Problem with the Booting/Hard Disk

Hi my name is Diamond and I'm a PC Technician, I have a problem I can't solve right now. I have an Acer 5600 Notebook. Recently my notebook doesn't boot, it freezes on the first screen (the one that's written Acer..Intel Centrino inside blah..blah..blah) but when I remove the hard disk from the system at least I get the no bootable media error message. When the hard disk is on the system, the system freezes. I have even bought a new 80GB Seagate hard disk but the problem doesn't go away. What might be the problem, please help.

    Then if it is faulty, what's the way to solve that problem. Do I have to change it or is there any IC or something that need replacement.

    Chances are, the IDE connection for your laptop is faulty.

    Have you checked it is all in order?

If the IDE connection for the laptop is faulty, you'll need to obtain a replacement from the manufacterer (assuming it's user replaceable - unfortunately not all of them are). If you are comfortable going inside of the laptop itself, then you should be able to determine whether; 1. It's not simply come loose 2. It is indeed user replaceable and not fixed to the motherboard

Hi I have an Acer Travelmate 6492 first I wanted to reset it to factory settings I could not manage that & now it is not booting it's just flashing on top


Hi,
Seems like your hard disk is not getting detected.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Start tapping the DEL key as soon as you power on the computer.
This will take you to the BIOS screen.
If it doesn't, you will have to check whether your hard disk is faulty with a local technician.

Once you get in to the BIOS screen, press F9 to load the default settings.
Than press F10 to save and exit.
Once you do this, the computer will restart.

Hope this helps.

WONT START UP


Check there is no bootable CD/DVD in the drive, if not then there is probably an issue with the laptop's hard disk that needs to be replaced by a technician. You could try booting into Safe Mode to see does that work by pressing F8 just before the Windows logo appears but it sounds like a dying or dead hard disk.

Have you tried running a virus scan, an adware scan and defragmented your drives?
These things should help speed it up.
If its still too slow after doing these things, try disabling programs from booting with windows (such as things in the system tray like yahoo messenger, msn, aol, etc)
