How does a hard drive looks like? I'm getting a error msg saying that hard drive is bad!!

How old is your hard drive ? Hard drives eventually fail due to normal usage or it could be something else. You need to provide more information.

My internet wont work anymore because i downloaded an update ( Windows home premium) on my acer x1200 I want to wipe / recover my computer to its original facttory settings but ive tried everything. I dont...

Click: Start
Click: All Programs
Click: Accessories
Click: System Tools
Click: System Restore

Pick a "restore-point" that was taken _before_ the update was applied,
and restore your system to that previous date/time.

OR ....

Look under "All Programs" for a utility that will help you burn CD/DVD(s) to create a "Recovery Disk" set. Burn more CD/DVD(s) with all your "data" files (or copy all your data-files to an external hard-drive). Then, boot from the "Recovery Disk", to begin the process of restoring the "factory" settings.

Can i install 2 harddisk drive in one computer, how, does it have any effect in my pc, i have two low capacity disk, and i want to have bigger space, thanks

yes you may be able to,but it depends on some things and how you want to add them.

if you want to have them as an internal device ,ie in the case and always available with your operating sytem, then you need to know what conection they require to be plugged in. some examples are sata,ide,scuzzi.most latest hard drives are sata ,the most popular are ide guessing you most likely have ide hd's.

good thing with them is you can connect two harddrives on the same ide have to set 1 up as master the other as slave.this is done by adjusting the jumpers on the physical hard disk.the jumpers are located on the bottom corner of the hd next to the power and ide interface.their willl also be a diagram to show how to set master/slave on the hd in most cases.

benefits are more storage and speed but in the above case because you use the same cable for both disks.

if you dont know alot and are not confident in installing them personally and just require more space,i iwould suggest buying a cheap kit $20 ,and using your spare \hd as an external usb disk.

if ive assumed wrong or you need more help ,let me know

good luck and let us know how it pans out

Regarding External Hard drive

Hi, at bootup go into the bios settings and make sure you have enabled the drive, some bios settings need to have any drive over 160Gb enabled. Do an auto detect and see how that works. Regards mistyman
