    I don't think you are correct. When I looked at the hard drive, I'm pretty sure that it was an IDE interface. It had a lot of pins.
    I also need to know what thinkness I can use.

This takes a standard 2.5" sata drive.
They are available anywhere. Here are some on Amazon

Acer aspire 5253 error message no botable device after laptop was dropped on carpet


No bootable device suggests that your Acer Aspire hard disk may have been damaged when the computer was dropped.
You should try opening the cover on the base of the laptop where the hard drive is fitted and check to make sure that the drive is seated firmly and has not come loose with the drop. See the Acer Aspire 5253 Quick Start Guide for the location of the drive cover.
If reseating the drive does not help, then you would need to find any recovery discs that you may have made or received with the laptop plus need to buy and install a replacement hard drive.

if you are getting this message about corrupted partitions, you need to check and possibly replace the hard drive. There is a program to check the hard drive called Hard Disk Sentinel. It is designed for SSD hard drives like the Acer Aspire One has. Yours has a 160GB hard drive in it now.

I can`t start acer aspire 5102wlmi .What do I need?


Start by finding if it's a hardware or software problem by trying to go in the BIOS - if you can't then it's hardware problem. In that case check the battery first, followed by the memory and finally try to go into the BIOS without the hard disk. If even after all that the problem is not solved then it's in the motherboard or the processor - in both cases replacing them will be an expensive job for a professional.

Need to replace acer aspire 5314 hard drive. Where can I find one?


You need a 2.5" 150 Gigabyte drive; however, those laptops are prone to a short in the serial connection from the motherboard. This is an almost impossible task for an novice user to change a motherboard and the cost is not worth it. I installed a new hard drive and although the laptop recognized it, it still will not recognize it and load the operating system. Tested drive on another laptop and it works flawless. The hard drive became bad from the short which you can sometimes hit the bottom of the unit and make it work long enough to backup the data.

Take out the hard drive from the laptop and reseat it back into position. Sometimes reseating the hard drive will get it to be recognized by the BIOS. After you reseat the hard drive, go into the BIOS and see if its recognized in there. If it is then try to format the hard drive. If it still doesn't see it then your hard drive will need to be replaced.
