My Acer Aspire e500 doesnot detect the HDD while installing both Win7 and XP but i can see the HDD if i connect to other PC

Try connecting to another PC as you mentioned and format the drive as NTFS.Do a full format, not a quick format, and the drive should be in prime condition to be read by the OS installers.

Acer aspire e500, it will not boot up. one led work.(middle "CD")


Does it display the boot screen?

Do you hear a buzzer or a beeper go off inside?

Sometimes a boot can be stopped by the ram, this is generally made visable by a buzzer or a beeper going off, this will stop the computer to prevent damage.
If it is this, you can get a new ram for about £20, pc world etc, and if you keep the packaging in good condition, you can return it, and just say it didnt work, so you dont loose anything, but youd need to put it in your self, you just unplug the computer, take off the cover, release the ram clips, take the old ram out, and replace it with the new one.

2) Another weird thing which can stop the boot is the ....DVD drive.
I had the same problem before with one of my clients, and for some strange reason, when I removed the DVD player, the computer booted.
So try un connecting your DVD drives, and then try booting

3) Are there any sensors or buttons on the case?
Some PC's have sensors and buttons on the case, with cut of the power if you take the cover off while its running.
It could be that there is a button or a sensor not coming in contact with its connector, and therefore, preventing the computer to boot up.

I hope this helps you,

How to format acer e500 with partition

its the same way just about with all computers.... do this

restart computer
enter your bios
open your boot options
make sure your boot methods are as follows
1. cd-rom
2. floppy
3. hard drive disk

then you insert your windows OS make sure its a bootable disc then hit F10 for some computers to exit and save changes....

your computer will restart and then go through the loading then prompt you to hit any key to boot from cd.... make sure you dont actually look for the any key button lol!!!

Using Windows XP. Want to copy vidoe from Media

Is the drive you are using a DVD writer or only a DVD reader? The drive that writes to RW disks is labeled DVD/RW or DVD Recordable.
These are the only drive types that will read and write a DVD/RW disc.

Sometimes the DVD drive will not open. It is fairly annoying.

Go to My Computer and right clicked on the DVD Rom drive and clicked eject. If any error appears let me know. Also try to insert a straightened paper clip into the designated hole on the CD/DVD drive casing to manually force an eject. If it is not worked replace the cables(master slave).
Thanks Good Luck

My acer aspire e500 has no hard disk aactivity

Try to discinnect CD/DVD driver also when you power on main cor dont instantly power on case, wait 5 minutes and then try. Such kid of failureas are causer by power adaptor system. Also try bios reset put off battery and wait 5 minutes to reset CMOS also power cord must be unpluged. Unplug and plug power sources to mainboard. then turn on.
