Question about Acer (91.AB033.041) 73 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Not reading software

I have an Acer 5500 notebook (80 GB hard drive) that no longer reads anything in any of the drives. Is this total disaster or can it be fixed?

    The hard drive has been replaced twice already on my 1 1/2 year old Acer Aspire 5300 notebook and it looks like it needs to be replaced again. Is this common for this computer because my desktop has never needed this and is an older machine.

Hi, If the PC still powers on and POST then should be reasonable to repair. Assuming that you have to replace the 80Gb HD, that will set you back something like 80USD. Physical replacement is relatively easy, you can do it yourself. Of course you would need the recovery CD/Windows installers to put in Windows again. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

    If the CD/DVD drive is also due for replacement, I don't expect it to cost "that much".

If you mean what size hard drive, go to system settings then system information. There will be a line that reads NNN GB / NNN GB where NNN is a 2 or 3 digit number. The second number gives you the total available hard drive space. The first number is what you are using of that space.

In my case, the second number reads 232 GB when I actually have a 250 GB hard drive (some space is reserved for the system), so round your second number up to whichever is closest to either 12, 20, 40, 60, 80, 120, 160, 250, 320, 500 and that's your answer.

I think your answer is 120 GB based on your model number.

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.

Not reading correct gb


What is it reading?

Note that 74.5 times 1024 times 1024 times 1024 divided by 1000 divided by 1000 divided by 1000 is 80.

So, if you use base-ten arithmetic, you have an 80Gb disk,
but if you use base-two arithmetic, you have a 74.5GB disk.

Total size is not 80 GB IDE Hard Drive


Hi,

Two possible solutions but both calls for another software/utility.
1. Use FDISK but you should be booting and running in DOS mode;
2. the other is Partition Magic which runs under Windows environment.

The idea is to delete the existing partition (that shows only 31.50Gb) and thereafter re-partition to the full capacity of the drive. of course doing so would erase the contents. Further, a format after the re-partition is required.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
