Since you already replaced the hard drive and the problem still persist, there are only two things that you need to consider, either replace the power supply if your laptop has no lights when you turn on the pc or replace the motherboard since the circuitry of your laptop is off.One last troubleshooting is to turn off the laptop, remove the cables and battery and press n hold the power button for 8 secs. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and turn it on. If symptom persists, call ACER and have your computer repaired immediately..

Disk drive not opening but getting power


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Reseat hard drive


The hard drive can be removed and reconnected (reseating) by removing the screw/s on the bottom of the laptop. The hard drive compartment will have disk symbol. Open the laptop lid slightly before you slide out the hard drive. Insert the hard drive back into the laptop so it makes proper connection.replace the screw/s.
Boot up the laptop, if it does not boot up then power off and power up and press F1 to go into IBM BIOS setup - check to see if the hard disk is detected. If not then the hard disk is faulty and needs to be replaced then Windows needs to be installed on the new hard disk to get the laptop operating again.

PXE-E61 : MEDIA TEST FAILURE , CHECK CABLE


Normally, your laptop should be configured to boot up from the hard drive before trying the network boot up. When the hard drive fails or is no longer available, or the boot up sequence in BIOS Setup has been changed so that the network boot is set before the hard drive, the symptom you describe fails.
I would recommend that you do the following:
1. Check BIOS Setup & make sure the boot sequence is set in the correct order (Hard Drive 0 should be before Network Boot).
2. Make sure that the hard drive is seated properly in its slot & that all connections are tight.
3. Make sure that the hard drive powers up when you turn on the laptop.

If none of this helps, then your hard drive has failed & might need to be replaced.

Wont boot up, have replaced charger but still wont boot up


laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre to help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.
Hope this fixes your problem.
