Hey nerjake,

If you are in need of service on your computer, you may always bring it into your local Best Buy™ store location for service and repairs. Geek Squad® agents should be able to provide you with assistance under the manufacturer's warranty, as long as you are able to provide proof of purchase. Typically, a copy of your original receipt or Best Buy Performance Service Plan information is all that's needed in order to verify your warranty coverage.

You may wish to back up any important files you need prior to bringing the unit into your local store however, as software and data recovery work is typically not included in most manufacturer's coverage. Geek Squad® agents can always provide you with this service if necessary, but please remember that operating system and data backup services are an additional charge.

Additionally, the type of noise your hard drive is making can often be an indicator of how quickly you should seek assistance. Any kind of grinding or clicking noises made by the hard drive can often be signs of a serious problem, which may require the hard drive to be replaced.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I have Acer Veriton 5800 desktop and often the noise get louder and faster and then it quieten down. Do you think it a fan?


Most desktops have fans fitted, especially in the power supply.
The bearings and not that good and become noisy when older. They are replaceable but a replacement power supply is far less effort.
Show the fans a plastic pipe from a vacyym cleaner from time to time, that will make the fans more efficient and reduce the wear and noise.
The hard drive can get noisy also, (if it is I would before it is too late), recommend replacing it.
Hope that helps.

Acer Aspire 5100 PC Notebook BIOS: "Fixed Disk Failure 0200"


I had the Error 0200 problem. First the existing hard drive started to play up, so I replaced it with a new 250GB drive. I started getting the 0200 issue after installing the new drive. I wasn't sure what the problem was, I started to wonder if the old drive had been fine. I took out the drive, and opened up the rest of the covering on the laptop to clean it. I found some fluff around the fan, so cleaned this away. Still the problem existed. I was about to give up thinking it was a motherboard problem, when I came across an article where someone mentioned that taking the hard drive out of it cover fixed the problem. Rather than take the drive out of the casing, I loosened the 4 screws holding the hard drive. I put everything back together, powered it up, and it has now been running for 14 hours continiously without any problems. 
Solution, If you have replaced the hard drive, don't tighten the screws holding it in the caseing too tight.
