Acer data projector

I have an Acer Aspire 1413 WLMi Laptop, about a year ago I had to reformate my hard drive. I reload all the programmes, setup, etc that came with the computer, (Acer CD package and use Windows XP). However, I have not been able to get the computer to communicate to a data projector. Before the reformate there was no problem it was almost immediate communication between the two. When connecting the 2 together I have the laptop off, connect the data projector, put the data projector on , then the laptop. The Windows startup screen comes up on the projector, and the laptop is completely black and after a while the data projecotor say "searching" on a blue screen. The laptop runs through all setup programmes and does not acknowledge that the data projector is connected as aditional hardware found, etc I have tried the F5 button a number of times but it does not work. When selecting F5 the computer screen then goes black and I have to do and emergency shutdown on the laptop as it freezes. What do I need to do to fix this?

    Same problem here. Had it on XP, reinstalled PC with Vista and still doing the same. Was told by repair company that it might be a chipset failure on the notebook

Over a year ago my acer 5315 laptop stopped working as im not sure why since then i have brought a new laptop, but on the acer it has some old docs and stuff


Ti retrieve the data from your old laptop, remove the hard drive and insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and then connect it into the USB port of your new laptop. Your new laptop will see this as an external mass storage device and you can then open the various folders and files on this hard drive to copy or view them.
If your new laptop cannot detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is faulty.
If you desparately need the data off this old hard drive then there are companies that can retrieve data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you and arm and a leg for their services.

The laptop makes a constant clicking sound


Sounds like the hard drive is having problems. Try running CHKDSK to check for errors and a good anti virus programme if that has no effect, try saving your data to another drive before it is lost and then fit a fresh hard drive loading your programmes back on.
It is a laborious task but better than losing all of your stuff!

How to reformat acer aspire one


If you are replacing or reinstalling the operating system you will need your installation disk. The installation disk will ask you if you want to format the drive before reinstalling. If you otherwise want to wipe the hard drive you can usually download tools for your hard drive manufacturer. Basically you cant format the drive thats currently being used. You have to boot from a CD.

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.
