    WinXP SP2.. I also emailed the Acer support here in our country and this is what I got:

    "Good day.

    Total capacity of hard drive that Aspire 3620 series can accommodate is 120 GB but the hard drive that you have installed is too much exceeding to the limit that this model can access that can be the possible reason on hang up and other irregularity that you were encountering.

    Thank you very much!

    My brother at home (using the laptop now) said that it was already SP3.. we also partitioned the 320gig drive..
    C: (150gig)
    D: (150gig)

    ..respectively.

    Should we partition the C: to make it a bit smaller?
    C: 80gig (WinXP-SP3)
    D: 70gig
    E: 150gig

    First of all, what kind of interface connector is it? Is it IDE or SATA?

    IDE would be the 40-pin connector, and SATA would be an odd-looking slot, just in case you were wondering.

Yes, the 320gb HDD will work.
Silly me, what I meant to ask was what OS you were running. I'm assuming anywhere from XP SP3 to Vista?
Either way, the 320gb will work.

    I recommend updating your Windows XP operating system to Service Pack 3, available for download on the Microsoft website.


    What the tech meant was that Windows XP can only support up to 160gb. You can partition the hdd so that you have XP installed on one half of the disk and use the other half for storage. The motherboard will support the hard drive, you just need to partition it to be able to use it for Windows XP.

    If XP is already running smoothly, then you should leave it as is.


    If it is having trouble reading the partition, then go ahead and partition the drive again to make it how you have it planned.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop won't recognize full 320 Gigabytes of new PATA hard drive. It's always been running a 80 Gigabyte 4200 RPM but that drive is old...a 2005 HD. New WD320 only reads 137...


The BIOS in the ACER determines the maximum size of the hard drive it can support.
Check the laptop's specification to see the max size you can install in this model laptop.
It appears that the max size your laptop can support is 140 Gb (unformatted). 137Gb formatted.

I suggest you install a hard drive up to 140 Gb capacity in your laptop and place the 320 Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and when you attach this hard drive to the USB port in your ACER laptop then you will be able to get the full 320 Gb capacity after you delete the partition and create a 320 Gb partition and format the hard drive.

OK look any drive, that's is the format, ie: STA or IDE? and that will fit will work, that 320GB will be OK. Simply install the HDD in the bay, and then use a windows installation disk, or similar to format it, just format it as ONE big partition, that should be fine, IF you find that it will not "See" the HDD, then partition it into smaller partitions. However you should be OK. You need to FIRST test to see if the actual PC is OK, try a HDD before you buy a new one, make sure that it is actually working.

You cannot get the full 320Gb capacity because the BIOS can only support a maximum of 127Gb.
You only hope is a BIOS firmware upgrade that can support 320Gb. Check out the Acer WEB site to see if a BIOS upgrade will solve your problem.
OTHERWISE
Install a 127Gb hard drive in your Acer and put the 320Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive because it is not affected by the BIOS limitation.

It looks like there's a 500GB drive out there for it, so I'm going to guess you can at least go to 500.

Take a look at this. They guarantee 100% compatibility it seems:

HDD capacity greater than 128GB with Acer Travelmate 2300


ive had a look on the acer website and there is a replacement bios available , but theres no mention if it would enable large Hd support , rather than flashing your bios and potentially destroying your laptop i would purchase a external drive , you can get the enclosures for 10-20 pounds and fit a decent size HD in this

Maximum HDD capacity of an ACER Travelmate 212 TX


Yes you can install a 20 Gb hard drive but I doubt you can buy a new one with that small capacity. The smallest capacity hard drives are approx. 80 to 100 Gb or greater.
You most likely can buy a 2nd hand drive but you don't know its quality, it may have had a hard working life and you don't know how long it will last, but then, if is very cheap that may not be a problem.
