Question about Computers & Internet
Acer W500 tablet pc refused to boot after changing Hard Drive. I've tried putting back the 32gb drive but it simply is not coming on except for the blue windows icon that stays constantly on. Can any one give me a solution?
First , try getting a boot list by shutting it off , then turning on and pressing either F8 , F1 , F2 or F12 depending on the model .
The boot list will include " start normal , safe mode , safe with networking mode " , etc. Try using safe mode to boot .
If instead of safe mode you get into BIOS , use it's HARD DRIVE feature to recognize what size the drive is , save , and reboot .

SOURCE: ACER ASPIRE 5100 WONT BOOT
Try taking all of your ram chips out and re-seeting them. I upgraded to 4 gigabytes in my 5100 and it wouldn't boot, just a black screen with some cdrom and hd activity. Or try running with just one ram chip and then going into the bios and setting everything to default. this made my system bootable again.

Try to go into the bios and set the first boot device as your sata hdd. There will be a option in boot section of the cmos setup where the hdd drive order will be mentioned. If PATA is shown first press enter in the option select SATA and press enter save and exit changes things should go on fine.
Also check your pata hdd and cdrom specific jumper setting. For more help post your HDD model and make and cdrom model and the bios type

Testimonial: "That was it. MOBO was trying to boot off the 2nd hard drive (IDE). Once i made Sata primary boot it took off"
You need to go into the bios and select the primary boot drive to be the optical drive. You can usually enter bios by repeatedly hiiting the delete key or F2 when you power up.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.
