Question about Acer Aspire 1690 Notebook
This laptop works with no hard drive caddy, but with the caddy installed, it does not recognize the hard drive in the BIOS.
Also I tried it with a different hard drive and it did not recognize the other drive with or without the caddy.
When it goes through startup, it loads Windows, and runs perfectly.
I bought this laptop on eBay with problems. They said it had a flaky motherboard. When I got it I could see that it had been taken apart, and not quite put together in the proper sequence... After diss-assembling and re-assembling the unit, it fit together much better. I had to purchase the hard drive caddy (have verified that it is the correct one), and memory for it.
I was going to sell it as a refurbished unit, but I certainly cannot with this kind of problem, so I gave it to my 5 year old, and it sits on her little desk. It occasionally does not recognize the hard drive on startup, but re-booting works for now...
If u know to use soldering iron then try to resolder the connecter of HDD on the mother board...dont forget to remove the processor before do any thing...thats all....
