Hi, first of all is it the addon drive u want to install or are u replacing the old drive, if its an addon drive then change the jumper to slave by removing any jumpers on the HDD, all open sets it to slave, i.e only if ur using the same cable which the old drive is connected or simply get a second IDE cable and without any jumpersettings, just plug it into the secondary IDE connector on the MOBO, u will then need a winxp boot disk or any HDD utility,, let me know

If this model Acer has a SATA controller then yes you can, but if it does not have a SATA controller then you can only install a ATA hard drive up to 80 Gb capacity.

Hi, I do understand your concern and how painful it is to have the notebook hang at you in the middle of a process.As you have tried installing the drivers several times this is not an issue related with any of the drivers on the computer and it could be either Windows related or else it would be surely to be an issue with the hard drive.If incase you have restored the computer to factory settings(by tapping on the Alt+F10 keys simultaneously as soon as you power on your computer and following the instructions of the Acer erecovery Management) then please do contact Acer if the laptop is covered by warranty to get the repair done or have the hard drive replaced.However incase the warranty has expired please do contact a local technician who would be able to assist you replace the hard drive. Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

My acer t310 no sound.. maybe because i didn't install sound card or something


You need to install the audio drivers for your computer. This can be found on the disk that came with your computer. Click here to download the audio driver On-Board Realtek RTL8100C. Or you may need to install the Onboard C-Media Audio driver it is located a third from the top. Depends on the audio controller used on your mainboard. Try the Realtek one first, if this doesn't work then try the C-Media audio driver.

Thanking you

I bought a new hard drive for my acer 5100 and it


The different model of hard drive should not make a difference. As long as you are using the same type....IDE or SATA...you should be fine.

If you installed the new drive and now the computer keeps rebooting....you probably need to tell the computer to boot from the CD first and not the Hard Drive. When you first turn on the laptop, boot into BIOS by hitting the DELETE or F2 key....it is normally the Delete key.

This will boot into BIOS where you can find the BOOT OPTION menu and select the CD as the first boot device. This will allow the computer to boot from the Windows CD you should already have in your cd drive.

If this does not help.... I would take the new hard drive out and boot the computer without any drive installed. If you are still in a reboot loop, the problem is not with the hard drive and more than likely an issue with the RAM. To rule out the RAM, take one stick out and see if that makes a difference...repeat with the second stick....

Hope this helps

Acer Aspire T310, no signal to monitor?


Check and make sure the monitor is good by using another computer on that monitor. If that is good then the cable is good. Are you getting any video display at all? Does it start and then lose signal or no signal at all? Is there on board video or a video card installed or both? If there is both have you tried both vga connections? If there is a video card installed make sure that it has not come loose and is fully seated. Does the computer have lights when it boots up....Hard drive activity ect?
