I would try removing the hard drive with the laptop turned off without the power adapter connected. Then reinstall the hard drive and reconnect the power adapter. Check in the BIOS to see if the hard drive is reconogized. If all this fails I recommend replacing the hard drive and reloading the operating system

Ca i replace the hard drive in a acer aspire one 8'9 with one from a hp mini110? thankyou


Hi

most laptop hard drives are same size 2.5
but the hard drive from the hp may have a different face plate or holder but can easily be removed

also the os system on the hp will not load up and work on the acer
you will have to
either use windows easy transfer to copy your entire hard drive files and save onto spare hard drive
so that when you replace and format different hard drive you can then transfer it back onto new hard drive

or if pre windows 7 os you could use something like norton ghost to copy your existing operating system and files and make a system image and store on spare hard drive then when you replace the hard drive
you boot up with norton ghost and ask it to find the image and restore it to the new drive

Or if your lucky enough to have the operating installation disk or can get your hands on another retail installation disk you can reload a new operating system using the product code which should be on a sticker on the base of your laptop

Hope this was useful to you

Panasonic CF-51 computer getting stuck, and making clicking noise. Have to turn off manually and restart.


Hi,

Listen carefully to the HDD bay of the CF-51, If the "Clicking" sound is coming from that area then it is possible that the hard drive is failing causing the whole laptop to freeze up.

If that is the case then you're looking at a new or replacement hard drive.




Regards.

Gets stuck on the "asus" screen when i trun my laptop on.


Could be that the hard drive is not making a good connection. Turn the laptop upside down. Find the "latch" where the hard drive is "housed" and remove the drive... Then carefully and firmly replace it and make sure it makes good contact. Then try again to boot the laptop. If it still does not start up TAKE IT BACK to where you bought it from and let them sort it out 'cause it is supposed to be under warranty for at least 1 year
