ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

Acer aspire x3200 error reading "disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter"


Check to make sure you don't have anything in your floppy drive. (3.5 drive or 5.25 if really old system).

If you can boot from bootable CD then probably your Hard Drive is not working and all other periferals are OK. If it is making clicking noises then the drive arm or the head is most likely shot and you need a new hard drive.

The one chance you do have is if your Hard Drive just needs to be made bootable again. Load up the XP cd as if you where to reinstall XP but instead goto the recovery console, type "fixmbr" at the command prompt once you have entered the XP logon, its very simple once you get there very well laid out.

Hope this helps. Best Regards,

Acer Desktop won't boot after recovery


Why not use your new hard drive as a storage disc. Reconnect your old hard drive as it was before. Hopefully it will boot the computer again. If it does, shut down the unit. On the primary bus, set your old HD as master & the new HD as slave with jumpers. Boot the unit & hopefully you will now have a "c"&"d" HD showing in My Computer. Remember that your are dealing with Windows & what should happen & what really happens can be two entirely different things.

I just wanna know how to replace an acer laptop hard drive with a bigger one


Usually you

1) purchase the new hard drive
2) look around the base of your laptop to find where the HDD is, if you look at the manual which im sure acer will have on its site it will show you
3) usually 1 or 2 screws are unscrewed and you slide out the hard drive, it will be in a special holder
4) unscrew the old hard drive and insert the new one and secure it in place like the old one.
5) insert, re-do screws up, turn on laptop.

this new hard drive wont have any information on it so you will need to reinstall windows on that drive.

TV Tuner


Open your program files on your old HDD, Find your Tv Tuner drivers in there, Now you can either drag them onto your new hard drive or copy them into the Program files on your new Hard drive. Make sure you have them in you new one and then unhook you old HDD and Open TV tuner Files should self install. Or you could also, If you know the name of the tv tuner model and series go to Add New hardware Icon in your control panel. Do it from there when it wants you to install from a specific place choose that option then the name of the device should be there under the network option, find your device and install it from that location I sure Hope that Helps you out
