Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I bought a new hard drive for my acer 5100 and it just keeps rebooting the old hard dive is wd 1200bevs-11rsto the new ends with 22usto is that a problem?
The different model of hard drive should not make a difference. As long as you are using the same type....IDE or SATA...you should be fine.
If you installed the new drive and now the computer keeps rebooting....you probably need to tell the computer to boot from the CD first and not the Hard Drive. When you first turn on the laptop, boot into BIOS by hitting the DELETE or F2 key....it is normally the Delete key.
This will boot into BIOS where you can find the BOOT OPTION menu and select the CD as the first boot device. This will allow the computer to boot from the Windows CD you should already have in your cd drive.
If this does not help.... I would take the new hard drive out and boot the computer without any drive installed. If you are still in a reboot loop, the problem is not with the hard drive and more than likely an issue with the RAM. To rule out the RAM, take one stick out and see if that makes a difference...repeat with the second stick....
Hope this helps
