You have to format the other half to be able to use it. When you format it will allow access.

Operating system not found


In all likelyhood, the computers harddrive has went bad. To check this you need to get the to bois. Power up the computer and during the ACER spash screen hold down the Ctrl, Alt, and Esc keys. This should take you into the bois of the ACER. Look for a section on drives and see if the harddrive is listed. If not you will need to replace the harddrive.

My screen is splitting in 2


Connect the monitor to another (desktop or laptop) computer, to see if the problem "follows" the monitor.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer is sending the "wrong" video-output to your monitor.

I have a acer aspire t180 desktop with a 250gb hitachi scsi (ide) hd. I would like to know which hard drives are compatible so that I can exchange it. thanks


It's a SATA harddrive, not SCSI.

Serial ATA

Acer Support > Aspire T180 > Specifications >

http://www.acersupport.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT180/AspireT180sp2.shtml

Will use up to a 400GB SATA harddrive according to Acer.

IDE stands for Integrated Drive Electronics.
Another name is PATA.
Parallel ATA
Used to distinguish between IDE and SATA.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Drive_Electronics

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCSI

Exchange it?
Your harddrive has the Operating System on it.
A new harddrive will not have an O/S on it.
(Windows XP is an example of an O/S)

It would be much easier to install the harddrive you wish into an external enclosure, and plug the external enclosure's USB cable into your T180.

One example of a desktop size harddrive SATA external enclosure,
(3.5 inch SATA external enclosure.
3 and 1/2 inches across in width, for a desktop harddrive.
Laptop HD's are 2.5)
