You can go up to 120 GB for this model computer. Following is a link to Drive Solutions, Inc. It shows a 120 GB ATA drive available for your drive. ATA is the formal name for an IDE drive.

Here's the link:

Am I able to replace acer aspire t310 ata 40 gig with 200 gig sata hard drive


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.

How to install hard drive


First unplug power and leads including internet, then you will need a screw driver to get the side cover off, make sure to touch a bare metal piece to prevent static discharge. unclip the sata cable and power from the hard drive, unscrew the fixture screws holding the hard drive in place, remove and replace with new hard drive....or of you are adding another for extra storage look for a vacant bay to house the new drive, there should be a spare power lead for the drive but you may need to purchase another sata lead if you dont have one, attatch the sata lead to the motherboard then attatch the other end to the hard drive then the power lead. Close the lid and re-boot, the new drive should be picked up by windows 7 or vista, if you have installed a new drive with no operating system you will need a bootable op disc

My Hard Drive is rattling, sometimes squeals, Aspire AX1200-B1601A


Hi rip195454

Sounds like your hard drive is close to failure.
If I was you I would transfer all the important files,pictures,etc from the hard drive to a portable hard drive as quickley as possible.
Time to replace the hard drive in your PC, besure you have the restore discs that came with the machine, or that you made when the computer was new as you will need them when you put a new hard drive in your desktop.
Please take time to rate me

Acer aspire 2920


Disreguard the product recommendation. You posted your question in the hardware recommendation section which is for upgrades and such.

For a lap top you can unplug the batteries and power cord. Then press and hold the power button. This is called a power-drain.

Then I would remove the hard drive and make sure there are no bent pins (if older IDE type). Then I replug the hard drive
and replace the batteries and power plug.

Reboot the laptop and enter bios. See if the hard drive is detected. I

F still nothing, try another hard drive in the lap top

or

try that hard drive in another machine/hard drive enclusure to see if it works.

If the harddrive checks out then maybe the laptop hard drive connection is damaged.
That would be verifed with another hard drive.

Hope this helps.

My OS freeze's as soon as i input my password


Hi there.
Sorry but i have to inform you that your hard drive is failing, the error messages that you are getting relate to this fact and is related to the hard drive having unrecoverable bad sectors or immanent hard drive failure.
There is no way you can recover the drive!!
Your only option now would be to buy a new drive for the computer or if the machine is still under warranty take advantage of that and send it in for repair, you will no doubt have to purchase a windows installation disk too.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

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.

I just wanna know how to replace an acer laptop hard drive with a bigger one


Usually you

1) purchase the new hard drive
2) look around the base of your laptop to find where the HDD is, if you look at the manual which im sure acer will have on its site it will show you
3) usually 1 or 2 screws are unscrewed and you slide out the hard drive, it will be in a special holder
4) unscrew the old hard drive and insert the new one and secure it in place like the old one.
5) insert, re-do screws up, turn on laptop.

this new hard drive wont have any information on it so you will need to reinstall windows on that drive.
