SOURCE: Dear Mr/Mrs How do I replace

Hi There,

not a difficult job, as long as you have your restore discs. When you put a new drive in, you will need to re-install everything.
Have a look on the base of your laptop, there will be a few access panels. Remove these and beneath one will be your Hard Drive. Remove the hard drive (usually it should slide away from its mounting point) and check the model number to aid you finding a replacement. Replacing is simply removing your old drive from the metal case which holds it and fitting the new drive in its place, slide back in, refit your access panels and run your system restore discs.

If you do not have restore discs then you will be able to do an install from any windows installation disc but may have to hunt about for driver files on the internet. Do a search for acer support and you should be directed to an acer driver download site.

If you dont have access to restore disks or installation media, there is software about which allows you to clone your original hdd (as long as it is still operational) and transfer it to another drive but you normally have to buy this software. Something like Acronis will help you.

Hope this helps.

If your computer is asking for a bootable disk drive on startup, it typically indicates drive failure and your harddrive needs replacement. Sorry for the badnews.

Acer Aspire 8930G 0xd0000017 recovery error


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop. A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop. It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature. You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard. Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.

Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive. Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook. Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load. Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen. Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot the netbook when you are prompted. Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

I own an Acer Aspire 8930G, and as of a few weeks ago, it will not power on. At first I thought it was the AC adapter at fault, as the wire on the side that is inserted into the laptop had a small cut in...


This is a long shot but take out the battery and leave it a couple of hours then replace and place it on charge overnight then retry next day, you have maybe already tried that, the only other thing I can think of is get a multimeter or someone who knows how to use one and check that the voltage is kicking out 19v DC from the charger

Can I change a aspire 8930g from a vista 64 bit to a xp 32 operating system


I went to the Acer Pan American site (http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/) and navigated to the aspire 8930g page for drivers. The 'drop-down' window allows you to select Windows XP (Pro or Home) and provides a list of drivers for you model laptop. Check it out!

The Acer I bought for my Son last Xmas had the option of producing a full set of recovery disks and a drivers disk. If you have this option and you have used it then you have a way back to a functioning laptop if you have problems with the O/S change.

Download the drivers you need for the laptop accesories you have BEFORE YOU CHANGE THE OPERATING SYSTEM. Do your change then install your drivers. It appears from the surface that you should be able to do this change.

Bd-rom in Acer Aspire 8930G - not working


You could have a faulty DVD/CD drive.
Take it back to the shop as the laptop is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as it might void your warranty.
