Hi, I have a problem with overheating (I think) acer aspire 1355lc notebook.... I have replaced the fan, HDD, and thermal paste, but it shuts down completely bang after just a minute.... what to replace...


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

Screen does not come on . cylinder shaped light (by the power light and on/off light) is not lighting up.


Sound like your Hard Disk drive is not starting up. They are normaly easy to replace, but i would try removing it & putting it into a hdd caddy, there is 2 types, 1 is the old IDe connection & the other is the Sata connection the bigger of the 2 is the IDE and has 2 lines of pins the Sata is normaly a female connector on the drive.

If you can get hold of a caddy insert it & connect it to a freiends pc or laptop to see if it works, it saves buying a new hdd if its not faulty.

PXE-E61: media test failure check cable


The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

Error message Non system disk error replace and strike any key wh


Hi !

This error means either there is no disk (or disconnected/wrong connected) or your HDD is gone (which I don't believe) !

I can't find a reason why you pulled out your HDD when it was (I assume) working good before ?!?

Anyway, . . .now, please check carefully the connectors - both sides, to the HDD and to the Board(if any), if they are properly fit!
It is an IDE disk and there are two groups pins on the HDD. Check the pins if they are all going to plastic male connector (and then to the board.
A group of 4 or 6 pins on HDD should not be connected. There is one pin missing in (about) middle of the second row of pins - it is o.k.

Put your ear close on the chasis of laptop and find if there is a spinning noise when you turn your laptop on.

If there you can hear noise, then check in BIOS if your HDD exists.

If not, try to check it on another Laptop/PC.
Regards.

Replaced hard drive in Toshiba Tecra M9. Laptop.now refuses to re


Look on the back edge of your old HDD where all the gold pins are and on one side there is a group of 4 pins in two rows of two... and see if there is a tiny jumper installed across two of them (white or black about 1/8" tall and 1/16th wide).

Now look on the new HDD and see if there is one there. The NEW HDD must be set up exactly like the OLD one or it won't be detected by BIOS or Windows.

I am beginning to think your LT has the CD as MASTER and the HDD as SLAVE, which may require adding or removing a jumper. Some new ones come with, some without ;-) I didn't think of this earlier

Check that. Email me the result

I just installed a used hard drive bought on ebay for a dell latitude d600 the computer finds 0 dard drive


OK, the big question is #1 do you have the interposer board from the old drive attached to the new one? The interposer is an adapter that covers the pins on the HDD and converts them to a sliding spade type contact to better allow insertion/removal of the HDD.

On a warranty replacement drive, the interposer normally comes on the new drive. On one from EBAY, not sure. If the HDD has 2 rows of exposed pins then it doesn't have an interposer attached. If it has a small adapter protruding say 1/4 inch and it has a row of contacts top and bottom, the interposer is on the drive.

If the interposer is on the drive, the drive may be bad. If it is not, remove the one from the old drive and attach it to this one.

This is clear that your laptop doesnt support SATA and will support only to the previously used type of HDD..

Dell laptop hard drive.


I have never seen a 2.5" drive without the missing pin. It is there to ensure the drive is not connected upside down. I think I would return the new drive if all pins are there. If I couldn't return it then I would think about cutting the unwanted pin after very careful counting.
