Over a year ago my acer 5315 laptop stopped working as im not sure why since then i have brought a new laptop, but on the acer it has some old docs and stuff


Ti retrieve the data from your old laptop, remove the hard drive and insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and then connect it into the USB port of your new laptop. Your new laptop will see this as an external mass storage device and you can then open the various folders and files on this hard drive to copy or view them.
If your new laptop cannot detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is faulty.
If you desparately need the data off this old hard drive then there are companies that can retrieve data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you and arm and a leg for their services.

Dont have the original hard disk in my aspire 3000, but I want to restore it to factory settings ??


Go to the acer site, they have the software. I assume you had everything on the old hard drive. Load windows onto your new hard drive. It will detect all your hardware. Actually, since you changed hardware, it no longer is an aspire 3000. I changed out all my stuff in my acer aspire to keep it up to date. The only thing left is the box. As you change hardware the motherboard will detect and adapt. You may still see the aspire logo as it is burned into the bios.

How to replace Acer Aspire 5630 Hard Drive


The link below gives you the user manual. On the computer views is the base view which will show you the correct bay on the bottom of the computer. You will loosed the screws to that bay, remove the cover andl you will see the hard drive. Althought I have not removed this particular laptop hard drive, these drives usually pull up or back using a tab provided. The hard drive will probably have a cradle the actual drive is connected to. You will have to removed the old drive from this cradle and put the new drive back on the cradle exactly the way the old drive was attached,

I hope that this information helps and gives you a place to start solving your issue.

Could be a bad memory chip or a hard drive crash. Can you hear the hard drive engage? If so, is there any clicking or dull thunking sounds? Both of these are indicators of a hard drive failure.

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!


The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!
