    Here is a good article concerning Hard Drive passwords..bottom line is NO ONE can open it. You cannot retrieve your data and you cannot get the system to get around the password...

    So when you turned it on didn't you have to type a password in?

    Did you move the hard drive from another laptop into this laptop?

Ok, on boot. go into f2 and it should bring up a blue screen saying stuff about setup. scroll down to where it says passwords and password related icons. and go into your settings and change them.

Dont have the original hard disk in my aspire 3000, but I want to restore it to factory settings ??


Go to the acer site, they have the software. I assume you had everything on the old hard drive. Load windows onto your new hard drive. It will detect all your hardware. Actually, since you changed hardware, it no longer is an aspire 3000. I changed out all my stuff in my acer aspire to keep it up to date. The only thing left is the box. As you change hardware the motherboard will detect and adapt. You may still see the aspire logo as it is burned into the bios.

Thats called the blue screen of death. Do you hear any clicking from the hard drive at all? Have you gotten it wet? Have you dropped it? This most likely is a result of hardware failure but can also be caused by malware. Do you have another computer with CD burning capability? You could burn a few hardware tests onto cds and test the memory and the hard drive. google memtest86 for a memory test and DFT or Drive Fitness Test for a hard drive test utility. These have to be booted to by the laptop.

Noisy laptop computer


If your looking for a tool to diagnose the hard drive you need to go to the hard drive manufacturers website
Eg for a hitachi/travelstar drive you can get a copy of DFT (drive fitness test) from hitachi site

You can create the install disks from acers in built recovery console.....typically takes about 2 dvds

Weird noise from Acer Aspire 3000


When you open the sound control panel, is the mic muted or turned down? The feedback may have been coming from the built-in microphone?

Could be a bad memory chip or a hard drive crash. Can you hear the hard drive engage? If so, is there any clicking or dull thunking sounds? Both of these are indicators of a hard drive failure.
