Question about Computers & Internet
Detach the machine from the power supply.
Turn the Acer Aspire 1360 over. Remove the battery.
The hard disk caddy can be seen centrally located from the battery bay (it is shiny metal). There is a piece of clear plastic attached to the back end of the caddy.
This is usually pushed back on itself under the plastic casing.
There are two screws located in the casing around where the HDD is located.
One is deepset and one is much nearer the surface.
Remove the deepset screw and put aside for later.
Get hold of the clear plastic strip attached to the HDD caddy (you may need a small screw driver to 'fish' it out). Gently pull the HDD caddy into the battery bay. It should come out quite easily, but you do need to apply consistent and mild force.
Once you have the caddy out, you will notice that there are two screws holding the HDD in it. Remove them carefully.
Remove the HDD from the caddy.
Putting back together is the reverse of the above.

what screen activity do you have when the machine starts
do you have a power light or battery light when the charger is plugged in?
