Is it possible to remove the top optical drive bay's front panel and fit the optical drive without it?


The front panel drive panel needs to be removed so you can install an optical drive. There may be a metal panel behind the plastic front panel, if so this will need to be removed so the optical drive can be inserted into the drive bay.

I have acer aspire 5102wlmi and it does'nt boot. All it does is show the acer welcome screen and after that it shows Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration...


The acer laptops were well known for getting to hot, and in some cases would cause hang ups. If you have two sticks of ram in the memory, swap out each one because I have seen bad ram cause freeze up and this a good test to check for potential bad ram. Next pull the internal hard drive out and power on the computer to check for acer logo and a blank screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner, if all goes well! re-seat the hard drive back into place and attempt to reformat and dis-connect the external hard drive and any other external device. If you still have trouble, try the smart software to test the hard drive, if that is not available to you. The only other option is pull the internal hard drive and have it tested at a computer store for bad sectors. I suspect it is your hardware that is the problem, good luck and I hope this helps.

Hi. I think if your machine has no DVD or an Optical drive installed then you have to purchased one because you could RIP any CD or DVD without an Optical Disc Drive. Hope This Helps

Wont boot and says that no operating system can be found


Get a recovery disc for your computer (OS or a partitioning/utlity tool). You need to find out if you lost the MBR (the where is the OS information), the partition, or if the hard disc failed.

It's very likely that any repair attempt may reformat your hard disc. So consider a Live CD rescue tool and backing up if you haven't been consistently doing so. (Attach a USB hard drive or external optical drive for the backup data.)

Good luck and I hope this helps.

(who has a computer smart relative who reformatted the computer without salvaging the data to find out the hard drive was failing and that was why it lost the MBR the first time.)

Can i reformat my eee 904 hd winxp without an external optical drive


Unfortunately not. Unless you know someone that can convert a thumb drive into a Windows install disk, you cannot format without an external CD Rom drive.

Getting a error 320


Hello again,

Sounds to me that the software you are using is corrupt and if that is the case the only solution is to rebuild the OS by using a CD. This isn't uncommon, if their is a bad sector on the Hard Drive this can cause the software to error and become corrupt. A full reformat and installation is the only solution if the software is corrupt.

Hope that helps,

How to reformat ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook?


I have the linux version, not sure if you have the windows version or if it really matters. If you are looking to "reformat", you can go with the other suggestions with the USB stick. However, if you are reformatting to get back to the default settings, power on the computer and immediately hold F9. This will bring you to a screen that gives you the option to "restore factory defaults". You will lose all your previous settings, but if you were reformatting anyway, that's probably not a big concern.
