Asus laptop will not boot up after install of new hard drive


If your ASUS laptop uses a SATA hard drive -

SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

What is correct hard drive to replace original in an Acer 5051 aspire laptop?


To my knowledge the Acer Aspire 5051 takes a SATA HDD, any 2.5" SATA HDD will do, but you will need to install an operating system once you get it. Here is a link to all the new SATA HDDs on ebay:

Hope this helps you

I want to know what type of hard drive I can use in an Aspire 3680.


The specs show an 80 GB hard drive. Probably ATA (you can tell by looking at the end of the drive--if it has a bunch of pins on it, it's ATA. If there are only two connectors, it's a SATA.
You can probably go to 150 GB or so. Don't go too large or you'll be bound to have problems. Mostly there are 120 GB and larger drives out there now. They don't make 80 GB any more.
