SOURCE: USB Ports

THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS WHICH CAN CAUSE THAT

  1. is your O/S version up to date? There have been updates to the USB support in every version of Windows go to windows updates
  2. is your system BIOS is up to date. BIOS support is an important part of USB support, you can update depending on the manufacturer
  3. Make certain that your USB Hardware drivers are up to date.
  4. If you're using Windows XP run the system file checker to be sure that Windows is not damaged
  5. update spyware and virus scan
  6. make sure that'any software that came with the hard is up to date, and installed properly.
if do these i believe the problem will b solved but if it persist let me know

SOURCE: My Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop wont detect the hard drive

If it works on another computer then either the ide cable in the acer is bad/loose at either end or the ide controller on the motherboard is bad. I would try a known good ide cable first as if this is the problem it is fixable alot cheaper than a motherboard. Hope this helps.

I have kingston Dataatravelor 4 GB... It cannot detect on my PC, I try it another pc too. But no working. Please Help me


Try connecting USB drive on some other systems if it is being detected by them there is something wrong in your system else the usb drive is damaged.

When you attach the usb drive, after that right click on my computer icon and click Manage option. After that under Manage console select Disk Management, look for removable drives (that is your usb drive) under it and then format it. It will be formatted.

If both these things didn't worked then your pen drive might be damaged.

Thanks !!

How to restore accer to factory settings


Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer.

To start the system recovery:

  1. Restart the netbook.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. In order to recover the system using Acer Recovery Media, an external optical disc drive is required.
  1. Restart the netbook.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F2 key repeatedly.
  3. Press the Left Arrow key until you've selected Boot.
  4. Ensure that the external optical drive is plugged into a USB port.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to USB CDROM.
  6. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  7. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  8. Press the F10 key and then the Enter key to save the changes and restart the netbook.
  9. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  10. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
    Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.

  11. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media you may purchase recovery media online. If your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery please contact Acer Support

Cd rom not detected what can i do to resolve this mater


External CD drives are usually have a USB interface, therefore, either the usb drivers have not been loaded for this particular device or the chipdet drivers are old and need to be updated. Chipset drivers can be downloaded at the Acer support site, put in your laptop model and then choose the operating system, your downloads will appear. USB drivers for the external CD drive can be obtained from either the manufacturers website or if there is a mini cd rom of the drivers, you would need to put those drivers on a flash drive from another computer and load the drivers through the flash drive.

Acer Aspire 5100-5674 won't boot. Keyboard won't work, mouse initializes. PXE-E61 : Media Test Failure then PXE-M0F : Exiting PXE ROM I really need some help, I just bought it. And would really like to...


PXE errors are generated by the network boot ROM. In other words, the boot process is attempting a network boot (your BIOS' 4th boot option), which means that your system was unable to boot from a HDD, CD-ROM, or USB device (the first 3 boot options).

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot:

1.Go to Bios Settings
2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option.
3.Save The configuration

Also verify if your harddisk is detected by BIOS

USB ports wont recognize anything I plug in


Are you using XP? If so:
Here is what you can do to refresh the USB ports:
1. Right click MY COMPUTER
2. Select PROPERTIES
3. Select HARDWARE
4. Select DEVICE MANAGER
5. Select UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS
6. Right click on each USB CONTROLLER and select Uninstall
7. Uninstall all entries
8. Reboot your computer
9. As your computer re-boots it will reinstall all USB connections it detects
THEN, when all other USB items have been configured and connected by the system, you then should try connecting your USB device.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

CD/DVD drive and external harddrives via USB not acessable


I once had a problem like this. It turn out that i just forgot to plug of my external drive. because of the lack of power of the device, it wasnt functioning properly. Try to see if you have two USB plugs, or one Usb plugs with a power cable.  Re check if both of the plugs are indeed connected properly.

Acer 5100 lost dvd/cd drive


Is the DVD drive listed in device manager under CD/DVD drives at all? If so, remove it and reboot. Windows might be able to re-detect and reinstall the drivers for it, but odds are the drive is bad. You can try removing the drive from the computer, and use compressed air to blow out the area where it connects to the laptop. Also check the connection on the DVD drive to make sure there isn't any physical damage, bent pins, etc.

Hope this helps - remember to rate!
