Machine will not start when required, circle timer keeps spinning. Will start after hard close.


if your HDD is a refurbished drive then it may still have faulty sectors. try a new hard drive and if still doesn't work try changing the ram you are using it may still appear as if its working but is causing processes to hang

How to fix a bad hard drive.


If you have a hard drive that crashed and can't live with the thought of starting over .. there is one last thing you can do to get your info from the disk!!

FREEZE IT... YES.. i said to put your comp. hard drive in the freezer...

First you need a ESD bag (antistatic bag) You are going to need a new hard drive anyways. When you get your new hard drive. it will come with a ESD bag over it..

Put the old hard drive in the bag...
Put the new drive in your comp.
Put the hard drive in the freezer over night..
24hours in the freezer = about 30mins run time... might get more time out of it if you freeze it longer but ... you will just have to test it

put the hard drive in and test it... if it works ( like it should ) you can use the old hard drive as a backup and keep freezing it to get the info off.

Upgrading from 250 gig hard to a 500 gig hard and says mismatch. my first hard drive is dead


hi pete,

changing the bios will do the trick, find one that is most compatible with aspire 1640 for a 500gig hd, once you have this replaced, it will work.

Trying to use old HD


You need to install Windows. You'll have to buy a Windows XP Home (preferably) installation CD with Certificate of Authenticity and 25-digit registration key. You'll put the CD in the drive and boot the machine, it should boot off the CD and start the Windows XP installation process. Once that is done, your computer should run perfectly.

Hard drive keeps losing space lol


Are you surfing the internet a lot?  You may be getting a lot of temporary files.  Here is something to try.  In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history.  This should help some.  You are always going to go down in space.  Windows updates automatically on a regular basis.  This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.
