In your device manager did you try deleting the driver and restart the computer? It will reload the driver on start up.

    If that doesn't work it may be that your optic is dirty and needs cleaned. If dirty the drive will not work.

SOURCE: HDD not recognised

HI Your Hard Drive is previously formatted and have done different partition provided by your previous machine where you took this hard drive from. Use "The Partition Magic" Software, it will help you to fix and repartition your hard drive in the new format. I have this problem before and now my hard drive can connect with any computer. The key in this issue is any hard drive goes with the original machine has been formatted and do its own partition from manufacturer so if you take it out later for use with other machine, you will need a software to completely rearrange the new partition in universal format so other computers can recognize it. This manufacturer purpose to protect your data from hacking, stealing once you take it out from the original machine. That is why when you connect it to other machine, this hard drive will not be recognized. I has this partition magic software and can make you a copy so you don't have to buy it. Just read the instruction and you can fix it for both 2.5" and 3.5" HD. Please email me at joe_dao2003@yahoo.com and provide me your mailing address, I can send the copy software to you. Regards, pingping

SOURCE: Hard drive isn't recognized

Great advice tech8 !!! That worked for me. I was frustrated with this problem for the last month. It looks like my chief problem was that the drive letter previously being used for this HDD was assigned to a different network path. It looks like it didn't automatically give a new drive letter. Your solution worked great!

THANK YOU!

SOURCE: Code 10 - device can't start

hard drives are plug n play devices they dont need a driver may if you are connecting it using USB then it must be asking for USB driver if you already have it then update it.

if you are connecting it using IDE then you have to install the motherboards IDE controller drivers insert the Motherboard CD and install All the drivers you have in the list.

SOURCE: hard drive not recognized

make sure your using your jumper correctly if your using ide.
however if your using a sata drive go into the control panel and click on the device manager check under disk drives and if it is recognized then you most likely need to add the drivers.if it still dose not want to work contact the support line for the manufacture and or windows but i do beleave that my advice should fix or help find the problum.

Acer extensa 4630z I am trying to reboot Vista but I cannot get to the proper screen. I can get no further than Edit Windows boot options for: Microsoft Windows Vista


You may have to get a CD/DVD of Vista from your friend or associate for reinstallation of the operating system. If you go to Windows 7 or 8.1 you would be better off than waste time with Vista and all of its problems. If the CD Drive is not working, get an External USB CD/VDV drive from WalMart. They are not expensive and they come in handy at times. Plug the external CD/DVD into a USB port and start up the computer seeking the new device. Run the Software the same as you would from your unstable device.

Acer extensa 4620z whe i shutdown laptop it's shutdown but the screen power still remains on untill i hold the power button to off , please help me


It seems that your computer needs to have a reinstall of your original setup, because the driver that tells it to shut down is not cooperating. Hopefully you have your original dvd/cd.

I wanna reformat my acer 4620z laptop but i dont know how to. any kind souls able to help me out with this problem??


Hi there,

First thing, you must have the Windows XP/Vista Installer with you.

This CD will be the one you will use to reformat and install a fresh copy of windows OS on your Laptop.

Once you have this Windows Installer, put it on the Laptop CD Tray, and the rest will be easy for you.

A installing wizard will guide you to setup process.

Let me hear from you again for any clarification of your problem.

Thanks.
