Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop won't recognize full 320 Gigabytes of new PATA hard drive. It's always been running a 80 Gigabyte 4200 RPM but that drive is old...a 2005 HD. New WD320 only reads 137...

The BIOS in the ACER determines the maximum size of the hard drive it can support.
Check the laptop's specification to see the max size you can install in this model laptop.
It appears that the max size your laptop can support is 140 Gb (unformatted). 137Gb formatted.

I suggest you install a hard drive up to 140 Gb capacity in your laptop and place the 320 Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and when you attach this hard drive to the USB port in your ACER laptop then you will be able to get the full 320 Gb capacity after you delete the partition and create a 320 Gb partition and format the hard drive.

Error Code 0141 - No driv detected

Hi anarosenfeld.

After researching all the information online, I found that the issue might be due to the Hard Drive or the CD/DVD Drive.

Based on the information provided by you on this email, I suggest that you perform the below steps:

1) Shut down the system if it is on, Remove the Optical Drive. See instruction in this link:

2) Power up the system, see if the malfunction is still present.

3) If the malfunction is still present please perform this actions:

4) Shut down the system, Remove the HD and put it back See instruction in this link:

5) Then, see if the malfunction is still present.

If the issue still persists even after performing the above steps, please perform the further troubleshooting steps which I have mentioned below:

1) Run the Drive Self Test (Hard Drive Diagnostic).

a) The first step to perform when you encounter errors with the hard drive is the drive self test. Depending on the system, this test can be run either from a CD or from the System Setup (BIOS). When you run the diagnostic test, you will be informed whether the diagnostic is able to test your hard drive.

b) Most recent Desktop, Portable, and Workstation systems have the hard drive diagnostic included in the System Setup. You will find detailed instructions on running this test at the following web address:

2) Hard Drive Cannot Boot, is not Detected or Reports Errors.

a) There are many steps that will help solve or least determine the exact cause of the hard drive errors you might encounter. You'll find easy-to-follow steps at the following web address:

Please perform all the steps mentioned above.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

The biggest drive that was offered with that was a 120gb. So you should be ok as far as the 320 size. I did a 80 to a 320 and it worked. There shouldn;t be any jumpers to set on the drive. So I would check the power connector if it is seperate. You should hear or feel the drive spin up even if it isn't detected. The next thing is to check the bios and see if it is detected. That might be all it takes is to open the bios and force it to detect the drive instead of auto.
You may need to do a bios update.

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

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd

This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dead hard drive, replacement not working

The solution is that you simply cannot go out and buy a replacement HD. You have to buy TOSHIBA's replacement HD.

They make a 40, 80, 160 and 320 GB HD for Tecra MV2's etc.- Other HDs simply will not detect.
