    thanks for the help did as you suggested
    chkdsk found loads of bad clusters and said it replaced them and also unreadable files and just removed them took ages after that i reloaded os and it sort of worked windows loaded but the disk is still ruined (i think)whenever i reboot it automatically recommend i run chkdsk again and does the cluster thing again then nothing works and i have to reload the os again,think a new hdd is required ithink its pretty simple to replace just slots out the back

Try booting to any win xp OS cd ,
chose recovery console option
Then chose installation (1: WINDOWS)
Type Password if one is used on that OS ,
at prompt type this > Chkdsk /R
(Note) Might take several mins to perform
Remove cd from tray ,type exit to reboot
Hope it works .. if not I agree a hdd replacement is most likely in store. Assuming the hdd just didn't get jarred lose as posted earlier .

You can try to reseat the HDD, that may resolve the issue. More than likely, there has been some damage to the HDD. Try running checkdisk to see if there are errors on the HDD.
If you need help, please let me know.

    I would say that there's probably a 90% chance that replacing the HDD, will get you back up and running.

Dont have the original hard disk in my aspire 3000, but I want to restore it to factory settings ??

Go to the acer site, they have the software. I assume you had everything on the old hard drive. Load windows onto your new hard drive. It will detect all your hardware. Actually, since you changed hardware, it no longer is an aspire 3000. I changed out all my stuff in my acer aspire to keep it up to date. The only thing left is the box. As you change hardware the motherboard will detect and adapt. You may still see the aspire logo as it is burned into the bios.

Acer 3000 not loading


firts put the original harddrives back in place :)
then you need to enter the 3000's bios If I remember right
thats done by pressing f2 or del in a acer. it should tell you what button is correct on the bootup screen.

Then you need to change the boot order to haveing the dvd/cd drive before the harddrive, since right now its booting strate from the harddrive.

Then you should be able to restore the operateing system with the disks that came with the laptop and or from a normal xp or vista cd/dvd.

good luck!
