You may have the jumpers on the hard drive wrone.
Either it has to be your primary hard drive set for master and the second one set for slave or both set for cable select.
You may also have to go into the bios and turn on the secondary hard drive capability.

How do I find the Acer Aspire ASE 380 UD421A schematic?


Computers are wired like a car. Your "wiring harness" comes with plug ins for upgrades, like a second hard drive. In all likely hood if the computer is running correctly, these plugins are for upgrading purposes.

This information should be fairly easy to find in your user's manual. If you don't have one, go to the manufacturers website and search for one there. Almost all manufacturers make these available online. Good luck!

What could be causing a load whiring sound in Acer Aspire ASE380-UD440A


The CPU fan. This is normal. Use canned air to blow dust out if it has become louder than usual.

I cannot get my acer aspire e380 ase380-ud500a desktop cd door open. i do not see a little hole anywhere


It may be hard to see, but there is a very small hole in the CD drive that is almost the exact size of the end of a paper clip. Gently push that paper clip wire into the hole. You will meet some resistance and the drive will open.

Aspire ase380-ud421a cd/dvd drive stopped working


Try going to system setup by hitting Delete when you see the acer/aspire logo when you restart, then open your drive there. If it doesn't work, it is likely that your drive needs to be replaced. You could also try reseating (pulling out and putting back in) the cables inside the computer that's connected to your drive. All else fails, replace the drive.

My acer aspire ase380 emits a short buzzing sound periodically. it sounds more like a speaker buzz and not really my hard drive , does anyone know what it may be? (Hi-temp warning?possibly?)


Could it possibly be a wire rubbing off a fan inside? ive experienced that before. Does the sound start as soon as you turn on the computer or after a while?

Installing HDD


well..the power supply is most likely ok..what you'll need is an interface cable, which is of one of two kinds..if it's new, it's a SATA drive cable, otherwise, it's going to be Eide or IDE..

are you certain that drive is compatible?
