Went to buy a new hard drive and was told i needed to purchase the operating system also is this true?


No, the hard disk has nothing to do with what OS are you going to use; you can install whatever OS you want, even a free Linux, or if you install the hard disk along another one that already has an OS installed.

I have an acer aspire one laptop and have tried to connect my orange mobile dongle to it but it wont actually connect is this something to do with linux and if so can i do something about it?


WIFI dongles are very scewy anyway let alone one trying to use a third party operating system. I have never seen one that stated it was compatable with Linux so yes it prolly is a conflict with your operating system. That PC runs great with XP or Win7 buy an OEM CD off Newegg for about $99. All ur drivers are on Acers website. The only 1 u will need to load is the SD card the others are embedded in XP and Win7. If u use Win7 u may try the Vista driver 4 the SD card.

I think I have a bad hard drive on my Acer model #BL50. I can't get past the acer logo screen. Help! What do I do?


If you have a Windows disk, put it in the CD and see if you can boot from that. You didn't say what operating system you have, but you should be able to boot from a CD/DVD if the system is working properly.
Once you boot it, you'll need to get to the command prompt (varies according to your operating system) and see if you can see drive C:
You should also, on startup, press the key that puts you into setup (normally F2). You can then look at the system devices and see if it reports that there is a hard drive. If it fails the tests, above, then your hard drive is probably bad.

When checking this, I always see if I can get to the drive by booting from a CD/DVD first.

Acer aspire 5630 wont boot up


it may be that the harddrive had broked, or is not properly mounted. Try removing it and then reatach it. what operating sistem do u use ?!

also try booting with a linux live cd and see if it can accesc the hard drive, if it cant, than thatşs u're problem. If it can, than u have to find out what PXE-E61 is (what component), and then test it (i presume is the hard drive or the optical unit)
