Windows vista is a large operational system that caused the very complaints that people were talking about and that is why window 7 came in because it is lighter and faster and takes less resources. But to address your problem sub out the ram memory one at a time to see if there is a difference, quite often reseating the ram will sometimes fix the problem.

If you mean a new hard drive inside you will have to buy a 2.5" hard drive and have someone qualified put it in the computer (do it at your own risk if you know how but if you don't it is easy to break something), then you will have to install windows on it (easy if you have the windows cd that came with your computer. If you are talking about an external one, then just buy one that is that size and plug and play.
Hi, "first," restart the computer, and click on the "Start Button," in the (right pane) select to open the Computer. Check to see if there's a DVD RW Drive (D:) in the "Device: with (Removable Storage) area." If the area is (Blank)? Go to and select All Programs,scroll to find the Media Disk Player. You may need to Setup / Install the player, and "Update the Drivers," when the (install is completed) follow all the instructions. "Remember to always click on the Apply and OK buttons after making the changes, and lastly, restart the computer." "If the problem still exist, try going to the "Device Manager" from the Control Panel, [Roll-back, and or Update Drivers], restart the computer. Next, in a final attempt to fix the problem go back to the (Control Panel), and select from the "Update Options' "Let me Choose... To update the drivers Manually" this will in stall the "original" (Drivers) that came with the computer. "Rating the solution for its helpfulness is appreciated, thanks."
It may take you quite a while to figure out how to solve this problem from trial and error. It will take less time if you:
RESTORE 1. Take the hard drive (HD) out of the PC 2. Attach it to an external drive case 3. Attach this to another PC and remove all of your DATA and store it external to the HD 4. Restore the system from scratch using Toshiba's restore tools 5. Put data back on.
Depending on if you made a copy of the System Restore CD when you first received your laptop, or if it was provided to you in your documentation, you can use this CD(s) to return your laptop to Factory Settings.
Else wise, you would need to purchase a copy of a version of Windows of your choice, following the system requirements and matching what you have in your systems owners manual. From there you would have to manually acquire any necessary drivers from your manufactures website in order for your hardware to work correctly, things like your video, audio, or other accessories may not work correctly without acquiring these drivers.

If Vista came installed on the computer originally you should be able to just run a system recovery (either from the had drive or from recovery discs made after buying the computer). When turning on the computer press Alt+F10 to start the recovery process. If you get a loading bar with "Loading Windows Files" above it then you're on the right track. It will allow you to reinstall windows Vista and will also install all the drivers you need.
If you can't get the Alt+F10 to work and don't have the recovery discs then you will either need to contact Acer and get a sent shipped to you, or find someone with a set of OEM discs that can reinstall it for you.
When you wiped the old computer and then reconnected to the new computer, it reformatted the player, causing data corruption. I would try all five of these suggestions, but first try uninstalling and reinstalling all Apple/iTunes software:
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50.
Its NOT the hard drive itself.
Its the master boot record on the hard drive that has failed.
The master boot record is like an index or an address book of a hard drive. It hold records of whats on the hard disk and the physical location of files and directory's.
What most likely happened was the computer was NOT shut down correctly and a power serge corrupted the master boot record or someone accidentally or purposely deleted files they should not have.
If you are not able to follow jmorgan123 advice, the easiest way to fix this is to re-install windows using the recovery disk (operating system cd), HOWEVER you WILL loose all your files on your hard drive as you will need to reformat your drive during the re-install.
If you are unsure how to install windows
put the system recovery disc in the drive and follow the on screen prompts.
If you still can get your computer working after you try a re-install of windows, maby your best bet is to return the computer under the warranty.
