Question about Acer Veriton 7200D PC Desktop

1 Answer

What hard drive do I put in an Acer Veriton 7200/7200D Desktop?

I purchased online (auction) an Acer Veriton 7200 (vt7200) desktop. It is used and is coming with no hard drive. I have not received it yet to open it up and explore it, so I don't have much info to go in other than what was listed in the auction. The info tag on the computer says vt7200, but the ad says that it is a P4 1.9 Veriton D7200 with 256MB RAM.

What is stressing me out is I am trying to find a hard drive for the thing and I have yet to find out what hard drive it will take! My goal is an inexpensive hard drive with around 20 or 30 gigs. I don't require anything with a massive size or blistering speed for this computer. I just need to know what it is compatible with and what I can go a huntin` for. I went with an Acer hoping it would be less proprietary and temperamental than other brands. Any leads would be helpful.

    Okay, according to my reading of the non-detailed Acer documentation, I have a new question: Does this mean as long as I stay within the parameters of making sure it is an "EIDE ATA-100 Ultra" then it is compatible?

    Should I give this one a shot?:

    20 GB Western Digital IDE Hard Drive WD200BB-75CAAB


    • 20 GB Hard Drive

    • 7,200 rpm

    • DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra) - 40 pin IDC


    • Seek time - 8.9 ms (Average) / 21 ms (Max)

    • 2 MB Buffer

According to Acer you will need an EIDE Hard Drive. Originally that model came with a 20 GB Hard drive. Should be relatively inexpensive if you can find one.

Here is a link for a manual on your system you can download: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/v7200ug.pdf

How do i replace hard drive on my acer veriton 3600gt


Depending on the hard drive, it may need to be 'initialized' before the computer can recognize it. This is best done by putting the hard drive in a working computer and going to, if using Windows, right-click My Computer, select Manage and clicking Disc Management where you will see the uninitialized drive.
You will need to create a partition and format it. Then your Acer should see it.
If you don't have a second computer then you will need to insert an operating installation disc in the drive and have that operating system's software format the disc.

Hi, can i install a 720 GB internal hard disk for my acer veriton? my present configuration are windows 7 pro,32 bit 160 GB HDD. thanks in advance.


I found a pdf manual here and it shows that this computer does not have SATA ports, but does have 2 IDE ports, so if it's an IDE hard drive you want to install then you should be able to. However, your 2nd IDE port is likely used by a cd/dvd rom drive, so unless you are replacing the hard drive rather than adding one, you would need to remove the disc drive. There are very affordable external usb disc drives available.

I have recently purchased ACER AMD desktop & now I M facing problem like when I am installing windows 7 cd it reflects like hard disk not found


There is possibly either a non initialised drive in the bay, the drive is not set as master and other problems.
Does the BIOS see the drive and does it know what its size is?
If it does, then the PC will load the required drivers and OS to format the hard drive and place a system on it.
Try again

Motherboard problems


Hi,

Wowee, what a mess that's caused. The Acer Veriton uses a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 2 GHz processor, which you can get most anywhere,eBay Amazon. Acer Veriton M410 Motherboard RS690M03 MBV5309001 iswhat your bords called by. Again you can find those on the same sites. But to be frank, if I were going to have to purchase a new MB and CPU, I'd think about a major upgrade in that box. The only other thing you'd need to purchase would be compatible memory sticks. Don't get me wrong - there nothing wrong with your existing system, but, I look at it as an opportunity to switch to a new technology (since you already have the expense) Most any ATX card will fit into that box from Acer, and your hard drive will work fine. Just a thought!!!!.

Good Luck

Mark

Can't boot computer I get a warnig mssage unofficial case opened


Yes, you can clear this from the BIOS. First make sure the case is completely back together.

I can't recall the exact setting but if you search through the BIOS you will see it. Here's a link to the manual too which might help.

Don't forget to rate my solution if it helps! Thanks.
