If u said that computer was working properly b4 u remove the HHD spare then your computer has a very litle problem on it.

If you don't see any display in monitor, except unplu cable. monitor is ok.

probably the problem is an accidentally lossen the some connections.

Fix all cable connection of your computer, and then the memory take it out the clean it and fix back,

take it out the VGA if it is add-on card clean it and fix back.

Do I need a new hard drive for my acer d260?


It sounds more like you haven't installed ubuntu correctly. Why do you think the drive is faulty, was it giving drive errors before you loaded ubuntu? Does the bios have s.m.a.r.t. disk checking enabled?

If you can get back into ubuntu perhaps by booting off an ubuntu disk you can check the disk - here's how How to run checkdisk
If not take the drive out get a sata to usb converter and run a disk checking utility on a friends machine
for example chkdsk space diskletter colon space / f
chkdsk e: /f

My computer will not boot. It clicks every 3 minutes, like a mechanical sound. What should I do? It is not the dvd. I took that out and the problem still exists.


check your hard drive. open the housing on the computer, find the hard drive, put finger on the hard drive and power it on, if you feel the clicks, then the hard drive failed.

When i turn on my fantom green drive the green light keeps flashing


If the light turns on (mine was blue) but the drive is not recognized on your computer desktop that most likely means the drive does not have enough power. This happened to me too, and I took it to a computer expert and he said the drive was not even spinning. So it was either the external power source that broke or the internal power source, the power panel that broke. I took it to a batter plus and tested the wattage for the external power source and it was okay so then i took the entire drive apart and disconnected the naked hard drive from the power panel. Then I purchased "SATA to USB" cables (runs around 10-20 bucks) and connected the naked hard drive that way to the computer and it worked. So the problem is basically that the internal power panel is not working, and i had 2 fantom drives that both had this problem and they both worked after i did what i just said.. so I think your drive has the same problem since the light comes on but the drive is not spinning. Take it apart, buy some SATA to USB cables and it should work.

If you may have de-fragged the hard drive recently and compressed the executable file for Windows. You can load into your windows back up ur file and reformat with a fresh load of the OS. You can as well try a Windows repair using your restore disk.

Gateway gm5442 very slow to boot, 20 to 30 minutes.


You said you tried different CPU, but it was the same motherboard, right? Maybe the motherboard speed (data bus, etc.) is just slow. Otherwise, there's not much left to try if the hard drive works OK in another computer and you've tried upgrading the memory, CPU, and power supply.

Powering Issues


Unplug the computer power,

Take a close look at the motherboard, find the cmos battery..usually looks like a big shiny nickel, carefully remove

Let the computer sit for 5 minutes.

Put the new hard drive back, if it works great. If not repeat with the old drive.

Let me know what happens.

Hard drive doesn't work


You cannot just throw a hard drive from one computer into another there are specific programs that perform specific jobs for individual components that are different in all computers.

Laptop hard drive


Hi,
If you have reinstalled windows, on this hardrive using a different computer, it would not load into windows on the nortino 6770, because the windows now has the settings compatible with the other computer not this machine.
To get around this problem, you would have to reinstall windows, by placing the haddrive in the 6770 only. To do this , you can either copy the contents of the windows cd , to a flash drive or pen drive ,and then connect the same to the USB port of the laptop.
The other way , is connect an external USB cd drive and install the same.


Best of luck

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.
