You will still need the original drivers and OS using this method first you need to remove your hard drive, determine wether it is an IDE or a SATA or other connections and get a USB IDE or SATA connection connect this to your hard disk open you HD to another PC like a USB flash Card back up all DAT using this technique then reformat you HD return your HD to you laptop reinstall OS and drivers then you have a fresh laptop. Buying a new Hard disk will also be easier then you can just use your old HDD as a backup. Best of luck read manuals and be careful.

Hard disk sector problems


Yes, and maybe.

How's that for a clear, concise answer?

When using the Restoration Disk, or a fresh new Installation Disk; if there are bad sectors you will be advised that CHKDSK, is about to run. (Or instructed to use CHecKDiSK, and how)

CHKDSK will then see if there are good sectors that it can move info over to, OR; you will be advised that you have an irreparable hard disk. (Harddrive)

Reformatting is using the Restoration Disk, or Full Installation disk; and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

Do NOT click on Format in ANY other way.

USE the Restoration Disk, or Full Installation disk.

(Otherwise you will wipe the harddrive clean, and you do NOT want to do this)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I HAVE A ACER5532 LAPTOP MY SON HAS SET A PASSWORD TO THE IDEO HDD NOW MY LAPTOP WILL NOT BOOTUP WITH OUT THAT PASSWORD HOW CAN I FIX THAT.


A password assigned to the laptop bios can be cleared as it is stored on a temporay memory. but in case of hard disk its permanent storage on the first sector of hard disk.

The only way to get out of it is to format the hard disk. Formating can be done only if the hard disk connected as a seondary hard disk to another PC. Try This method. There is no other way .
If you are not so so expert in this field its better to hand it over to some service outlets or a computer geek. Only he can help you

My aspire l310 won't boot. It keeps telling me media cable test failure and disk boot failure. Help daniel


sounds like hard disk related. turn it off and disconnect the power cord, remove and reconnect both the power and data cables to the hard disk, disconnect any external USB storage and remove any floppy disk, if any. If you get the same result, try to connect the har disk using different power & data cables (IDE/SATA), and test it on another SATA channel if available. If same error, you may need to reformat the hard disk and reinstall WIndows, or you may have to get a new Hard Disk if it fails even when tried on another computer.

Before you go ahead and try reformatting the system , Please disconnect everything from the system (Except Mouse, Keyboard and screen)

I am not familiar with external hd, but with macs.  It will not let you reformat a disk if that is the starup disk.  Instead of disk utility, you need to PROBABLY reinstall the os using a universal full install disk.  That´ll let you reformat the hd.

Hello Ynek,

You can purchase an original system restore disk form here http://www.restoredisks.com/index.asp, it will cost you $34.99.

If you do not want to buy a disk and you have the Windows OS that came with the laptop you can reformat the hard drive put a fresh copy of Windows and download all the system drivers for your model here: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/AcerDrivers/Aspire%203100.pdf?CFID=1781783&CFTOKEN=73017480

Let me know how it turns out for you.
