My acer chromebook AC710 SCREEN IS CRAZY CANT SEE ANYTHING BUT COLORS AN LINES WHAT TO DO?


The reason your monitor is in screensaver mode, (Read your other problem too), is there is no video signal coming to it.

No Signal

This is because the Netbook isn't sending one.

It isn't sending one because apparently you have graphics problems. Problems with graphics hardware.

So no, there is no Sync, or settings to change on the monitor.

(It is Not a video/graphics card. Your laptop uses Integrated Graphics. Intel HD 3000 Graphics )

However the point is moot now. Netbook is being sent in.

Point now is getting the info off the Harddrive, before some geek looses it.
(I'm a computer geek too, so that was no slam)

Remove the Harddrive. Then install it in an external enclosure.

You've seen an external enclosure, if you have seen an external harddrive.
You can buy just that 'outside case', too.

The external enclosure has a USB cable going to it.
The USB cable goes inside the enclosure, and connects to a small circuit board, with an interface on it.

The harddrive plugs into the interface.

The external enclosure comes apart VERY easily. Manufacturers make it easy to open the external enclosure, and install the Harddrive.

Usually a 2 piece case. One screw to open. Remove cover, plug Harddrive in, replace cover.
Plug USB cable into a USB port, on a working computer.

This is one example that will work with your Harddrive,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3195233&CatId=2783

[Harddrives are measured across their width.
A laptop harddrive is 2.5 inches across in Width. 2-1/2 inches.
A desktop harddrive is 3.5 inches across in Width.

Three technology styles of Harddrive, are presently being used;
1) IDE (PATA),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA

2) SATA,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

These two types of Harddrives use mechanical parts. For example a Spindle, Spindle Motor, and Platters,

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm

3) SSD,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSD

No mechanical parts. Just electronic components. (Solid State)

Your laptop uses a 2.5 SATA harddrive ]

Going on..................

I haven't had any direct dealings with this laptop. Or the Aspire V5-171 version.
I see no Service Manual listed.

Searching the internet for Harddrive replacement info though, I ran into that there is a large panel on the Bottom of the Netbook; which has a single Philips head screw in the middle.

Remove the screw, remove the large panel.
This is supposed to be in the User's Guide, but cannot seem to download it right now to see.

It will be in replace the Memory. Ram Memory.

The Harddrive should sit in a compartment area all it's own.
The Harddrive itself will be in a sheet metal Caddy. Harddrive Caddy.
Remove a screw, or screws; to remove Harddrive, and Harddrive Caddy.

Once screw/s are removed, L@@K at the Harddrive.
There should be a piece of 'silk strap', to pull on.

Keeping Harddrive flat, and down in Netbook, pull on the strap; and pull the Harddrive across towards the OUTSIDE of the Netbook.

You are unplugging it.

You DO NOT want to lift straight up on the strap, as you will bend contact pins.
Once the Harddrive is slid over, then lift at an angle; and remove.
Lift up on the Back of the Harddrive.
This is the opposite side of the one that plugs in.

Open the external enclosure case, slide the harddrive in; then close the external enclosure case. (Referring to Tigerdirect example. Other external enclosures will be different)

Plug the USB cable into any working computer's open USB port.
Look in My Computer/Computer. (WinXP/WinVista - Win 7)
The external harddrive will be shown.
DOUBLE-click on the drive letter it is next to.

Have problems with that post back in a Comment.

Your Netbook, is supposed to be just an ACER Aspire V5-171 series of Notebook PC; with a Chrome logo on it.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

WD 500G HDD suddenly un-readable; changed name to local disk, says I need to format in order to use it. I have tons of important stuff on there.


Could you confirm if the problem with the drive not being recognized is a problem with the USB cable? I have a 250GB passport and it worked fine with my XP. Once I decided to reformat it to NTFS and tried to do so by plugging into my new windows7 laptop the problems started.

When I start my laptop it makes loud beeps, then it says no hard drive detected... Whats wrong?


The harddrive is not working, or is not connected properly.

Shut the laptop down.
Remove the battery.
Turn the laptop upside down.
Remove the screws in order to remove the harddrive cap. (The acer laptops have small signs on the caps. The cap that has the little circe-cylinder signs on it, should unlock the harddrive)
Remove the screws keeping the harddrive in place.
Remove the harddrive.
Clean the connectors on both the harddrove as the motherboard.
Reconnect the harddrive and turn the laptop on.

If it is working, turn it off, and fit all the screws in again.

If it is not working, then you probably have to change the harddrive. You could also connect the harddrive to another computer, to make sure if it is broken.

Started up my dell inspiration 4100 laptop and it says no primary boot up devices and makes a click noise ,i went into the bios setup and it says down the list harddrive none constantly please help as just...


You must remove the battery for 12 min, and start your computer with the power cable.

Try opening the bios setup and change the boot order making harddrive no.1 in the boot order.

If all that not working, just press F12 and setup a new windows copy, may be the windows copy is damaged.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE HARD DRIVE FOR REPLACEMENT ON ASPIRRE 9504WSM


1) Remove the AC adapter, (Charger), if plugged in. Remove the Battery. There must be No electrical sources to the Notebook PC.
(Laptop)

2) Turn the laptop over, going from Right to Left. Bottom of laptop is now facing you.

3) On the left side there is a rectangular panel. The rectangle faces up, and down in length.

4) In the Middle, to the right of this panel is another rectangular panel. This panel faces horizontally in length.
This is the Harddrive Compartment Panel.

There are two Philips head screws on the right side of the panel. One on top, one on bottom. Loosen these screws to remove the panel.
(You will see a finger tab on the right of the panel, used for lifting the panel up, and out)

5) You will see a cloth strip attached to the back end of the harddrive.
Slip the cloth strip out. Grab the cloth strip with your fingers, pull back.

6) When the harddrive has cleared it's pins of the interface connector, lift the back end of the harddrive up, and slide the harddrive out.

CAUTION!!
Use care as you do not want to bend those tiny pins.
Refrain from touching the pins. If the harddrive is determined to be bad, it's okay.
When installing the new one though, refrain from touching it's pins.

Pasward compaq harddrive pls guide it open and chang bard hard


To reset the BIOS password you must take out the BIOS battery on the motherboard of the computer.

On most desktops this is not a hard thing. Simply take off the side of the case, then take out the quarter sized battery on the motherboard, wait 60 seconds then reinstall.

On a laptop the same thing must be done but I must recommend you take it to a local technition as this is not an easy thing to do if you have never opened up your laptop.
