and make sure you have the TEXTMODE drivers!
  2. Run win to flash and extract the windows files from the cd, it will guide you through the process of making a BOOT Usb.
  3. Set laptop bios to boot from USB
  4. When prompted (have the floppy usb drive plugged in), at F6 press to detect the SATA drivers on teh floppy
  5. Follow instructions and you should have windows up and running again

SOURCE: Check cable connection..! PXE-E63: Error while

Hard drive is not detected. Change the Boot sequence in BIOS

1. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
2. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 6
3. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
4. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
5. Save the changes and Restart
6. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
7. If Step 6 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive

Thanks for Choosing

SOURCE: When i turn on my Acer Aspire One 722 it says:

First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

The harddisk security sata port 0 , how can I open this laptop harddisk because it is locked


If a hard disk is password protected, you must get the password. There is normally no way around it.

However, if the user password has been set, the administrator password on the hard disk can be used to delete it. I am not talking about Windows accounts here, I refer to passwords stored in the firmware of the hard disk.

This is going to be very hard as once hard disks are locked they cannot be undone so if you have no passwords to get into the security of the HDD, its a new hard disk i'm afraid.

Acer Laptop, hard disk security locked?


It seems that drive lock for this drive is enabled from BIOS. Is BIOS also password protected? Drivelock can be removed from there.

No access to laptop


It's a hard disk security resource on Acer's laptops.
Some user did you the favor to set up a password (unknown, of course).

Make sure you've tryed easy pwd like 1234, 123456, 0, 1.... before try:

1) Take you laptop for authorized technical assistence service (they have the software that fixes that).

2) Try this:
http://www.allservice.ro/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1892&start=0
(didn't work for me but it worked for others)

2) This happened to me. I searched at the internet and found a website that solved my problem by paying about U$ 60,00:

http://www.hddunlock.com

They definetly solved my problem... but I had to pay.

Sorry my poor English.

Power on, enter the bios setup (press F2, F10 or [Delete] when powering up and go to the "security" section.
Locate "drivelock" or "harddisk password", from there disable the HD lock.
