Unable ro open my hard disk, only explore it.

I have NORTON 360 software.
the problem: open My computer. double-click Disk C (OR D). get the following message: ''windows cannot find 'RECYCLERS-5-7-63-100026113-100029708-100022673-2715.com'. make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search''.
BUT the system enable explore these hard disks and do all needed tasks.
the problem is only with disks, not with directories.

Thanks,

Operating system not found


No, you won't get the OS to automatically install on the new drive. The OS is not stored in the BIOS chip (or a similar permanent location inside the computer). You will need an OS install disc (not an upgrade disc). Windows Vista Home Premium or Basic was the original OS on most of the Acer Aspire 4530 series. Acer appears to have drivers for the system for XP through Windows 7 to get the hardware to work. You will need to have these most of these ready before you install your OS. Put them on a flash drive or optical disc using another computer.

This computer may work with Unix as well. However, driver issues may be a factor. You can try most versions of Unix from a CD (LiveCD) to test it out.

When you get a new hard drive, install it into the laptop. Then put the OS disk in the optical drive bay. Boot to the optical drive. Follow the directions for formatting the hard drive and installing the OS. (Of course you will need a drive that doesn't have a higher capacity than the BIOS supports.) The motherboard needs to recognize the drive.

If you find a member of a Windows User Group, they may have Windows install discs available. The license number on the label of your computer will probably work as your license key. (The key for a computer like this is locked to the CPU and motherboard; unless someone upgraded the OS to Windows 7 or downgraded to XP, this should be the key you need.) Use the information on the label to obtain the correct version of Vista (the Basic install disc may not work for installing Home Premium). You also need to match the 32-bit or 64-bit install disc (and the service pack you need).

I hope this helps.

(An Acer recovery disc wouldn't help you. Most of those are completely locked to the original hardware (including hard drive) and look for the recovery partition that was on that hard drive.)

Help, a friend got some virus on her machine. I cleaned off the virus but now we get the blue screen. She did not get OS disks with her computer. She is running MS XP Home Ed. SP2. I don't know what to...


Find any "generic" Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM disk.
Use that disk, and the 25-character product-key on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop.
Then, access ACER's web-site, and download the specific device-drivers that are found
on the ACER-customized Windows disk (which you don't have).

Or, contact ACER, and pay $20 to $40 to purchase a replacement "System Recovery" set of disks.

Hello,

You are trying to install windows xp? The normal windows xp cd will not have drivers for newer laptops. You will get this error message.

What you need to do is to try using acer recovery instead.

Acer machines should have a build in recovery, hold down ALT and presson F10 repeatedly when you power on the machine, keep pressing every 2seconds until acer recovery comes up, if it doesn't come up then yourmachine probably doesn't have that option, the laptops mostly have it.

If you are unable to do the above then you may be able to order recovery discs from ACER --https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=Acer

I have a Compaq Presario 2715US. Started having


The problem maybe a loose electrical connection with the RAM modules and hard disk. Re-seat the RAM modules and the hard disk.
If the problem persists then the hard disk maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer has trouble seeing it as an external hard drive and unable to open the folders and files then the hard disk is faulty.
Then the hard disk needs to be replaced in the Compaq and Windows XP needs to installed on the new hard drive and the device drivers and programs.

Attempt to turn on computer, no OS install windows


Marginal hard drive, hard drive cable, or hard drive controller (on motherboard).

Other suspect parts may be the CD ROM drive you're trying to run the OS install from. It may also be flaky, causing you to think you're loading the OS, but not really and not reporting errors until you discover the OS is not completely installed.

First thing to do is pull the HDD and cable out, reseat firmly and try again. May as well do the same for the CD/DVD drive.
