Installing a new hard drive

Hi I just got hold of an Acer 514T and I want to upgrade the hard driveon it, I was just wondering how to get at it on these machines? I mean I've dealt with hard drives on IBM's before and that was easy enough but I cant see a way to get to it on the Acer. My only idea was to open it up but I didnt want to do that before I found out if there was an easier way.

Hi there
Underneath the laptop you will find some panels with screws in them, 1 is for the memory, 1 is for the hard drive and so on, the laptop HDD will look similar to this >>>>> Installing a new hard drive - b1923bb.jpeg.
They are pretty easy to replace once you are familiar with them.
If you can't find it underneath it will be hidden behind a panel at the front or sides of the laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    I have an Acer TravelMate 514T PC Notebook running with only 64MB RAM, and I want to put in a 256 MB RAM. How do I make the notebook recognize the 256 MB RAM card?


    Mostly what I came across this models they only can detect until 128 mb and they do run a little faster than having 64 mb.And see if the card is pc100. and it is also dependent on what is your operating system is.If your notebook memory slot is two get two 128mb and you'll have 256mb.

    Hi i m hems i m upgrading hard disk on my ( acer aspire 1641nwlmi ) laptop hard disk is 160 gb but it's not detecting my new hard disk , my new hard is ok but i have quistion 160 gb is supporting my laptop...


    The Aspire 1641 is supplied with a 80Gb hard drive. If the new 160Gb hard drive is not detected in the BIOS then the BIOS cannot support this size hard drive.
    Check your manual/specification to see the maximum size hard drive it can support.
    You can install the 160Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

    Price actually depends on where you make your purchases, do some research to locate the best price and yes you can upgrade your hard drive and memory, I am unsure of the type of memory your laptop needs however the hard drive you need is a 2.5 inch sata drive

    Installing windows on acer notebook help


    you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

    to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.
