Sounds like your motherboard could be faulty. Probably needs repairing. Contact Acer or the store of purchase if you have warranty.

If its an annoying sound of a drive spinning up and then shutting down again and again, of it is accompanied by an annoying clicking sound; then the drive is definitely dead.

Sounds like your hard disk is either empty or broken. I have a spare hard disk that I keep with a different operating system on it for the same laptop. If this happened to me I would just swap hard disks and I would know that the computer hardware was working or if it was just a hard disk problem. I would reinstall. If you have a hard disk caddy you could plug the hard disk into anothet computer and this would check to see if teh hard disk was corrupted.

Hi there, genjie here, i would like to ask what type pf HDD would you recommend for my NEC versapro laptop?Before I have 40gb hdd, but it was broken due to unwanted files, i still keep on thinking if it...

The maximum size hard disk your laptop can support depends upon the BIOS chip in your laptop. My guess is probable max. size is 60Gb.
I do not think your hard disk is broken, especially if the laptop can boot up. You can delete your unwanted data files to recover some disk space. Don't forget to empty the Recycle Bin.
If you want a large hard disk (650 Gb) then get an external USB hard drive, plug this hard drive into the laptop's USB port and you can store your data files onto this USB hard drive.
If you need further assistance, please get back to me.

Ascertain that the hard disk is an external or internal device usually specified on the manufacrturers manual or as logos indicated on device. An external disk device usuallly is plug and play enabled. Extesion cables allows to connect from device to the computer from which would derive functionality soon after processis achieved. The computer is capable of performing on dual drives only with the dafualt and external as substitues. For example, a broken computer default disk is capable of acquiring connectivity with an external disk. However, a broken internal disk is unable to perform without replacing the broken once with another internal disk. Alternately, an internal device would require extracting the computer default disk for the new replacement to take effect

Are the pins broken or just bent? If the pins are broken you need to replace the hard disk. You should not dismantle or remove the cover off the hard disk, this needs to be done in a clean room enviroment as dust particles will damage the hard disk.

Yes, it's true your hard disk needs to be replaced. Replacing it is easy enough, usually just one screw on the side ofyour laptop and it pulls out, swap the hard drive out and put it back in again. If your laptop supports boot from external device, it can but I don't think yours does since it's only a P III.
