Re: acer aspire 4315
Take out the hard drive from the laptop and reseat it back into position. Sometimes reseating the hard drive will get it to be recognized by the BIOS. After you reseat the hard drive, go into the BIOS and see if its recognized in there. If it is then try to format the hard drive. If it still doesn't see it then your hard drive will need to be replaced.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

other laptops, Acer notebook/laptops integrate a computer management utility
called 'Acer eRecovery Management' to create backup of hard drive data,

external storage device attached to it. Now start your laptop.
Step 2: Press 'Alt + F10' when the laptop starts booting, and wait for a moment while Windows loads the reset files.
Step 3:When 'Acer eRecovery Management' window appears, select 'Restore System from factory default' and click 'Next' to continue.

Your hard drive is either crashed or corrupted. You might try checking the bios to see if the drive is showing up. If it is, you can try a repair or a reformat. You will need your restore disk(s).
Boot off the disk and follow the instructions.
Moving the laptop while it's accessing the hard drive or improperly shutting down the computer can corrupt the drive. If kids use it as well, it is a good idea to keep your backups current...you do back up, don't you?
If you have the factory CD's you can yous that to reformat and install all defaults. If not, you can use a bootable Windows CD. Boot to the cd (pressing F12 as soon as the computer turns on and selecting Boot to CD)
You can the use the Windows CD to format the drive and re-install Windows.
Hope that helps. Please comment and rate if it does.
the computer can't detect the hard drive to start from it or, then theres a problem with your windows. Use the recovery discs or windows setup cd to try to install windows to the computer again to fix the problem. Let me know how that goes. Thanks
