Replacing a Hard Drive for acer veriton 1000

Undo the screws at the back of the case then slide the side off front to back direction. Then once inside locate the hard drive and unplug the power cable then the sata cable. Their may be screws holding the hard drive in place also so undo them and slide the drive out. Then slide the new drive in and screw and attach cables. Remember where they go by looking at the old one if your not familier with computer hardware. Hope this helps.

Change DVD drive

Out of an Acer Veriton 6800 series of Desktop PC?

Click on -> Veriton 5800/6800/7800 User's Guide (EN)
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name above it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

[ Ignore if you are aware;
At the top of the PDF file is the Zoom In icon ( + ), and the
Zoom Out icon ( - )
Clicking on Zoom In increases the view size.
Zoom Out decreases the view size.

The PDF file page number box is to the right of the Down Arrow.
You can use the Down Arrow to go page by page,
If you know the page number you want,

1) Put your mouse cursor in the PDF file page number box.
Left-click once.
(Anything in the page number box is now highlighted in blue )

2) Type the page number.
3) Press the Enter key

You can also use the Bookmarks menu to the left.
The page numbers of the PDF file, and the Acer manual do not match.
It is the PDF file page number/s that I will be referring to.

Go to Page 60 (52) - Opening your Veriton 6800/7800
Now go to Page 67.
From here you will have to bear with me. There are no instructions for removing an optical drive.

There are two versions of retaining clips shown, to hold the drives in.
The harddrive, and the optical drive/s.

Increase the view size on Page 67. (59)
The clips shown for each drive bay, has a flat spring clip.

The curved up side towards the back of the computer, (Left), is raised up a little, then the drive is slid out
The locking mechanism for your drives may be this way.
I do not think so, however.

Go to Page 68. Increase the view size.
Those black plastic clips slide back, towards the rear of the computer, to unlock the drive they are next to.
Probably the style you have.

From what I can see here, it looks like the drive slides forward, out of the Front to remove,

May be wrong, but you will know once you see it.

The DVD-R/W+/- optical drive is an IDE unit. (PATA)
It will have this power cable,

{Shown installed in an IDE (PATA) harddrive }

,and this type of data cable,

Notice that both connectors are keyed, for the power cable, and the flat ribbon data cable.

The power cable connector has two rounded off corners. Can only be plugged in one way.
Sometimes after this type of power cable has been plugged in, for a long time, it is hard to remove.

ONLY use the connector, do NOT pull on the wires.
Work one side up a little, then the other side. Keep working the power cable connector until it comes up, and out.

The data cable's connector is keyed also. Has a rectangular small protrusion on one side of the connector.
Goes into a cutout in the optical drive's connector.

IF, the cutout on the optical drive is not there, or IF the connector on the flat ribbon data cable does Not have a 'bump', or protrusion on it, state back in a Comment.
I will guide you in connecting it properly.


[ I posted this because;

1) A quick search reveals hardly any IDE (PATA) optical drives, and,
2) The one's (IDE), I did see were -> O-U-C-H! $$$$

3) PLENTY of SATA optical drives available.
This is because SATA has been out for quite a while now, and
IDE (PATA) is going bye-bye.

A) If you have an open SATA connector on the motherboard, you can use a SATA optical drive.

B) Power Supply needs to have a SATA power cable, or you will need an adapter power cable.

C) You also need a SATA data cable. One with a 90 degree elbow connector on one end, and a straight connector on the other end, of the cable

What makes me think, there may be an open SATA data connector on the motherboard?
1) The computer uses a SATA 160GB harddrive.
2) Plus if this photo of the motherboard is the right one,

,there are -> four Red SATA connectors on the motherboard.
Only one is being used by the harddrive.
Hover your mouse cursor over the photo, starting in the middle. Zooms in.

Go to the Back/Right. See the four red SATA connectors, next to the silvery round CMOS battery?

Here's what they look like up close,

The SATA data cable, and it's connector, is in the Top photo.
The SATA connector on the motherboard it goes to, is the bottom photo.
(Luckily yours, and the example are in Red. However color of the connectors NEVER matters. Can be ANY color )

{ YES. Those pins are S-H-A-R-P! Good thing your fingers are never near them }

The SATA data -> cable's connector has 7 contact pins.
It has an L shape opening, to match the L shaped part on the SATA data connector, -> on the motherboard.

Number 1 SATA connector (SATA1), will have the harddrive plugged into it.
This leaves SATA2, SATA3, and SATA4 open.

Which of the three, should you plug the optical drive's, SATA data cable into?
ANY of them.

The beauty of SATA, is no matter what SATA connector you plug it into on the motherboard, BIOS will find the device.

You plug into any one of the three SATA connectors you want, and BIOS will find your optical drive.

This is an example of a SATA power cable. 15 contact pins,

Adapter power cable in an added Comment,..........

After power on my Acer Veriton 6800 only beeps continously. No VGA Signal, no interaction possible. Motherboard is original, no modifications made. Intrusion sensor is jumpered. Can anybody help?

Either the power supply has failed, or the motherboard. Or possibly the CPU was overheated and burned itself out from cooling fan failure. Smaller possiblity is memory went bad. You should first check the memory, by removing it, blow out the sockets with can of air, then replace one at a time. Try to start PC after 1st one. then remove it and try the other one. Any change evident?
Look at the capacitors and other components on the MB , any sign of swelling, bursting or burning?A new MB will run about $100.

With out being there, it's hard to tell what is wrong.

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

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:
