Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
I returned my laptop to acer 6 times. They changed the motherboard 4 times, reinstalled windows once (the fact that they didn't try to charge me anything is an admission that it's nothing I did--I wasn't even using windows) and told me my hard drive was bad once. I knew the hard drive wasn't bad, confirmed by the fact that they changed the mother board 2 more times afterwards (I'd refused to pay 180 euros to replace a working hard drive which was still under their and it's manufacturers guarantee).
The problem is either on a whole slew of their motherboards, or that the case of this machine doesn't hold the drive in a good spot.
I've worked around it by installing linux on an external usb drive and removing the ide drive that was inside.
My question is, have you seen a lot of this? I'd like to find the people affected and get some interest in a class action suit. I've already stopped recommending acer to my customers.
thanks for any input
I have sent in my Acer travelmate 2480 in 3 times, and once again, it is having the same problem as the last time I sent it in. Mine has the vista home basic os on it, and I am wondering if that is the problem. I am frustrated, and can't install linux because I am not experienced with operating systems and installations. I am tired of Acer replacing the motherboard and hard drive when clearly that is not the problem. How can they get away with this?

Acers have had that problem before, their motherboards are out of date and seem to be having problems, there was recently a recall on the acer laptops as well, you could contact the manufacture adn request a full refun on your computer, take that money. your best bet for getting a a pc that is cheap and works very well with no recalls or problems would be dell or toshiba.
