The acer doesn't comes with the IDE socket so you will have to get the cable that allow this type of convertion to happen. Or it jus doesn't allow IDE drives any at all.

But there are cable that convert the IDE to SATA.

How to replace Acer Aspire 5630 Hard Drive


The link below gives you the user manual. On the computer views is the base view which will show you the correct bay on the bottom of the computer. You will loosed the screws to that bay, remove the cover andl you will see the hard drive. Althought I have not removed this particular laptop hard drive, these drives usually pull up or back using a tab provided. The hard drive will probably have a cradle the actual drive is connected to. You will have to removed the old drive from this cradle and put the new drive back on the cradle exactly the way the old drive was attached,

I hope that this information helps and gives you a place to start solving your issue.

Acer 5536 saying media cable unplugged and no operating system,will not boot up.


Check that your ide cable connecting the drive to the motherboard is connected at both ends.

1. Open computer case.
2. Ground yourself by touching computer chassis before touching any component, especially the drive and the motherboard.
3. Check that the hard drive is attached to the ide cable firmly.
4. Check that the ide cable is attached to the motherboard

Problem in acer aspire 5630


- is the BIOS set to boot from the hard drive ?
- have u changed any drive setting in BIOS (sata mode, pata mode ...)
- try to boot with a linux live cd, or with the vista dvd and see if they can see the drive ... if thay can, than most probably a reinstall of the OS would fix the problem, if not , check the BIOS settings, also make sure that the drive is properly fixed in it;s place, if posible test it on another laptop to be sure if it;s causing the probems or not ...
