Hello, A disk controller failure can occur because of a few things:
A.) IDE or SATA controller failure. or B.) Hard drive failure.
Since this is a laptop, your most inexpensive troubleshooting and fix for this would be to test another ATA 5 hard drive in the machine. If you can successfully re-install Windows on it, the ATA/IDE controller is most likely fine and the issue is just with your hard drive.
Hard drives are easily replaced... controllers are not and would require a new motherboard.
YOU NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR MEMORY STICK OR BETTER STILL IF YOUR HARD DISK SPACE IS VERY LOW TRY AND UPGRADE ALL MEMORY BOTH YOUR HARD DISK SPACE AND MEMORY CARD ON YOUR SYSTEM IF ALL THIS DIDN'T WORK THEN THERE IS TOO MUCH OF VIRUS ON IT WHICH WILL CALL FOR RELOADING THE SYSTEM AS IN FORMATTING THE SYSTEM WITH A BOOTABLE DISK XP FOR RELOADING THE OPERATING SYSTEM.
Are you wanting to clear thr BIOS password? IF so the only way to do it on a laptop is to pull the CMOS battery out. Then boot the computer up to BIOS and it should be cleared, then just reinstall the battery.
Hello, Looks like you are on the right route, You seem very competant with this Notebook so perhaps HDD problem. Have you tried removing checking for possible loose connections then returning it carefully in its caddy. I'm not too familiar with the Acer models but had similar/same problems with Hp Nx 9010 and Nx 6125 both did exactly the same as yours right to the weird graphics. I removed the hard drives carefully tightened the caddy screws AND made sure the protective Aluminium Foil protection around the HDD was wrapped correctly as one had a lip which was creased by the way the last person fitted it. I replaced them very gently as not to bend pins or strain connections, yours maybe SATA so much easier. Good Luck! Paul 'W' Onyer~EDson(:0)~[>< U.K.
Hello, I have a 9010 and unfortunately it isn't bluetooth, as for infra red drivers they can be gleened directly from www.hewlettpackard.com
Good luck and a Very Merry Christmas.
Simply plug the ac adapter into the wall, the laptop will charge the battery itself.
Keep in mind this... in general, a laptop runs at full speed when it is plugged into the wall. When most laptops are running on battery, things are running more at 50% capacity to save on power, this giving you more battery life. A dimmer lcd and slowing the processor down when not needed are common traits.
You can use the FN key (function key) and the corresponding dim control on the keyboard to adjust the brightnedd of the backlight. It should be marked on your keyboard in a different color, like blue or maybe green (not familiar with that models keyboard).
