Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
Hi. The hard drive keeps resting after a short time of inactivity. This is causing a couple of seconds of freezing when it fires up again. Is there a way to change the settings so that it runs constantly?
Sure , You can change the settings here:
Click on Start (bottom Left corner of screen)
Click On Control Panel
Click on Power ..or "Power Options"(the icon for power settings)
look there for what is Checked and Unchecked.... (in windows vista- you will have to first click on.. "change plan settings")
Once there.. You can change how your hard drive Runs... in Windows XP you just set the hard drive to .. NEVER... or you can simply set it to shut off after 30 minutes or an hour...
In windows Vista, to set the Hard Drive settings you will first need to click on...Change Advanced Hardware Settings...
Then Choose Hard Disk...then edit the settings there...
Hope it Helps... Happy Computing
